This Big Book edition is perfect for sharing with groups of young children.
Winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal and the Smarties Prize for Children's Books, this luscious- as-chocolate tale of the little bear who just can't go to sleep should find a place on every pre-school bookshelf.
While Big Bear tries to read his Bear Book, Little Bear tries to sleep, but can't. He's scared of the dark. So Big Bear keeps bringing him progressively bigger lanterns. But nothing seems to work, until he leads Little Bear out of the Bear Cave into the dark nights.
NB. There is some debate as to whether Little Bear was really trying very hard to get to sleep. Some of the illustrations seem to show him bouncing around rather a lot. You decide. (Ages 2 to 5)--Lisa Gee
A regular size edition is also available.
