Sleepy Bearsby Mem Fox, Kerry Argent (Illustrator)
Winter is here, and in winter, bears sleep. But how do you convince six not-so-sleepy bear cubs to go to bed? Mother Bear, of course, has found a way-with a cozy rhyme for each of them. Once again, beloved author Mem Fox enchants little ones-and their parents-with a tender bedtime story, irresistibly illustrated by Kerry Argent.

What a beautiful book! It's funny and tender and lyrical. We are on our second copy of this book! My daughter insisted on hearing it every night for over 6 months!
We all love this. Mem Fox has done it again. Her books are gorgeous. The illustrations are the best. The rhymes are great. Our kids love this book and want us to read it to them constantly. I wasn't sure about buying this, but I'm so glad I did. The bears are soo cute - you just want to cuddle them - especially 'Ali Bear, Ali Bear, Tummy so tight, dreaming of scrumptiousness all through the night...'
Chances are Mother Bear sings your childs favorite dream to one of her cute and cuddly kids. Every bear gets a different adventure lullaby before going to sleep until spring. This is such a great bedtime book with wonderful pictures and sweet rhymes. A must.
Perfect book for you and your little one to snuggle up with at bedtime!
