About this deal

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. Described as ‘the most perfect children’s book ever written’, this is a beautiful 25th anniversary edition of the Kate Greenaway-winning story of Little Bear, who just can’t sleep. I also used this book to introduce the children to questions and how we know what they are and when someone is asking a question. It's a good story that used a lot of repetition throughout with 'Little Bear', 'Big Bear', conversation about the darkness and sleeping. Le pagine sono belle e resistenti, anche quelle popup, che in alcuni altri libri invece sembrano essere fragili.

It is an excellent story to use expression when being told, making it an excellent book to engage the child whom it is being read to( eg. My son loves to cuddle up with me under a blanket to share a special moment watching the story before bedtime. It also, in my opinion, brings with it a sense of reassurance to young children as a fear of the dark is quite common at a young age.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 is illustated in a very complimentary way, with beatiful pictures, again, great for engaging a child.

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. It’s such a lovely story and the way that my children understand it is to actual experience the key features of the book for themselves. I found it a book that was good to relax the children and one to read them when they are not feeling very brave themselves. He's only young but likes to look at the pictures and it's a good length story to help him get used to hearing people read. For example we have two toy bears that we introduce to them at the beginning of the story who they get to cuddle and get a sense of their two sizes (bigger for big bear etc…), we then give them each a small teddy bear who they cuddle up in a blanket.I will have this on display for sure; if I can't find other things to use, then I will opt to read this one. My severe learning difficulties nursery class are reading the book as part of their literacy lessons which they absolutely love.
