Otters Under Water was called "first-rate natural history for the youngest" by Kirkus Reviews (pointer review), and School Library Journal wrote that in it "each of his creatures exhibits a distinct individualism." Every Autumn Comes the Bear was called "vibrant, translucent and strikingly composed" by Publishers Weekly, and Booklist wrote "Arnosky's radiant pictures have a dazzling sense of pattern and composition . . . and a sense of mystery. A beautiful, imaginative, and informative approach."

Every autumn a bear shows up behind the farm, and goes through a series of routines before finding a den among the hilltop boulders where he sleeps all winter long.

Summary: Every year during the autumn months, a bear comes and walks through the woods. He walks and he walks, clawing at trees and hearing the sounds of the woods until he finds a den and sleeps till winter is over. Critique: This informational book about bears tells about the journey a bear takes before he snuggles into a cave for the winter. The information is all true facts about the forest and the things a bear might experience or do before he sleeps. The illustrations in this story help build the reader¿s understanding and to be able to see first hand what a bear might see. Teacher Use: A teacher could use this book with a younger class that might be doing a unit on bears or learning about hibernation. The class would learn about what a bear might do before he hibernates and what then maybe research what other animals do during winter or if any other animals also hibernate during this season. Media: Oil paints
