A splendid bedtime book for grandparents to share with grandchildren, with the ‘I don’t feel a bit sleepy’ issue. Grandma and Baby Bear go through all the tuck-in-with-toys, milky drink, sing lullabies, rocking in arms, but Baby still does not feel sleepy. Here the story breaks away from the familiar, with counting fireflies and walking down to the apple garden. It is only when Grandma starts telling stories of Baby’s Mummy’s not-feeling-sleepy nights that a return to his bed and soft words do the trick. For Grandma remembers that she used to stroke his mother’s head, give her a special goodnight kiss… The pictures are gentle, in soft, warm colours, and there is pleasing, comforting security.
