Winter is here, and in winter, bears sleep. But how do you convince six not-so-sleepy bear cubs to go to bed? Mother Bear, of course, has found a way - with a cozy rhyme for each of them. Once again, beloved author Mem Fox enchants little ones - and their parents - with a tender bedtime story, irresistibly illustrated by Kerry Argent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't help but yawn... My daughter is 3 1/2 years old and loves this book. When reading it to her we can't help but yawn along with the little bears and it helps in settling her down for sleep. The pages are filled with warm and vivid colours and the wishes that Mother Bear dreams up for her cubs' sleep are wonderful. I highly recommend this book for bedtime or for anytime.
