PreSchool-K–A cuddly brown cub and his friends wake from peaceful sleep with the urgent command to hurry for a party. Wake up, wake up, sleepy rabbits!/Time to rise, time to shine,/Hurry up, it's party time! They gather roots, seeds, nuts, and berries and join the parade of animals quietly creeping along the forest. They reach a clearing, where a mother deer rests. Nearby is her newborn fawn. Wake up, wake up, sleepy fawn!/Time to rise, time to shine,/Time to start your living-time! The animals all welcome the newest addition and present their gifts as the fawn rises to join the celebration. The soft, pale-hued, lifelike illustrations will be a big hit with toddlers and preschoolers. Perfect for groups as well as for one-on-one sharing.–DeAnn Okamura, San Mateo County Library, CA
