A beautifully illustrated, heartwarming book about childhood fears and parental patience and love in easing them. Author Martin Waddell's text is wonderful in its spare sweetness; artist Barbara Firth's renderings of a bear cub plagued by a fear of the dark are marvelous--she gets especially right the cub/child's antic restlessness (tumbling in his bed, playing with his toes) and his facial expressions of trepidation, mischief, wonder, and finally contentment as he falls asleep in his Papa Bear's arms.
A great read-to-me story for parents and little ones; highly recommended.
Sweet story with comforting images. Good book to read to a child who's afraid of the dark.
A good book if a child is afraid of the dark.
