This is a sweet story about a bear who is hibernating in his deep dark lair. One by one, his forest friends gather in his den to eat popcorn and drink black tea. When bear is awakened, his emotions take over, but his friend mouse knows just what to do. The illustrations are soft and inviting, and the story has a lovely rhyming flow that is easy to read. My students and I love this story! ( )

This book was so silly and so cute. I found it very entertaining to read. The way the animals come in the the cave while bear is sleeping, trying to not wake him up. I found the illustrations very pleasing to look at, and the story very easy to follow.

This book has many animals in it. The book talks about how the other animals try to be quiet and not wake the bear up. When he accidentally wakes up it turns out that the bear is really nice.

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.
