Cute enough. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood. Maybe I expected it to be suitable for bedtime and felt the dissonance that it's not. It's lively & fun with nice illustrations. Read other reviews if you're trying to decide whether to order it. ( )

One by one, a whole host of different animals and birds find their way out of the cold and into Bear's cave to warm up. But even after the tea has been brewed and the corn has been popped, Bear just snores on! See what happens when he finally wakes up and finds his cave full of uninvited guests -- all of them having a party without him! ( )

A funny story of some animals taking refuge in a bear's den over the winter, and trying not to wake the bear. But when the bear does wake, everyone needs to watch out! A story of winter, sharing, and sleep. ( )

Bear Snores On is a part of a larger series of picture books by Karma Wilson which tells of the adventures of a bear and his friends. The story itself is an easy read that may be best suited for 1st grade readers who are able to read independently. The books are all written in a similar format, even though they have very different stories. This could be helpful for readers who need some scaffolding and can learn the format but still need to be able to read the words independently. ( )

Ages 3-6. "In a cave in the woods, in his deep, dark lair, through the long, cold winter sleeps a great brown bear." To the rhythm of such fetching verses, a tiny mouse seeks shelter in a bear's snug cave. A hare soon follows, and the two quietly pop corn and brew tea as "bear snores on." Then a badger arrives with crunchy nuts to share, followed by a gopher, a mole, a wren, and a raven. Bear's den is full and noisy (as indicated by the large, bold type), but bear still "snores on." Then a fleck of pepper for the stew mouse is seasoning makes Bear sneeze, and he awakens to the revelers in his cave. Happy for the company and the food they have prepared, he stays up all night telling stories. In the morning, it's Bear who is awake; everyone else is fast asleep and snoring. The comfy look of Bear's cave and the snappy rhythm of the text beckon youngsters into the story, and the expressively drawn, amusingly posed animal characters ensure repeated readings.

Book description
It seems like Bear can sleep through anything. As a succession of animals enter his cave to escape the fierce storm, he continues to snore. Mouse makes a nice warm fire, Hare cooks popcorn and Badger brings treats...They are having a great time. But when Bear wakes up and realizes he's missed out on the fun, his visitors fear the worst. Can Bear be persuaded to join the party? This read-aloud rhyming story has fun, suspense and a happy ending. Ages 3-7.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0689831870, Hardcover)

On a cold windy night, an itty-bitty mouse "pitter-pat, tip-toe, creep-crawls" into a sleeping bear's cozy lair, looking for relief from the bitter winter weather. Soon he is joined by a veritable menagerie of woodland animals, and the party begins. Popping corn, brewing tea, tweeting, and chatting, the critters enjoy themselves thoroughly while the bear slumbers through it all. Until, that is, an errant pepper flake from the simmering stew wakes him up with a giant sneeze. As the bear goes from ferocious snarls and rumbles to pitiful whimpers, his uninvited guests realize what the problem is.
You've snuck in my lair
and you've all had fun!
But me? I was sleeping
and...
I have had none!
Not to worry. Mouse knows just what to do.

First-time author Karma Wilson and artist Jane Chapman (illustrator of Phyllis Root's One Duck Stuck) have created a charming little tale of sharing and caring that will have readers of all ages cheering at the humorous finale. (Ages 3 to 7) --Emilie Coulter
