Every Autumn Comes the Bear
Written by Jim Arnosky
This is a beautifully written and illustrated book by Jim Arnosky. It is a story of autumn and wildlife in the wilderness, as a bear gets ready for winter hibernation. It is perfect for setting the stage for more in-depth research into the life of wild animals in the Northern hemisphere. Children may be curious about hibernation. They may ask questions like, “Do other animals hibernate or just bears?” “How can they sleep so long?” “Don’t they get hungry?” What do other animals do during winter?” It made me very curious about the lives of bears and other animals. I would recommend this book for children ages 4 to 8 years old.
