If you liked the other Little Bear/Big Bear books by Martin Waddell, you will love this one too! It's so sweet to read! Little Bear is adventurous,but stays close to Big Bear and asks that he "watch". Big Bear is encouraging and always supporting. When Little Bear slips, Big Bear picks him up and comforts him, but continues to be encouraging. It's a wonderful story of a parent's love- never-ending and always present.

"Once there were two bears, Big Bear and Little Bear. Big Bear is the big bear and Little Bear is the little bear."
Each of these Little Bear books by Martin Waddell opens in this delightfully familiar way. My two-year-old cozies in right beside me in anticipation of the beginning of one of these books (because once you read one, you have to read them all).
In "Good Job, Little Bear", Big Bear encourages Little Bear in all his exploring and yet, when Little Bear makes a mistep, Big Bear is there to help, support, and reassure... Little Bear is able to regain his confidence with the help of Big Bear's sensitive parenting (because, even though he looks like a big bear, he really is just a very good parent).
"Good Job, Little Bear" is a book that will remain behind on my bookshelves as my son grows. In the fine tradition of books that reassure about parental love, Waddell has captured the sentiments of parents around the world. The last line of the book, "I'll be there when you need me... always" gave me a catch in my throat and, I have to admit, a tear in my eye.

This is a really good book for young kids. My 3 year old daughter loves it and laughs hysterically when Little Bear falls in the water. And it has a really sweet, comforting ending which is great right before bed. I also think it is a good length for little ones, not too wordy. I think little ones can really identify with Little Bear and the things he does in this one. Cute book!

This would have to be my favourite of all the Little Bear, Big Bear stories. My three year old loved hearing about the adventurous little bear, and the relationship between the two bears is so lovingly drawn. I would definitely recommend this book.

When I first read this book, I was taken back to my childhood. I explored the woods, the streams and anywhere else my Mom said I could go! This seems to be a thing of the past. This book brings that back. Although, the first time I read it, it scared me somewhat because as a parent in today's world we are taught to fear everything. Big Bear is with Little Bear for his exploring and that made me feel better. Little Bear falls off a rock into the water and Big Bear uses that as an opportunity to teach Little Bear to pick himself up and move on. I love the messages in this book. Martin Waddell has a very simplistic way of sending messages and I love this for the younger kids. As a children's author, I have come to know that little children take everything you say quite literally. I loved reading this over and over to my children and look forward to reading it to my Grandchildren. Excellent story and beautiful illustrations.

I love all of Martin's books. They are written with such a calm cadence and a wink of humor. His books were the perfect bedtime story for my youngest child. I have them all and recommended that our local library purchase the ones they were missing. These are keepers. I will save them for my grandchildren.

After reading all of the little bear books, I would have to say that this is one of my two year olds favorite book. My son loves the little bear/big bear adventure stories.( Please write more) I would highly recommend this book to parents, teachers and fellow librarians.

I enjoy these character and the lovely artwork. Can't You SLeep, Little Bear? is a powerful story told in a simple fun way. Good Job, Little Bear is more of fun but no deeper subtle meaning in this one a more typical children's tale I'm afraid.

Simply a sweet book for toddlers and preschoolers. My daughter likes it, however her favorite is Big Bear and little Bear by the same author. It is one of our go to books at bedtime when she is very sleepy. Works like a charm.

The Big Bear, Little Bear books are a great series for toddlers and the issue of fear.
The stories are great for both toddler and parent.
The kids definitely get it, the parent make take a reading or two.
