Publisher's Summary

In the fall
When leaves turn red
Bears know soon
It’s time for bed
Comes winter
Comes snow
Bears are ready
Bears go
In their cave
Warm and deep
Winter is time
For bears to sleep

A lilting read-aloud text and stunning pictures combine to make an irresistibly appealing picture book that follows these fascinating animal friends through the cycle of the year. A page of facts about bears will answer young readers’ questions as they begin to explore the wonders of the natural world.

The illustrations are more realistic than not, and even though it's told in rhyming verse that clips along at a soothing pace, I still felt like it was teaching the cycle of hibernation in an informative way—I really appreciated that it went through an entire year.
