Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

It's Bear versus the wind in this autumnal story. When Bear sneezes, he mistakenly believes that he is responsible for blowing the leaves off a tree. "Bear, can't you see?/ The leaves flew down because of me," says the billowing wind, whose gusts suggest an opera singer belting out a solo. "Wind, it wasn't you," Bear later insists, "the geese flew away when I sneezed/ Achoo!" Hillenbrand's sweeping mixed-media spreads should stir up anticipation for apple-picking season, though the angry, tempestuous wind has the potential to frighten some younger readers. Ages 4–8.

Review by School Library Journal Reviews

PreS-K—Bumbling Big Bear is back in another misadventure. In this autumn-themed installment, he believes that his sneezes are causing leaves and apples to drop from trees and geese to migrate. The wind tries to convince him otherwise, as she knows she is the real source of these events. Finally, with a "deep breath" and a "whirling, twirling mighty shout," Autumn Breeze shows Big Bear her powers. The large, mixed-media illustrations are lively and appealing, and readers will find humor in the scene in which Big Bear is trying to tack all of the fallen leaves back onto branches. This title will appeal to young children, especially where Big Bear has a fan base.—Jasmine L. Precopio, Fox Chapel Area School District, Pittsburgh, PA [Page 133]. (c) Copyright 2011.

Review by Publisher Summary 2

It’s autumn, and Big Bear thinks that his sneezes are causing the leaves and the apples to fall from the trees and the geese to fly away…until the wind convinces him otherwise. Cozy illustrations rendered in pencil and mixed media add warmth and humor to a story that children will love.
