" This book is super meta; a young boy chooses his favorite book and his mother reads it to him. We get to have both stories, the one in the book that they are reading and the one of the process of reading it and discussing it. It sounds mind blowing but wasn't really. " said.

" The cover illustration is great---in-your-face baby bear with a brilliant blue background. That's it folks. The rest is ho-hum, for me, at least. No storyline to speak of other than the overdone going-to-bed bit. The illustrations never make it to the same level of engaging as the cover. Pass. " said.

" Both a story of a bear's hibernation and a story of a boy sharing a book with his mother. Mom perfectly models how to share a book with her child - they snuggle up, they have a conversation, they identify things in the pictures, the boy turns pages. Lovely. " said.

" Another soothing and lyrical Kate Banks/Georg Hallensleben collaboration, this is a departure in that it's also metafiction, lushly evoking the experience of reading a familiar book while also being the familiar book. Yet it manages to keep this complex concept from overbalancing the simple and quiet intimacy of the book itself. " said.

" This is a story about a boy reading a book about a bear in hibernation. I think kids will find it intriguing in that it's like reading a story about themselves reading the same book. It is a reflection of the reader in a way. You'll be lulled to sleep with the quiet, lyrical text and soft, fuzzy illustration. It makes a great bedtime story. " said.

" A perfect bedtime book for kids. It mixes fantasy with reality and is gentle and by the end everyone is ready for sleep. The language is a bump up from simple phrasing - although it does require a good attention span so this is for more experienced kids at the read-aloud routine.The rating is mine, my kids were too sleepy and relaxed to care about star ratings. " said.

" This book works on many levels- bedtime book, science lesson, or model for would-be readers-to-children. Perhaps I've spent too long coaching beginning teachers, but I had to read this the second time to enjoy it from a child's view. The first time through I couldn't stop focusing on how well it portrays a read-aloud interaction with a child and a picture book. " said.

" A mother reads her child his favorite bedtime story: the story of a big black bear getting ready for his own deep winter slumber. Rhythmic text and vibrant paintings capture the tender interplay between a child's nighttime ritual and a bear's annual hibernation, making this the perfect pick for a long, snowy evening. " said.
