Winter is here, and in winter, bears sleep. But how do you convince six not-so-sleepy bear cubs to go to bed? Mother Bear, of course, has found a way--with a cozy rhyme for each of them. Once again, beloved author Mem Fox enchants little ones--and their parents--with a tender bedtime story, irresistibly illustrated by Kerry Argent.

Baker & Taylor
As Mother Bear tries to prepare for a long winter's rest, her excitable cubs refuse to cooperate, thus she recites each of them a gentle poem where, one by one, they begin to fall fast asleep. 50,000 first printing.

It is wintertime and time for Mama bear and her cubs to hibernate. She tells each one of her cubs a story to help them sleep. Terrific illustrations in this book!
