Can't You Sleep, Little Bear?
"I don't like the dark," said Little Bear.
"What dark?" said Big Bear.
"The dark all around us," said Little Bear.
In this tender account of a sleepless night in the bear cave, Big Bear sets out with all his patience and understanding to show Little Bear that the dark is nothing to be afraid of. When all the lanterns in the cave aren't enough to quell Little Bear's troubled emotions, Big Bear offers—in a final loving gesture—nothing less than the bright yellow moon and the twinkling stars! More comforting than even the best of lullabies, this bedtime story is destined to become a classic.

This story traces back to my earliest memories of being read to as a child. I was afraid of the dark, so my dad would read this to me every night (sometimes multiple times). I think I can still recite it verbatim to this day! I loved the repetitive cadence and the predictability of it as a young listener. I have fond memories of cuddling up next to my dad and hearing him say, “I’ve brought you the biggest lantern of them all!” Such a great story that was so easy to relate to as a frightened child being comforted by her father.
