9780060596767: Sleepyhead Bear

It is a hot summer day, and
Bear's eyes are droopy.
But . . .
BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
pesky bugs are buzzing
here and there and everywhere.
What is a sleepy little bear to do?
He could try a growl.
GRRRRRR!
He could try a roar.
ROAR!
He could try swimming
and climbing and hiding
and running . . .
oh, dear!

It's a hot summer day, and
now Bear really needs a rest. Help!

About the Author:

Lisa Westberg Peters is the author of Sleepyhead Bear; Cold Little Duck, Duck, Duck; Earthshake: Poems from the Ground Up; and several other books for children. She lives with her family in St. Paul, Minnesota.



Ian Schoenherr grew up near Locktown, New Jersey. He has written and illustrated three books—Read It, Don't Eat It!; Cat & Mouse; and Pip & Squeak—and illustrated numerous books by other authors, including Little Raccoon's Big Question, by Miriam Schlein. The artist lives in Woodside, New York.

From School Library Journal:

PreS A little cub is exhausted but can't get to sleep due to all of the buzzing, stinging, and whirring bugs. He tries to escape, first in the water, later by hiding in a log. Then the log rolls away with him stuck inside and he lands, with bumps all over, in a meadow. Here he finds just flowers and butterflies that flutter and dip,/flutter and stir, tickling him until he's no longer angry and sore. Finally, he is an at-last-asleep/Bear. The story is slight and the impact of Bear's plight is limited. It doesn't make sense that a meadow full of flowers would be a safe haven what about bumblebees? The rhyming text is at times light, energetic, and fun but also lapses into clunkiness. Schoenherr's acrylic-and-ink artwork makes use of a fine line for texture and creates lively backdrops and expansive action sequences. However, the characters are not very endearing with their elongated limbs and ears, pointy snouts, and big eyes. Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI
