Wake up, Hanna Bear!

Hanna Bear can smell winter coming. It's time to find a den and snooze through the cold days and nights until spring because that is what bears do. But this year Hanna longs to see Christmas, so her friends agree to get her up for the special day. It isn't that easy to wake up a sleeping bear. When the mountain goat butts the door of her den, Hanna doesn't stir. So the moose tries, but even the sound of his antlers scraping back and forth doesn't wake up Hanna. The spruce grouse tries, and then the snowshoe hare, but no one can make enough noise.

What are they going to do? They don't want to disappoint Hanna. But each one has made as much noise as they can. What more can they do?

Children will enjoy making their own brand of noise as they follow along with the animals and help wake up Hanna. And they'll revel in the magic of a Christmas night, as they follow Hanna and her friends through the woods. A fun story for little ones about when to cooperate, when to make noise, and when to be silent.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

With Christmas falling smack in the middle of her sleep, what's a holiday-loving bear to do? Hanna Bear knows just the fix and enlists some of her animal pals to wake her in time for the big day. Unfortunately, Devine tale adds little to a frequently mined story line-see the more winsome Bear's First Christmas(reviewed above) and Karma Wilson's Bear Stays Up for Christmas(2004). Also unfortunately, Cassidy's illustrations fail to ignite the tale's bits of humor. Ages 4-7. (Oct.)

PreS-Gr 2-There is a significant subgenre of Christmas books revolving around a hibernating animal that can't or won't wake up for the festivities. This is a pleasant, if slight, addition to that body of literature. Here, the forest creatures promise to wake Hanna Bear. None is loud enough alone, but together they make a racket sufficient to rouse the slumbering bear, who marvels at sights she has never seen before, including a family celebrating the holiday in their snug cottage. The lively, textured illustrations add an element of humor that is not obvious in the text alone.-Virginia Walter, University of California, Los Angeles
