Features an audio read-along! It’s time for Big Brown Bear to tuck all four little bears into their beds. Then he’s ready to climb into his own bed and turn out the light. Five warm beds, holding five sleepy bears, until a sound goes whoosh in the middle of the night, and all the bears wake up in a fright. Will they ever get back into bed? Luckily, Big Brown Bear knows just what to do! A fun, rhyming read-aloud that parents will love and tired little cubs will be happy to snuggle up with.
The four small bears from Bears on Chairs demonstrate their distinctive personalities as they climb into bed: "Fuzzy whirls in/ like a circus bear./ She swirls into bed/ with a twirly flair!" But when they hear a sound in the night, all four bears wake up and hop into Big Brown Bear's bed. Walker's smudgy acrylic bears pair well with Parenteau's use of repetition and phrases that rhyme with "bear," making for a soothing reading primer and cozy bedtime story. Ages 2 5.
