I love this book Jun 11, 2008
When the snows began to fall, Mother Bear led Baby Bear into a cave. But, things are so different in here that Baby Bear just can't seem to fall asleep. And so, Mother Bear does everything she can to make him feel right. But, OH!, will Baby Bear ever fall asleep?
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.
very sweet story Feb 25, 2006
My 2 yr old loves this and so do I. A great story for snuggle time.
Good Night, Baby Bear Nov 5, 2004
The task of getting baby bear into a cave for the winter to hibernate requires patience on the part of Mother Bear. This is accurately illustrated with the sponge acrylic brushings in the background adding to the softness of the pages. The reader feels the closeness of the bears when viewing their position as well as noticing the loving look in the eyes of Mother Bear.
The snow was falling outside the first evening they tried to settle into the cave where they would sleep for many months. Baby Bear was uncomfortable in these surroundings having always slept under the sky. It seems that Baby Bear wanted to continue with his customary snack before bed even though there were no snacks to be found in the cave.
Mother Bear made the journey outside into the snow to a nearby tree for an apple. Before Baby Bear even finished the apple Mother Bear was fast asleep. Baby Bear tossed and turned trying to get into a comfortable sleeping position, but nothing worked. With a poke to Mother Bear who managed to open one eye to hear the request for a drink from Baby Bear.
My seven year-old enjoyed reading Good Night, Baby Bear and wonders each and every time what will happen to the snow once it has melted. I like to show my son the similarity between the Baby Bear and his nightly requests for water. The only thing missing as far as my son was concerned was a teddy bear for the Baby Bear to cuddle for his long slumber.
Now with their paws outstretched with their bodies side by side they went quickly off to sleep. My seven year-old enjoyed reading Good Night, Baby Bear and wonders each and every time what will happen to the snow once it has melted. I like to show my son the similarity between the Baby Bear and his nightly requests for water. The only thing missing as far as my son was concerned was a teddy bear for the Baby Bear to cuddle for his long slumber.
The Mother Bear shows patience and understanding while tending to the requests of the Baby Bear. The illustrations offer the sense of joy and love among the bears' as the cave seems inviting and warm. The Mother Bear comes through for her cub and puts his fears to rest upon entrance to the cave and helps him cope in an unfamiliar setting.
very sweet "I love you" sort of book Feb 26, 2004
My sons and I love this book right before bed. It's quiet and simple to read and look at. We like to giggle at the things that Baby Bear asks for (since the boys do much the same) and talk about how Mommy Bear always helps them. We share kisses at the end and they seem very responsive to the loving exchange between Mommy and Baby. This is a great book for reading between moms and kids.
toddler favorite! Oct 11, 2002
My son and I read this almost every night. The relationship between the mother and baby bear is so sweet and when baby bear gives his Mom a kiss on the nose at the end, my son does the same! Very sweet book with simple, pretty illustrations. This is one of our favorites.
