What I'm Reading #97: Winter Bear Book #2

On the theme of Bear Hibernation in Children's Books versus Thanksgiving, I offer you this second selection. "Time To Sleep" by Denise Fleming is not just a story of a change in seasons, but also of a community that takes care of its members no matter how different they are.

Bear realizes that it's time for Winter and tells Snail. Snail tells Skunk. Skunk tells Turtle, Turtle tells Ground Hog, Ground Hog tells Lady Bug, and Lady Bug tells Bear! But bear has already begun her sleep...

Besides amazingly beautifully illustrations, it's a cornucopia of diversity and teaching about community that is inclusive of the "other".
