Can't You Sleep Little Bear?
by Martin Waddell & Barbara Firth


This warm, charming look at a small bear's fear of the dark is right on target for preschools. Big Bear's compassion for his small charge is most evident in his loving facial expressions & in the warmth of full-page watercolour & soft pencil illustrations

Little Bear is the epitome of every child, persistently (but endearingly) pestering for a little more attention & one last hug. The soft banter between the two characters, combined with a touch of repetitive phrasing, add to the book's strong child appeal

Once referred to by the Sunday Times of London as, "the most perfect children's book ever written or illustrated". High praise that is not amiss

It recognises the importance of giving toddlers' fears a voice, but also understands the necessity of strong adults in a child's life

As a primary school teacher this book is in my top 2 for reading aloud to my students. They enjoy the illustrations & watching Little Bear "try to go to sleep", while gradually revealing quite a fear of the dark, which some of them identify with

One of my children's favourites
