What a sweet book! Baby bear doesn't want to go to bed, so his father plays a silly game in order to comfort and amuse him. Most books about children struggling with bedtime seem to focus on the child discovering (or even being told by an adult) that his fears were hyper-emotional or unrealistic. This book is a rare gem because it shows a parent responding tenderly, playfully, and respectfully to a child's natural reluctance to go to sleep.
