Bear is snuggled in his cave for the winter. He sleeps all day and all night. The cold wind can’t even wake him up. He just snores on. Then, one day, something unexpected happens, and he is woken up. John McDonough’s playful narration helps listeners become involved in these woodland creatures’ activities.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 2/20/2014

    " Illustrated by Jane Chapman. A definite storytime favorite. This whole "series" of books has sweet characters, great rhymes, and text that kids can join in with. They are stories that always please at storytime. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 2/17/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meredith | 2/16/2014

    " I love this book and the kids love this book. The repeated phrase of "Bear Snores On" is fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie | 2/14/2014

    " My daughter likes this book, but I love reading this book out loud. The rhyming is so fun and has such a great rhythm. It's a little long and wordy for the little ones, but at 18 months, my daughter will actually let me read all the words on every page. (Something she was too impatient for before turning 18 months.) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Amichia | 2/9/2014

    " "Bear Snores On" is a great read aloud for children due to its colorful pictures and repetitive catch phrase. I was able to make many text-to-self connections with this book (i.e. feeling excluded, people they know who snore, etc). I had a fun time reading this to my first graders!! "
