It's a great book as a story telling excercise at Early Years, yet is also great for those in the later stages of Key Stage One learning to read, with alot of word asnd phrase repetition for those less confident.

They are also shaped like windows so that the reader is almost looking into this new world where the bears live. This timeless and well-loved story is exquisitely brought to life in a special Mini Pop-Up Classic edition, making it the perfect gift and a book to treasure, time and time again. The children will easily be able to understand the plot of the story and will look forward to finding out Big Bear's solution to curing the darkness so that Little Bear can finally go to sleep in one peace!

To experience the idea of the different types of light used for the little bear to try and get to sleep we give the children different sized lanterns and a flickering candle to look at. It's a good story that used a lot of repetition throughout with 'Little Bear', 'Big Bear', conversation about the darkness and sleeping.

This kid's book is so sweet because it deals with a fear most (if not all) of us have known before: the fear of the dark. I remember very well myself that I could never sleep when I was a child, not because of the dark but I just could not fall asleep.It’s a repetitive story so it would be ideal to read out to very young children and encourage them to join in with you. The book also made the children laugh and they identified the repetition which they enjoyed joining in with. 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. Cute book where Big Bear tries to get Little Bear to sleep but Little Bear is scared of the dark so big Bear must find a solution. The story is predictable but very comforting and the illustrations are cozy, expressive, and interesting.

Big Bear sees Little Bear in distress so he stops reading his book and gives Little Bear a small lantern to sleep with, however, it seems this isn't enough for Little Bear.However as they are so young and don’t yet have the cognitive ability to have this book read to them fully as a class they have the story read to them as a sensory story – which I have found fascinating. The children loved this story and so did I, it is about a little bear who cannot go to sleep because he is afraid of the dark.
