To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Written in 1996, somehow I only discovered this book this summer, and I’m here to tell you that it’s a winner! Written with simple text but gorgeously detailed illustrations, Every Autumn Comes the Bear tells the story of a bear preparing to hibernate. It’s informational and interesting yet reads like a story, making this perfect for a school unit on fall and/or hibernation. Ages 4-8.
The illustrations are beautiful. The story is easy to follow. I could see how this would be a great story to read at bedtime, because the bear hibernates at the end of the book. My only complaint is that my 13-month-old does not enjoy being read this story. I think this is because many of the colors in the illustrations are muted (because they seem to be done in watercolors) rather than bright (intense) colors. Therefore, I will save this book until my child is older.
