9780761453048: Don't Wake Up the Bear! (Board Buddies)

It’s a cold, snowy night, and a big, soft bear sleeps soundly in his cave. A small hare wanders by, and since his ears are so cold, he snuggles up in the bear’s cozy den. Before long, a fox comes along with the same idea. "You may come in," says the hare, "but don’t wake up the bear!" As the night wears on, the nest of sleeping animals expands until a mouse with a cold curls up right in the bear’s ear-and wakes him up with a loud sneeze! Warm, playful illustrations and a repeating refrain make this bedtime book perfect for year-round reading.

About the Author:

Author Marjorie Dennis Murray is a nursery school teacher and the author of three books for children, including Little Wolf and the Moon and The Stars Are Waiting. She lives in Regent Square, Pennsylvania, with her husband and daughter.

Illustrator Patricia Wittmann is both an artist and writer. Her books include Go Ask Giorgio and Scrabble Creek. Her illustrations also appeared in Clever Gretchen by John Warren Stewig and were described by reviewers as "soft-edged, sunny watercolors full of winsome detail" (Kirkus Reviews). Ms. Wittmann lives in Seattle, Washington, with her husband.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-On a winter's eve, as a bear sleeps in his cozy cave, a cold-eared hare creeps in to snuggle in his soft fur. Several animals join her to warm up various extremities. Each time she warns, "-don't wake up the bear!" A mouse is the last to arrive, curling up in his ear. However she develops the sniffles and lets loose a loud sneeze. The lumbering creature wakes up and growls and the animals scatter. The bear merely trudges off and snacks on some berries. Murray's tale is written in clear language and repetitive refrains. Wittmann's large watercolors adeptly depict the frigid landscape as oversized snowflakes float in and around the text. The animals are naturalistically rendered and have slightly humanized facial expressions. While this story is not highly original, its reassuringly predictable suspense and satisfying ending make for a fun winter read-aloud.
