Award-winning picture book creator, Michael Foreman celebrates the love between a father and child in this endearing bedtime story from this twice Kate Greenaway Medal Winner. Little Bear takes dad on a journey around all his favourite things and adventures and tells his dad that he loves him more than all the toys in his toy box, more than all the flowers of summer and the snowflakes in winter as well as all the grains of sand on the beach. A wonderfully heart-warming tale that little bears will go back to time and time again with or without their dad!
Little Bear doesn't want to go to sleep, so he tries everything he can think of to distract his father, and in the end it's an exhausted dad who falls asleep!
