A Book of Five-minute Teddy Bear Tales A Treasury of Over 35 Bedtime Stories by Nicola Baxter

This is a treasury of over 35 bedtime stories. You can meet the bears of Bearborough: Albert, Barney, Bertram, Cleo, Emmeline, Martha, Max, Mr Minim and many more. In this cuddly collection of sleepytime stories, youngsters build snow bears and try to find the end of a rainbow, a daddy bear stretches the truth with his tall tales, clumsy Cousin Carlotta hosts a grand ball, Barney and his mother face flyaway laundry, and Uncle Hugo builds an extraordinary invention. It includes an useful index of themes that makes it easy for you to select just the right story. These tales are the perfect length for bedtime reading, with accessible language and pretty pictures that will keep small children entertained as you read together at the end of a busy day. The little town of Bearborough is home to as fine a bunch of bears as you are likely to meet. There are baby bears and granny bears, opera-singing bears and even trampolining bears! In these exciting and amusing adventures, Barney sees a ghost, his father attempts to paint a masterpiece, Bertram clears out his books - much to the delight of bookworm Barney - and Mr Minim gets unexpected help winding up the Town Hall Clock. Children and parents alike will enjoy reading about the troubles and triumphs of this town of teddy bears.
