The story is predictable but very comforting and the illustrations are cozy, expressive, and interesting. 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. 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. 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.

It's a good story that used a lot of repetition throughout with 'Little Bear', 'Big Bear', conversation about the darkness and sleeping. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. A bestselling story which won the Kate Greenaway Medal for illustration, and has sold more than 7 million copies worldwide. From the opening line common to all the "Little Bear" stories, through Little Bear's fear of the dark and Big Bear's reassurance and care, to the final moments where Big Bear says he's brought Little Bear "the bright yellow moon, and all the stars" to light the darkness. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.Little Bear still tosses and turns so Big Bear has to stop reading his book again to get him some more light. I recently bought this for a friend who is expecting, I hadn't noticed it was a 'pop up' version, so was pleasantly surprised. The final episode, in which Little Bear has fallen asleep in Big Bear's arms, and Big Bear (finally! The little bear can’t fall asleep because he is afraid of the dark, and always seems to find some small area of darkness regardless of how many lanterns big bear brings for him. It is illustated in a very complimentary way, with beatiful pictures, again, great for engaging a child.

It showed the children that everyone has these feelings and if they try very hard they can overcome them and feel proud of themselves for doing so. Big Bear doesn't know what to do, there is dark everywhere, how is Big Bear supposed to light up all the dark at night-time? 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. 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. We then introduce the idea that it’s night time so we turn off the classroom lights, give them hot chocolate to taste and lastly put a black dark sheet across their eyes so that they really understand that it’s bedtime for the bears.The artwork by Barbara Firth is simply delightful, perfectly capturing the emotional register of each scene. My severe learning difficulties nursery class are reading the book as part of their literacy lessons which they absolutely love. A cute idea, but falls short, since it's way too wordy for the younger crowd, even though the concept is geared toward them.
