Baby Bear doesn't want to go to sleep in the cave. He has a litany of complaints/stalling tactics, including needing water, needing food, and needing to see the moon. Ingenious (and patient!) mother bear satisfies each request, and eventually mother bear and baby bear fall asleep happily.
A good offering from Frank Asch. Illustrations are bold and blocky, with nothing terribly intricate or cluttered about them. Text is easy to understand, with just a sentence or two on each page. Great for 2- and 3-year olds, maybe a solid bedtime book for 4- and 5-year olds as well.
I've used this as a bedtime book with my 2-year old many times, and he seems to like it quite a bit, though it's not his favorite.
Be sure to also check out Frank Asch's _Goodbye House_, which I think is his best book.
I must admit that I love this book. The little one waking you up because he or she can’t sleep – doesn’t that just sound too familiar? I really enjoyed the love that Mother Bear shows, and the relationship between the mother and baby bears (mind you, I wouldn’t have minded if there was a Father Bear, but you can’t have everything, I suppose). My daughter loves the cute story, which is a real plus.
The illustration work is very good, with lots of big, colorful pictures for the young reader (er, readee?). My daughter and I both highly recommend this book.
