Synopsis

Are You Sure, Mother Bear? by Amy Hest

Will everything I love still be there when I wake? Mother Bear's absolute reassurance - and an unexpected outing - enables a little cub to sleep in a masterful bedtime story. From author Amy Hest and artist Lauren Tobia comes a warm and touching story that is sure to comfort all little bears before bedtime. On the first night of winter, Little Miss Bear will not go to sleep. She simply refuses. Winter is for sleeping, Mother Bear tells her. All bears sleep, all winter long. But all winter long is much too long for Little Miss Bear. She is going to miss her stars and her moon, and she is going to miss rolling on her hills. Most of all, she is going to miss her Mother Bear. Can Mother Bear reassure her that they will all be there waiting for her when she wakes in the spring?

Reviews

Full of feel-good warmth and reassurance, this is a lovely book to share with sleepy littles, who will enjoy both the snuggly indoor scenes and the beautiful outside woody, snowy landscapes. Red Reading Hub
