Wake Up Bear

Written by Lynley Dodd

Suitable for: 5-7 years (Key stage 1)

A picture book by an award-winning illustrator about a bear who carries on snoring and refuses to move when spring comes and all the animals are waking up from their long sleep, until there is a buzz in the air.

Listen to an audio clip

On the cover there's a picture of a big, brown bear fast asleep in a small cave in a grassy bank. He is lying back with his back resting against the back of the cave and his legs poking out of the front. His arms are crossed over his big, round, brown furry tummy and his legs are also crossed. He does look very comfortable! The sun is shining and it is a beautiful sunny day.
