Bear Is Not Tired
Author: Ciara Gavin
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Summary: Bear is supposed to sleep through the winter, but he is afraid that he will miss out on the Duck family’s fun. He tries to fight off the sleepy feeling he has, but Mother Duck finally says that bears are supposed to sleep through the winter. He cannot fight who he is. She even promised him that he wouldn’t miss anything. When Bear wakes up refreshed and ready to go in the spring he sees that Mother Duck has kept her promise. She gives him a photo album of what they did during the winter. The end page of the book has “photos” of how Bear was included in the family all winter long.
Review: This is a very cute book. It’s a nice story of how much Bear and the Duck family love each other. But Bear still needs to do what is right for him, and the Duck family included Bear in their winter activities whenever they can. The illustrations are cute and expressive. A sweet book to share with a child.
