It seems like Bear can sleep through anything. As a succession of animals enter his cave to escape the fierce storm, he continues to snore. Mouse makes a nice warm fire, Hare cooks popcorn and Badger brings treats... They are having a great time. But when Bear wakes up and realises he's missed out on the fun, his visitors fear the worst.Can Bear be persuaded to join the party? This read-aloud rhyming story has fun, suspense and a happy ending - with Jane Chapman's beautiful, captivating illustrations and Karma Wilson's absorbing, lyrical words perfectly depicting the companionship of the warm, cosy cave and the contrast with the wild storm outside.

A great book to share with your little ones. There is storm outside do the animals decide to use the bears cave. The bear is usually sleeping but they wake him up. He sees what fun they are having so let's see them stay. There is more in the set which are just as good

This is another bedtime favourite for Georgie. She loves all of the different animals and all of the human activities that they do. 
We love the lines that repeat and she always joins in.
We like best that despite their differences all of the animals get on.

It is winter and Bear is fast asleep and snoring. His friends decide to sneak into Bear's cave one by one to get out of the cold. Will they wake up Bear?

A lovely story to share at bedtime. It is my daughter's favourite of all the Bear stories we have read. Highly recommended.

This is another firm favourite at bedtime! We have a version which has a snore button and my children enjoying being part of the story! The illustrationis beautiful and we all love the repetition which is usually read as a joint effort. My children love all the different animals in this story and the fun they all have

This is a beautifully written and illustrated book, teaching about hibernation (with a lovely end). Bear snores as his friends party around him! Lovely rhymes and not too long so my daughter engages well. The only trouble is that being quite a large hardback she is unable to manouvre it easily on her own, but this would be fine for an older preschooler.
