A Bear Hug at Bedtime

Publisher: Child’s Play

Review

A simple home and garden can offer a myriad of opportunities for imaginative family play. Gran becomes a stripy tiger in the garden, a sibling becomes a lobster in the bath and Daddy becomes a hungry bear at bedtime. Thankfully, he’s a bear who gives great bedtime hugs.

This is a delightful picture book with appealing illustrations and a gentle story about the power of the imagination and the fun of play. Featuring a highly inclusive cast of characters, including an extended, mixed race family and a protagonist who uses a hearing aid.
