A masterpiece. Bear books are good, but this is the best. ( )

This book was such a cute read. This book was about a bear who was really sleepy during the winter and just wanted to sleep, but his friends wanted to keep him up to get ready for Christmas. They helped him bake, find a Christmas tree, sing Christmas songs, and hang the stockings. The illutstrations for this book are amazing! They are so cute! On one page, you see Bear and rabbit stringing popcorn on the Christmas tree, and details are so precise. Not to mention the color that Jane Chapman used throughout the book to give off such a warm vibe. Overall this book was really good, but I'm not sure if you can have Christmas books in your classroom. ( )

I am giving this book four stars because it is a jolly Christmas book with a pleasant message. This is a trade holiday book, but it can be used for more than talking about Christmas. A bear who has just begun to hibernate for the winter gets woken up from his slumber by his friends. His friends want him to stay up for Christmas this year. Bear really wants to as well, so his friends try hard to keep him awake. Eventually the bear stays up and sees Santa, while his friends all fall asleep. In the morning, all the friends give each other thoughtful presents, and bear goes back to sleep with his cozy new quilt. I think the meaning behind this story is all about friendship. Bears friends want him to experience Christmas, so they do everything to help him stay awake. In the end they each give each other thoughtful presents, which is always nice. This could be used in classrooms to talk about hibernation, or about friendship. In some classrooms, talking about Christmas is not allowed, but this book does not get too into the actual holiday. The illustrations in this book are very pretty. They make everything seem nice, and they display the friendship between all the animals. ( )
