Synopsis

Can't You Sleep, Little Bear by Martin Waddell, Barbara Firth

I don't like the dark, said Little Bear. What dark? said Big Bear. The dark all around us, said Little Bear. In this tender account of a sleepless night in the bear cave, Big Bear sets out with all his patience and understanding to show Little Bear that the dark is nothing to be afraid of. When all the lanterns in the cave aren't enough to quell Little Bear's troubled emotions, Big Bear offers--in a final loving gesture--nothing less than the bright yellow moon and the twinkling stars! More comforting than even the best of lullabies, this bedtime story is destined to become a classic. From the Hardcover edition.
