This book is about a bear and a mouse that are friends. The mouse starts saying how it is starting to get cold and the bear starts yawning and saying how he can feel that winter is now approaching.

Wake Me up in Spring is a delightful little book to read to young children. The interaction between two friends, a bear and a mouse, takes the sadness of being separated from a good friend and then joy of reuniting in a very simple and sweet way. You could also introduce the vocab word hibernate.

Bear is getting ready for winter but his dear friend Mouse doesn't want him to go! The book shows all of the things in winter that Bear will be missing as Mouse tries to get him to stay. The friendship between the mouse and the bear is heartbreakingly beautiful. Truly. It made me quite happy. Also, this is a book that learning readers will easily be able to read themselves which will add confidence.
This is a good book to read with first graders, perhaps in late February. It is easy enough that students could take turns reading a page or two out loud.
