The image of a bear hibernating through a long and snowy winter is a cozy one. The arrival of non-hibernating animals seeking refuge is highly plausible, as is the depth of the bear's sleep. Let the fun begin! A few tasty treats shared among a few friends make for merry festivities. The author allows young listeners to appreciate the rhyme and beat of the story, to soak in the humor, and to admire the illustrations. She is gruff yet tender as the hero who first awakens rudely and then appreciates the moment. She gives sparkle to supporting creatures such as rabbits, rodents, and birds. Music and sound effects complete the recording. A.R. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
