Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Nighttime fears are something that most children experience. The neighbor's cat running across the backyard or a moth bumping against the bedroom screen may seem harmless enough, but when you're young these strange sounds can seem pretty scary. A brave little boy helps his four Teddy Bear friends face the dark by reaching beyond his fears. Some reassuring words and a little love help provide comfort to make nighttime worry-free for all. This would make excellent reading at bedtime, especially for any child that may be afraid of the dark. It is sure to reduce fears and put little ones happily to asleep. 2000 (orig. 1997), Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing, Ages 3 to 6, $16.00 and $5.99. Reviewer: Sharon Tolle—Children's Literature
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1A small boy snuggles into bed with his four stuffed toys and finds he must soothe their childlike night fears. The language is realistic and, like the book, reassuring. Willie Bear, who hears a scary noise, learns from the boy that "sometimes there's a cat out poking around, or maybe a moth bumping against the screen. They make noises, too, but there's nothing out there that would hurt a little bear." Each of the four teddies has a different worry; as soon as one is settled and all is quiet, the "little sniffles" come again. Satisfying, repetitive, and with little drama, this bedtime companion is illustrated with colored pencils in a full-color palette tinted with nighttime hues. Shifts in perspective prevent the predictable story from becoming dull. The pictures reveal the details of a cozy middle-class home and are reminiscent of Jane Hissey's work in the "Little Bear" books Putnam. The tears here will be only a memory by story's end. Satisfying for reading aloud or independently.Carolyn Noah, Central Mass. Regional Library System, Worcester, MA
