Item Description...
When bedtime comes Little Bear is afraid of the dark, until Big Bear brings him lights and love.

Publishers Description
A beloved bedtime story lights up the dark all around us in this sumptuous new printing of a Candlewick classic.

Ten years ago, when a new Candlewick Press first published Martin Waddell's and Barbara Firth's CAN'T YOU SLEEP, LITTLE BEAR?, the quiet, classic picture book met with resounding reviews. "Move over GOODNIGHT MOON," raved PUBLISHERS WEEKLY in a boxed review (Candlewick's first review ever). "Perfect for bedtime, or anytime," echoed KIRKUS REVIEWS. "Bound to become a beloved bedtime ritual," said SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL.

Now, in honor of that tenth anniversary, the book that became the first of a best-selling series - about a Little Bear who doesn't like the dark and a sage Big Bear who brings him the moon - gets a well-earned deluxe treatment. This glorious printing boasts a beautiful new jacket embossed with gold, and a free, limited-edition print of the book's cover, showing Big and Little Bear, the bright, yellow moon, and all the twinkly stars - perfect for framing!

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Martin Waddell wanted OWL BABIES to capture the "strong emotion of 'I want my mommy!' " that is so familiar to children. Martin Waddell is the author of more than one hundred books for young readers.
Patrick Benson enlarged his technique of cross-hatching for the illustrations of OWL BABIES so that it would have "a more graphic image -- rather like a woodcut." Patrick Benson is also the illustrator of THE LITTLE BOAT by Kathy Henderson and LET THE LYNX COME IN by Jonathan London.

Martin Waddell currently resides in County Down.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Bedtime book  May 11, 2008
This is a dilariously sweet novel that combines the simple story of fear-of-dark with some clever and intricate illustrations that bring the right amount of humor to Little Bear's plight. What seemed predictable at first ended with an awe-inspiring declaration of both the wonder of the natural world and good ol' love. The illustrations are beautiful and the writing is just as pretty as anything. Great bedtime book.
Can't you sleep, Little Bear  Aug 1, 2007
Purchased this book for 1 of my grandkids. Love the story and the artwork. Great read for going to bed :). I just purchased another one for another of my grandkids and am looking forward to spending some "grandma" time with her.
A parable on a child's need for love & reassurance  May 30, 2007
My daughter received this book as a Christmas gift last year, and she still loves it. Not a week goes by without this book being read. The story is simple enough - Big Bear puts Little Bear to bed, and settles down to a night of reading. Little Bear however, can't seem to get to sleep - the different positions tried by Little Bear is so reminiscent of a child's tossing and turning in bed, and the illustrations made my daughter laugh. It turns out Little Bear is afraid of the dark, and the rest of the story deals with Big Bear's efforts in trying to provide Little Bear with light, when all is really needed is a big hug and reassurances. Its a wonderful tale about the importance of nurturing and reassuring one's child so that they grow up feeling secure in our love for them.
A winner....  Jan 10, 2007
This is a great bedtime story and my daughter loves it. Initially we got the book from the library, but I have since purchased our own copy. Tots will relate well to the little bear character, my daughter even recites some of the words. Its a great addition to our bedtime routine.
This book is a family favorite.  Nov 19, 2006
I used to read this book to my boys at bedtime. It was a nightly favorite. Recently we were discussing some of their favorite childhood memories and this came up. I decided to try to find a copy for my son to read to his daughter. This book is charming. Just about every child can relate to "little bear" as every adult can relate to "Big Bear". It's one to buy, keep and pass along.
