Spring Awakening

Shh! Bears Sleeping, by David Martin, illustrated by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher; Viking, $16.99, 32 pages, ages 1-4.

Here’s another charming picture-book about springtime and bears. Veteran author David Martin’s gentle rhymes explain the seasonal sleeping habits of bears, while Johnson and Fancher’s oil-paintings of a mama bear and her cubs are at once cozy and realistic, and author’s notes give further detail on these magnificent creatures.
