Synopsis

Just Like Tonight by Amber Stewart

Button has had a busy day playing with his older sisters and now it's time for Mummy and Daddy to put him to bed. Just as they pad quietly away, Button remembers the fallen log he clambered over during the afternoon. It looked a bit like a big bear asleep in the grass and now Button is worried that the tree-bear might lumber into his dreams and turn them into scary ones. He calls out and Daddy comes back to comfort Button. Daddy always knows what to do in these situations - he tells Button the lovely, familiar story of the day he was born. Daddy remembers fondly all the happy details of the day that Button came into the world and these always do just the trick in helping Button to forget about anything that might be making him anxious at bedtime. The illustrations from Layn Marlow are beautiful - Button is the most adorable chocolate-brown bear cub you are ever likely to meet - and the softness of the illustrations perfectly captures the mood of this gentle bedtime story.

Reviews

[Praise for Little by Little, also by Amber Stewart and Layn Marlow]: 'Sometimes you pick up a book and you just know that you're going to love it-and this is one of those books. The illustrations are a delight with muted colours capturing the spring countryside and the animals to perfection. The text is a delight to read aloud. It's simple and direct but it expresses exactly how Scramble feels. The book is highly recommended. Bookbag
