Reviews - What do customers think about DK Readers: A Bed For Winter (Level 1: Beginning to Read)?

A real nature story book!  Oct 2, 2007
This is a fun and educational early reader that children will want to read again and again. A little dormouse is searching for a safe and warm place to spend the winter, and her search lets the reader explore the kinds of homes used by other animals. A cute squirrel, a toad, a huge bear, bunnies, etc., all have a place to bed down. At last, the mouse finds the perfect place!

A Bed For Winter has wonderful photos of animals and a picture word list for review. This book is a valuable teaching tool.
Depite Bear on the cover, this is the story of a Dormouse  Mar 31, 2005
Don't be fooled by the bear on the cover--this book is not about a bear getting ready for winter hibernation, though it does mention that in passing.

This is the story of a Dormouse looking for a place to spend the winter. She looks in on many other animals getting their animal homes ready for the changing season (burrows and nests and such--a true to life story, not a fantasy tale such as "Peter Rabbit") and has a close encounter with a snake as a cold rain closes in.

Not quite as engaging as some of the other titles in the DK Level 1 Readers ("Duckling Days" and "Born to be a Butterfly" come to mind in the animal life category), but still enjoyed. As with others it has words featured in pictures within pictures, and these words also make it into a one-page picture dictionary at the end of the book.

A note to the adults making this purchase on the behalf of beginning readers: DK Level 1 Readers are more complex than most other Level 1 readers, featuring multi-syllable words ("dormouse", for example) and complex sentences common to most series' Level 2.
