A beloved bedtime story lights up the dark all around us.

"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 book holds a very special place in my heart. A beloved mentor of mine responded to my chronic insomnia and feelings of loneliness by reading this book to me. I, being 22 at the time, was embarrassed at first that a children's book was being read to me, but as the book's loving words filled my ears, I found my eyes welling up and a delighted smile spreading across my face. I discovered within myself my own little girl part that was afraid of the dark. Now, every time I see the moon, I hear Big Bear's words, 'I've brought you the moon, Little Bear, the bright yellow moon and all the twinkley stars.' Surely that must be the measure of a good children's book--that an adult can find something in it to comfort his/her own inner child, and gain confidence to solve the constant barrage of grown-up problems. I will treasure this book always. Also, I hope all who read this have someone intuitive and special in their lives like my wonderful mentor and friend.

Steve read this to Oliver. Too many words but he sat through it. Little bear wants to light up the dark. In the end they go out and see the moon. I found the 'big bear, little bear' thing a bit weird. Who is the Big bear? Is it the mother, the father?

This is another good book about children being afraid of the dark. I would recommend reading this to a child/toddler who is having trouble sleeping in their "big boy/girl" bed for the first time. This would also be a good book to help open up the dialogue with a child about what they are afraid of and why. The illustrations are beautiful and the anniversary printing is really nice.

This was our nightime book for while on vacation and it was to long & involved for a 2 yr old but the 4 yr old loved it. I will keep it at our house for when they visit Oma & Papa
