Can't You Sleep, Little Bear?

(12 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Walker Books

Little Bear just can't get to sleep because he is afraid of the dark. Big Bear is patient and brings bigger and bigger lanterns to keep away the darkness. Still Little Bear is afraid, so Big Bear takes him outside to see the moon and the stars. Finally, cuddled up in Big Bear's arms, Little Bear goes to sleep, allowing Big Bear to finish reading his book. This is a timeless classic, pictures and text beautifully complementing each other. Included in this edition is a CD with the story read by Martin Jarvis. This is a well-paced reading with a few effects to evoke a warm and friendly cave. Ideal for parents and children together or for the classroom listening corner.
