She sings lullabies, she rocks him in her arms, she tells him his favorite stories....

In the tradition of the beloved Guess How Much I Love You, this reassuring story of love will give young children the sweetest dreams ever.

Author Bio: Claire Freedman is the author of several books for children. She lives on the Essex coast of England. Rory Tyger is the collective name for three artists who have illustrated many children's books; School Library Journal called their work “fresh and original. ” The artists live and work in Hertfordshire, England.

While babysitting, Grandma tries several ways to get Archie to feel sleepy but nothing works until she remembers how she used to put his mother to bed when she was a little girl.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Grandma Bear isn't having any luck coaxing her grandson into dreamland. Then she hits upon the idea of telling Archie all about his mommy when she was a cub. The older bear makes sure to include just enough titillating "naughty things" to show that Mommy wasn't always an upstanding citizen: two spot illustrations show the girl cub eating oatmeal from a bowl jauntily perched upside-down on her head, and bouncing on the bed while the feathers fly. Then, as Grandma reminisces about the bedtime techniques she used way back when (a special tuck-in, a forehead stroke, a kiss followed by "Good night, sleep tight"), Archie realizes that his mommy does the same thing with him today, and happily drifts off to sleep. Tyger (The Wide-Mouthed Frog), the nom de plume of a three-artist team, works in subdued, downy watercolors that emphasize how Grandma's loving, ample girth envelops the plump little Archie like a comforter. Freeman's (Hushabye Lily) language, with its familiar words and rhythms, resonates with security and affection. The word "sleepy" serves as a kind of refrain throughout the text, and although it's used to described what Archie is not, it functions as a subliminal (and effective) soporific. Ages 3-6. (Sept.)

Children's Literature
This version of a bedtime story has Grandma trying to get a very wide-awake Archie to sleep. She gathers his favorite stuffed animals, warms some milk, watches fireflies dance while holding him, but he still isn't tired. Even a lullaby, being rocked in her arms, and a long story about when his mother was little do not help. Finally, she remembers what worked for his mother, and Archie falls asleep. This overtly sentimental story finds a very comfortable visual partner in Tyger's gentle, mutely-colored, sketchy paintings. Perhaps some youngsters may puzzle over the anthropomorphic behavior of the unclad bears, but their charm, and the recognizable steps to bedtime should quickly capture their attention and project them into these universal scenes. 2003, Harry N Abrams, Ages 3 to 6.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Grandma bear is baby-sitting Archie, who is having trouble falling asleep. She makes sure he has his stuffed animals, sings lullabies, and warms up milk. Even watching dancing fireflies fails to make her drowsy. What finally works is telling him stories about when his mommy was little, especially about putting her to bed. The language has a gentle cadence that is relaxing and soothing. The pastel-colored illustrations complement the story and the pale tones and soft edges give the artwork a cozy, comforting appearance. Some of the spreads are larger than life and will draw reluctant sleepers right into the scenes. The intergenerational relationship alone makes this a worthy addition to any collection.-Linda M.

Kirkus Reviews
Archie the bear is having a hard time getting to sleep despite the valiant efforts of his babysitting grandmother in a soothing story that's certain to appeal to even the most resistant young sleeper. Grandma's obviously a pro at the art of sleep induction, offering a host of snuggly friends into the bed, a warm glass of milk, and even a lullaby. The final effort proves successful: "She smiled a secret smile as she remembered putting Archie's mother to bed when she was little." Parents will be especially touched by the ensuing night-time routine that has been passed down through the generations. Tyger's adorable illustrations fit the text perfectly, with gentle yet colorful renderings that capture the special moments between Archie and his grandmother. A real bedtime treat for both parents and children alike. (Picture book. 2-5)
