Children's LiteratureLittle Bear's father sets up a tent in the backyard. Little Bear is very excited because the moon will be full and he will get to sleep in the tent. He invites all of his friends over to join him. They dance under the moon and the stars until they are sleepy and then crawl into the tent and fall asleep. They are awoken in the middle of the night when a turkey falls over their tent. Little Bear and his friends are scared, but go outside to see what the noise was. When they find out that that the turkey was running from something scary in the woods, they invite him into the tent where they all fall asleep again. Similar to the "Little Bear" cartoons on TV, this simple story, and the small adventure that the characters have in the backyard, will appeal to young children. The illustrations are full-color and portray each of the characters in different activities throughout the day. Suitable to be read aloud to children, as well as for beginning readers, a note to parents providing hints on how to interest their children in reading is included at the end of the text. 2004, HarperCollins, Ages 4 to 6.
