Sleepover with Beatrice & Bear review

19635754 How can two friends share winter when one of them is hibernating? Beatrice and Bear meet one spring day and become best buddies. They play together through summer and fall. Then winter comes and Beatrice can’t find Bear anywhere. She hears he’s gone to hibernate—but where on earth is that? When Beatrice learns that hibernation is not a place and that Bear will be sleeping all winter long, she fears it will be a lonely season . . . unless she comes up with a brilliant plan to share winter with Bear too. (goodreads summary)

Beatrice and Bear played all through spring, summer and fall until it was time for Bear to settle in for a long winter sleep... Beatrice thinks it is an opportunity for a sleepover with her new best friend until she learns bunnies are not made for hibernating. She soon comes up with a brilliant idea that will help Bear experience all the wonderful things about winter that the two will miss together.  This is a charming story about friendship, problem solving and creativity. It is a perfect read-aloud for the upcoming change of seasons and discussion about hibernation. The cute illustrations captured the personality of each character so well that I could feel Beatrice's enthusiasm throughout the book. I think this is a "just right book" for ages 3-7.~
