Middle Brother is affectionately called Bear in our house, which maybe explains all the roaring, and has never slept as much as he’s “supposed to” at any given age. So when I saw this book, I had to get it for him.
Wide-Awake Bear is so cute! Middle Brother went and got his bear to snuggle with while we read. A bear cub is supposed to be hibernating, but no matter what he does, he is still wide awake. While the story hits a little close to home as the mother of a toddler, the illustrations are adorable, and Middle Brother actually sat through the whole story.
If you’re looking for a good snuggly story with an opportunity to teach about hibernation, this one’s for you.
