    1. It's winter time and bear wants to sleep (hibernate). But bear's friends do not care, they just want him to come out and play in the snow. Bear says no and tries to go back to sleep but now he cannot sleep because he can hear his friends playing outside. So bear goes outside and plays and plays and play until his friends beg him to go back to his house and sleep.Good way of exploring KUW in EYFS and different animals and their behaviours. The pictures and bubble writing is really engaging and in [...]


    2. Bear is in his PJ's and is ready for his long winter nap. As he climbs into bed, his friends the mischievous raccoons have a completely different plan. They finally entice Bear to leave his comfy bed and go out for some fun. They play so hard they are all ready for a nap. Brett Helquist is a fantastic illustrator and has done an amazing job of bringing this story to life. I really enjoyed how he has pulled his graphic novel style to create this fun story.


    3. Bear has just nestled down for the winter when his rascally raccoon friends beg him to come out and play. Finally convinced, they have a rip roaring time, and in the end it is the raccoons who have to beg bear to go back in to sleep. The playful text and bubble word format make it visually appealing and entertaining to read. Helquist's illustrations (also the illustrator of A Series of Unfortunate Events) are delightful and energetic with some full two page spreads.


    4. Brett Helquist also illustratedA Series of Unfortunate Events . In this picture book, Bear's raccoon friends run over after the first snowfall. They beg and plead, but Bear says it's bedtime for bears. When Bear tries desperately to sleep, the raccoons' noise as they frolic in the snow keeps him up.Comic-like word bubbles and well portrayed emotions make this book a visual delight.


    5. It's time for Bear's hibernation, but his friends are outside making too much noise. They beg him to come and play one last time. He gives in and they have fun in the snow together. Then, it really IS bedtime for Bear.


    6. Wonderful illustrations tell the story of a bear who is just about to settle in for the winter, when his two raccoon friends convince him to come outside and play in the snow one last time before sleeping. Very fun story.



    7. It was the first snowfall, which meant it was time for Bear to hibernate and sleep for the rest of the winter. However, Bear’s friends wanted him to go outside and play with them. He told them that he could not because it was his bedtime and turned around and tried to sleep. But, he could not sleep because all he could hear were his friends laughing and playing outside. He finally got tired of the noise and got up to go tell them to keep it down. When he opened the door, he was in for a big su [...]


    8. Bear is supposed to be hibernating, but his two little raccoon friends want him to have one fun day in the snow first. He tries to resist, but when he goes outside to tell them he absolutely must go to bed, the raccoons start a snowball fight that leads to a cold, wet day filled with snowmen, snowballs, and sledding. This book uses a graphic novel format on many pages , and includes lots of sound words (hee, haw, yawn, haha ), written all in caps that add dimensions to the story.


    9. Bears hibernate in the winter.The problem in this story is that Bear's friends dont understand and wants him to stay and play in the snow. Because his friends are outside playing, bear cant seem to sleep. I would recommend this book for grades prek through 1st grade. It is a good book to talk about animal characteristics and habitats. It can also be used in language arts to study elements of story such as problem and solutions.


    10. A great tale before bed. A bear is ready to go to bed for the winter, but his pesky friends don't want to let him sleep quite yet. It's a fun romp in the snow and everyone gets their way. Great illustrations. Dream Big (Summer Reading Program 2012) recommended bookAvailable from OCLS in print.


    11. Brett Helquist also illustrated A Series of Unfortunate Events . In this picture book, Bear's raccoon friends run over after the first snowfall. They beg and plead, but Bear says it's bedtime for bears. When Bear tries desperately to sleep, the raccoons' noise as they frolic in the snow keeps him up.Comic-like word bubbles and well portrayed emotions make this book a visual delight. This would be a great opposite to Spring is Here


    12. This is a fun story that features great illustrations and lots of onomatopoeia. It's a good book to read aloud, especially at bedtime (although it could get children wound up with all the sliding and outdoor fun.) We loved the winter scenes and I loved that it shows Bear settling down for a quiet rest after a rousing playtime.


    13. It's winter so Bear is trying to sleep. But his friends want him to come out and play. He is just too tiredbut his friends manage to wake him up and they have a grand time playing in the snowuntil finally it is bedtime for bear. The illustrations are wonderful. I love Bear's expressions and the joy and fun conveyed through the text but primarily through the illustrations. Wonderful!


    14. While both a similiar title (A Bedtime for Bear by Bonny Becker, 2010) and along the same vein themes of a bear trying to hibernate while fending off requests from friends to play have been done, this book offers a decent package of fun, vividly amusing illustrations and attractive characters. Worth a readaloud to preschool audiences.


    15. Bear is ready to settle down for a long winter sleep, but his friends want him to come out and play just one. more. time. Fun story, and could be a jumping off point for a conversation about hibernation.


    16. Bear's ready to hibernate, but his friends are having fun outside in the snow. With a combination of traditional text and comic book conventions like word bubbles and onomatopoeia actions, this is as fun to look at as it is to read.


    17. Shouldn't have read this right after Bonny Becker's book of the same title; hers is far superior. I am a fan of Brett Helquist and his almost-comics style here, but the whole thing didn't wow me. Sigh.


    18. Fun book about Bear's last romp with friends before going to sleep for the winter. The illustrations are amazing--the beauty of the snow and the humor of the animals' emotions, Bear's pretty house. The author was the illustrator for the Lemony Snickett books Series of Unfortunate Events.


    19. Probably closer to a 3.5. I've never seen a picture book by Helquist before -- I love his brush strokes. This book would be good for a dialog study, and it would work with that other book about a bear going to sleep Bear Snores On


    20. Bear's raccoon buddies want to have one last play day with him before he snoozes off for the season. Bear very reluctantly joins them. (If performing this to a crowd it's best to have two or even three actors).


    21. Illustrations were a 5, storyline was a 3. I have a hard time with books that have the story and then bubbles with what the characters are saying to each other. Max thought it was pretty funny, and we read it a few times.


    22. 3.75 starsThis book at first frustrated me. I don't like to be bugged when I am sleeping or going to sleep. But, at the end it gave me a chuckle so it got a high rating. I like the pictures and the colors. Bedtime for meoh I wish!!


    23. A super cute book about a bear who is just about to hybernate for the winter, when his racoon friends try and convince him to play with them one more day before they have to say good bye until spring. Fun illustrations and a cute story.


    24. Another in the bear-stays-up-to-experience-winter plotline, but this is better than most. Sleepy, grouchy bear doesn't want to go out and play, but slips on the snow as he chases his snowball-throwing friend. Sledding and snowball fun ensue.


    25. This is a humorous and fun story. It is time for bears to go to sleep for the winter, but bear's friends have something else in mind, they want to play! My kids enjoyed this book.



    26. Bear is asleep for the winter but 2 raccoon friends plead with him to play with them. A frolicking book that is very fun!



    27. The wonderful artwork elevates this above it's "been there, done that" plot of a bear who skips hibernating to play in the snow.
