Moon Bear

Moon Bear. Brenda Z. Guiberson. Illustrated by Ed Young. 2010. May 2010. Henry Holt. 40 pages.
Who blinks in the sunlight that peeks through the Himalayas?

Sleepy moon bear,
waking up
from a long winter snooze.
I liked this one. I liked the question and answer format. I liked the way the book progresses through all four seasons. I liked learning more about Asiatic black bears. (I thought the format was very reader-friendly.) And I thought the illustrations were very expressive. Some were quite striking!
