The first day of spring, Bear wakes up voracious. His friends suggest varied food to eat, but Bear wants more. This is a rhyming story.

When springtime comes,
in his warm winter den
a bear wakes up
very hungry and thin!..."
Bear finds some roots to eat, but that's not enough. He wants more! With his friends' help, he finds some berries, clover, and fish to eat, but that's not enough. Bear wants more!
How Bear's friends help him to finally satisfy his HUGE hunger in a most surprising way will enchant young readers. Karma Wilson's rhythmic text and Jane Chapman's vibrant illustrations make Bear Wants More a perfect springtime read-aloud. -- GoodReads

Gift from Meghan R

Bear wakes up from his long winter nap HUNGRY! He proceeds to eat and eat, and always wants more...until he is too fat to get back into his cave (a la Winnie the Pooh). All his forest friends keep him company. A sweet story with charming illustrations, but the toddler didn't latch onto it, so we didn't check out more of the Bear books. I liked it, though! Would read in storytime. ( )

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 ( )

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.
