Wake Up, Sleepy Bear by Christine Morton-Shaw, Greg Shaw


Wake Up, Sleepy Bear by Christine Morton-Shaw, Greg Shaw

This is a gentle, rhyming story, full of beautiful baby animals and perfect for bedtime. One by one, all the animals in the forest wake up to find something very special has happened - they don't know what it is yet but they know it's very special. They each gather a gift and form a procession to find out what it is. Finally they reach a clearing and there they meet a beautiful, shy and wonderful newborn baby fawn.
