About this deal

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. Honestly I think I enjoyed this more than the kids with how Big Bear wants to get back to his book but he patiently puts Little Bear to bed each time. The second bedtime book from Northern Irish author Martin Waddell, after the equally delightful Owl Babies, that I have read, Can't You Sleep, Little Bear? He's frightened of the dark, the dark all around, which not even Big Bear's largest lantern can light up.

It’s all about the little bear not being able to sleep as he is scared ‘of the dark all around them’ and the big bear trying different ways to light up his room to reassure little bear that there is no need to be afraid of the dark, which only works when he finds the perfect way to comfort his fears, outside, in front of the moon which is the biggest light of them all.Big Bear learns that it's better to deal with a problem head on rather than ignore it by coming up with tiny or large remedies that will not last.

This is a story about a little bear that is afraid of the dark, yet overcomes this fear with the help of Big Bear, a portrayal similar to parent and child and hence easy to relate to the comfort sought and the comfort given. Big Bear and Little Bear - "Big Bear is the big bear, and Little Bear is the little bear," the narrator informs us, in one of those dead-pan asides that I always find irresistibly hilarious - settle in for the night in this charming bedtime story about being afraid of the dark. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.Big Bear doesn't know what to do, there is dark everywhere, how is Big Bear supposed to light up all the dark at night-time? In ogni caso io l'ho preso semplicemente perchè il piccolo orso ha lo stesso problema di mia figlia. Barbara Firth's illustrations, of course, are stunning and pitched just right for such a soothing tale. is an immensely satisfying book, depicting both Little Bear's fears, and Big Bear's compassion and patience, with sympathy. The book also made the children laugh and they identified the repetition which they enjoyed joining in with.
