Outstanding, Toddler, Preschool, Bears, Parents, Emotions, Bedtime
Many parents and children can relate to bedtime rituals—the special time spent wrapping up the day and preparing for a good night’s rest. This book shows the loving sequence of events between Mama Bear and Little bear, starting with a simple wave. “When you’ve had a fun day and you’re ready for bed, this is the wave … and the squeeze of the hand … that led to the touch … that led to the smile…” This continues on until it finally leads to a tender kiss good night.
