Item Description...
This Level 1 book is appropriate for children who are just beginning to read.

A Bed for the Winter is the harrowing story of a little dormouse and his frantic search for a safe place to hibernate. For children who are just beginning to read and who have a limited vocabulary, these 32-page Level 1 books-about everything from tadpoles to puppies-use word repetition and simple sentences to convey meaning. Picture dictionary boxes with word labels "show" the meanings of words. These books contain between 400 and 450 words each, and they are 80 percent pictures and 20 percent text. The Dorling Kindersley Readers combine an enticing visual layout with high-interest, easy-to-read stories to captivate and delight young bookworms who are just getting started. Written by leading children's authors and compiled in consultation with literacy experts, these engaging books build reader confidence along with a lifelong appreciation for nonfiction, classic stories, and biographies. There is a DK Reader to interest every child at every level, from preschool to grade 4.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
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.
