Shh! Bears Sleeping


Shh! Bears Sleeping
By David Martin
Illustrated by Steven Johnson and Lou Fancher
Viking, 2016. Picture Book.

The picture book follows a mother bear and her two cubs through the cycle of a year: waking up from hibernation and then enjoying the spring, summer, and fall until they hibernate again only to wake up to another spring. With the rhyming text and soft colors of the oil paintings, it makes it a great picture book to read aloud to a little one. An afterword in the back explains more about bears’ lives and winter hibernation that a parent can read to be prepared to answer questions that a curious little mind might ask.
