Can't You Sleep Little Bear?
Written and illustrated by Barbara Firth
- 1988 Kate Greenaway Medal Winner
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!
