Even if he's seen the DVD that night, though, there's nothing like a bedtime story from mum - and this book has fast become one of his very favourites. is an immensely satisfying book, depicting both Little Bear's fears, and Big Bear's compassion and patience, with sympathy. The illustrations are cute, but otherwise, way too repetitive to not be boring, both my 5 yr old and preschoolers had a hard time staying engaged in this story. This book does wonders for dispelling the fear of the dark as well as for encouraging the patience of parents everywhere. Cute book where Big Bear tries to get Little Bear to sleep but Little Bear is scared of the dark so big Bear must find a solution.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. It's a great book as a story telling excercise at Early Years, yet is also great for those in the later stages of Key Stage One learning to read, with alot of word asnd phrase repetition for those less confident.

After reading the story this way it has really highlighted that sensory stories are a real innovative way of allowing children who are at the very early stages of reading to explore literacy and it’s an approach that I will definitely use again especially if working in an early years setting as well as in a special needs school.

I also used this book to introduce the children to questions and how we know what they are and when someone is asking a question. I also read this book with children when I worked in a pre-nursery and during SBT with the younger children. This kid's book is so sweet because it deals with a fear most (if not all) of us have known before: the fear of the dark. He's frightened of the dark, the dark all around, which not even Big Bear's largest lantern can light up. They are also shaped like windows so that the reader is almost looking into this new world where the bears live.It also, in my opinion, brings with it a sense of reassurance to young children as a fear of the dark is quite common at a young age. This story depicts patience and kindness on the part of big bear, where he goes to great lengths to help little bear realise that the dark is nothing to be afraid of. The children loved this story and so did I, it is about a little bear who cannot go to sleep because he is afraid of the dark.

From the opening line common to all the "Little Bear" stories, through Little Bear's fear of the dark and Big Bear's reassurance and care, to the final moments where Big Bear says he's brought Little Bear "the bright yellow moon, and all the stars" to light the darkness. The book also contains a lot of inverted commas so it could be used as an example for teaching those in grammar. A cute idea, but falls short, since it's way too wordy for the younger crowd, even though the concept is geared toward them.Described as ‘the most perfect children’s book ever written’, this is a beautiful 25th anniversary edition of the Kate Greenaway-winning story of Little Bear, who just can’t sleep. The final episode, in which Little Bear has fallen asleep in Big Bear's arms, and Big Bear (finally!

It was relatable to us on so many levels; a little baby bear being afraid of the dark/the unknown and the big bear trying to help by shedding some light on the situation. Little Bear still tosses and turns so Big Bear has to stop reading his book again to get him some more light.

We then introduce the idea that it’s night time so we turn off the classroom lights, give them hot chocolate to taste and lastly put a black dark sheet across their eyes so that they really understand that it’s bedtime for the bears. Unable to get to sleep, Little Bear tosses and turns, and although Big Bear continually interrupts his reading (what a father! Celebrate 25 years of Big Bear, Little Bear and their cosy cave in this gorgeous anniversary edition of a classic bedtime favourite.
