    A fun, exciting reading experience

    The snow-covered evergreens and hardwoods show no sign of animal life because "It is winter." There are no animals in sight because many of them hibernate. We can see bats hanging inside a cave and a squirrel curled up on the underside of a log. When animals hibernate, it is as if they are in "a deep sleep." This is part of their life cycle and they "hibernate to survive the winter." It's not easy to find food in the wintertime because the "snow hides plants and other food." Bears will sleep in dens during the winter only to "wake up and come out" in the spring. A few types of snakes hibernate, and "most ground squirrels" do. In this book the young student can read about and see photographs of animals who are hibernating and they will learn about the cycle.

    This book provides an excellent way to introduce the young student to animals and hibernation science. The emergent to early fluent readers will benefit from the large print and the vibrant photographs accompanying the text. Difficult words such as "hibernating" are highlighted in bold throughout the text and explained in the glossary. Each page has a single sentence with the exception of a one page discussion about hibernation at the end. This can be read aloud to a classroom or tackled by the early fluent or confident reader.

    In the back of the book there is an index, a glossary, and some interesting "Fun Facts." A typical example is similar to this: "Here are some other animals that hibernate-chipmunks, hamsters, skunks, bats, prairie dogs, frogs, lizards, snakes, turtles, and some insects like bees and ladybugs." This is one in a series of six in the Discovering Nature's Cycles, an interesting nonfiction series you may wish to add to your homeschool or classroom shelves!

    Quill says: This series will provide a fun, exciting reading experience for young students who are interested in animals in the wild!
