Storytime Standouts writes about When the Earth Wakes, exploring the seasonsWhen the Earth Wakes – written and illustrated by Ani Rucki


A lovely book for very young children, When the Earth Wakes invites readers to observe as spring arrives, the earth is awakened and a mother bear stretches with her young cub. We watch the snow melt and the two bears frolic in the sunshine and warm breeze. Before long it is summertime; butterflies, salmon, thunderstorms and starry nights change the natural landscape once again. When leaves begin to change and blueberries ripen, the two bears know it is time to prepare for winter. A lovely, gentle circular story about the changing seasons and our beautiful earth.

Striking coloured pencil illustrations make When the Earth Wakes well-suited to a read aloud setting.
