Julia Eccleshare's Book of the Month August 2016 Perfect for the end of every day, award-winning Chris Haughton captures the soothing time as the sun goes down and all the animals begin to fall into a deep sleep….All except Little Bear who is wide awake despite the yawning and sighing of all those around him. When even Little Bear stretches a great big stretch and yawns a great big yawn it really is goodnight for everyone. ~ Julia Eccleshare
Julia Eccleshare's Picks of the Month for August 2016
From the multi award-winning picture book maker of A Bit Lost and Shh! We Have a Plan, comes the ultimate bedtime book. A series of exquisitely coloured cut pages of increasing size introduce woodland families - bears, deer, rabbits and teeny, tiny mice - who are all beginning to feel really ...rather ...tired ...YAWN! Dear me, says Great Big Bear, it must be time for bed! But Little Bear is certainly not sleepy - he's wide awake! (For now...)
With sublime, starry night time scenes and an infectious yawny 'Good night' refrain, Chris Haughton creates a lulling bedtime read, perfect for parents and children to share together.

Cut pages are cleverly used to take the reader on a journey through the woods, while repetitive, sleepy actions and a well-paced text make this a pleasure to read aloud. The Bookseller
