Children's Book Review: Hibernation Station
Written by: Michelle Meadows
Illustrated by: Kurt Cyrus
Published by: Simon & Schuster, 2010
Everybody at the station! It’s time for winter hibernation! The sweet rhyming text of this book will calm even the most rambunctious kids and have them dreaming about what it’s like to hibernate. Young readers will be soothed and delighted as this story introduces them to different types of hibernating animals. The creatures on the train are preparing to snuggle into sleep, although with a passenger list that includes chipmunks, bears, snakes, hedgehogs, groundhogs, frogs, turtles, mice, bats, and more, there’s a lot of noise! Will the hibernating critters ever get to sleep? Take a trip to Hibernation Station to find out!
* As the weather turns colder animals begin to hibernate. This is a cute story told in rhyme about animals preparing for this ritual. The different animals are all dressed in their pajamas, which had my kids laughing out loud! Mr. Conductor Bear makes sure all the animals are comfortable and ready to sleep. This is written by Michelle Meadows, the same author who wrote Traffic Pups, which I recently reviewed.
Family Rating: 1 1/2 thumbs up.
