Illustrations: acrylic paint. This book is about a bear who wakes up from hibernation and is very hungry. All of his friends try bringing him food, he eats it, but he is still hungry. A party is thrown for the bear and there is a whole bunch of food there waiting for the bear to eat. Finally, the bear's tummy is full! This book is fantasy because the animals in the story are talking, but the story is somewhat realistic and the setting is the forest, which is realist as well. Age appropriateness: primary ( )

Bear wakes up from hibernation and wants plenty of food to eat. He goes on an adventure and find friends that lead him to tasteful food. He eats and eats until he cannot eat anymore. Bear is too big to fit into his own den so Bear and his friends stay outside and Bear eats all of the cookies his friends are hungry now. This would be a great book to introduce hibernation to students. ( )

About a hungry bear who wants to keep eating after hibernation. His friends throw him a party/feast, bear ends up Full and his friends hungry. Not a very good book on sharing. ( )

PreS-Gr. 2. What happens after a bear breaks the fast of hibernation? In this rhyming follow-up to Bear Snores On (2002), Bear emerges as a lean, mean, eating machine. His animal friends help him find food, and he munches his way through the forest. As his grub crawl proceeds, both the words of the refrain ("But the bear wants more!") and Bear himself increase in size. Other friends busily plan a party for Bear back at his lair. Later all the friends must work together to pry the overfed, very stuck Bear from the entrance to his den. The story is fun and funny, but it takes a backseat to the illustrations. Chapman's acrylic paintings have a freshly washed look that conveys the newness of spring, and they are layered with delightful comic touches--Bear's increasing girth, his friends' bemused expressions, and the flower crown he wears at his picnic, after which he falls asleep. Now Bear is "full, full, full . . . but . . . his friends want more." An appealing romp about springtime and friendship.
