Another book we dig about hibernation is the ever popular Bear Snores On by Karma Wilson:
We also did a Bear Snores On craft that you may have seen across the web. While others used wiggle eyes on their bear's, we wanted our bears to be "snoring" so we made their eyes shut and since we are such glitter fans, we made their eyelashes using gold. I tried to draw the snout but it kind of looks funny, but hey....my babes DIG him:
Bear Snores On by Karma Wilson
Here is a cave, (make arch with one hand)
Inside is a bear. (using other hand, put one finger in cave)
Now he comes out, (pull finger out)
To get some fresh air.
He stays out all summer,
In sunshine and heat. (fan face with hand)
He hunts in the forest, (crawling motion with hands)
For berries to eat. (fingers to mouth)
When snow starts to fall, (wiggle fingers like snow falling)
He hurries inside.
His warm little cave, (make arch with hand again)
And there he will hide.(put your finger inside)
Snow covers the cave,
Like a fluffy white rug.
Inside the bear sleeps, (hands to side of head like sleeping)
All cozy and snug.
