The Bears on Hemlock MountainAre there bears on Hemlock Mountain on Hemlock PDF #180 One boy is about to find out in this classic talePeople have always told. I'm trying to figure out why this won a 1953 Newbery Honor At first I thought that 1952 must have been a very unexceptional year for children's literature Then I looked at the winners Charlotte's Web was also an Honor that year along with three others losing out to Secret of the Andes by Ann Nolan Clark WHAT THE HECK Bears on Hemlock Mountain received the same award as Charlotte Wilbur Unthinkable What was this Newbery Committee thinking How could any other children's book of that year have been better than Charlotte's Web It couldn't The EndSo back to the book Jonathan lives on Hemlock Mountain His entire life he has been assured by a little chant that there are no bears on Hemlock Mountain One day he is sent over the mountain by his mother to borrow a big iron pot from his aunt Jonathan bravely makes the trip muttering to himself the chant about no bears just for reassurance Turns out the little chant is wrong There are bears on Hemlock Mountain While weeding our library I came across this little chapter book It was very short had lots of blocky black and blue illustrations and the silver Newbery medal on the front It had not been checked out once in the last five years Clearly my kids weren't interested So I weeded it but kept it to read myself There's not much to it It's based on a Pennsylvania tall tale and Dalgliesh fleshed it out to make it longer I enjoyed the illusrations and the historical aspects are undoubtedly correct but for me this is nowhere near a Newbery Honor On a uirky note the chant bothered me because I could not discern a steady rhythmTHERE ARE NO BEARS ON HEMLOCK MOUNTAIN NO BEARS AT ALL OF COURSE THERE ARE NO BEARS ON HEMLOCK MOUNTAIN NO BEARS NO BEARS NO BEARS NO BEARS AT ALLLooks simple yes Every time I thought I had the rhythm down though the wording changed Kinda drove me just a little nuts

Jonathan that there are no bears on Hemlock Mountain no bears at all So he isn’t afraid to set out alone over the mountain Bu. I loved the woodcut illustrations in this book I can see how it would be perfect for kids that are just starting to read longer books It's a Newberry Honor book Other reviewers seem to think this story is shallow and lame I think that the story The Bears on Hemlock Mountain reads like an oral tradition or folk tale There is repetition which I can see children delighting in memorizing and repeating with their parents or teacher during a read aloud This book was written in 1952 but harks back to an even earlier part of America's history It has a very rural feel to it I like that Jonathan has a large family and is kind to animals I don't think the ending is that rough but maybe since I'm from Alaska One reviewer implied that they thought Jonathan's family was going to huntkill the bears but I didn't get that impression I LOVE the woodcuts in this book The newish cover does nothing for the great illustrations in this little book
