#blogbookaday: Honey

8 Jul

Honey.jpgSummary:  “Bear is ravenous when he wakes up from his winter sleep and has one thing on his mind: honey! Alas, it is too soon for honey, so Bear tries hard to be patient. The world around him is waking up, too, and he soon remembers all the other things he loves, like warm grass, berries, and rain. He’s almost content, until, one day, he hears a welcome buzzing sound . . . and finally it is time for Bear to delight in the thing he relishes above all others–and it is as warm, golden, sweet, and good as he remembered.” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: Bear wakes up from a long winter’s sleep and remembers honey, but it is too soon for honey, so he spends his days exploring and enjoying summer until finally it’s time for honey and it’s a good as he remembered it to be!

Personal Reaction: The author uses amazing, descriptive words and similes to describe the honey, which makes this a great read aloud for an English class looking ant similes and metaphors, but it also makes a great read aloud for summer time – hot days, playing in a stream, berry picking and summer storms are all experienced in the story. Pair this story with Leaves by the same author for an exploration of the seasons.

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!
