Synopsis

Bedtime For Bear by Brett Helquist

Wintertime is here, and that means it is bedtime for Bear. But Bear's friends don't think so. They want Bear to come and play outside in the snow. Bear can hear his friends calling. He hears them laughing and playing. Bear can't sleep. But it's bedtime! What is a bear to do?

Reviews

Satisfying. Helquist's compositions are lovely with just the right quirky details to catch viewers

's read-aloud before naptime. -- School Library Journal (starred review) Helquist's sumptuous paintings and expansive sense of visual comedy make this tale a keeper. Readers will want to jump right into these pages and join in the fun. Bonus: with the line It's bedtime for bears, Helquist has coined a bedtime call-to-arms with staying power. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) Praise for A Christmas Carol: The beloved Christmas classic is skillfully adapted for this simplified introduction to the tale. Helquist's artistic style is an excellent match for the Dickensian world of mysterious spirits and spooky graveyards. -- Kirkus Reviews With pleasing touches of detail, humor and a few frightful strokes...the eye-catching art makes a strong pairing to the accessible abridgment of Dickens's text.
