“Sleep, Big Bear, Sleep!” is the story of brown bear who is hard of hearing. It is winter time and old man winter keeps telling the bear to go to sleep, but since his hearing is so bad the bear thinks he has heard a different command.
The rhyming style of this book was enjoyable, and didn’t hinder the story at all. And the illustrations are perfect; they are quite amusing and cartoonish while still keeping a natural feel. This book can be used with children as a good night story, or as an introduction to bear hibernation.
