I also read this book with children when I worked in a pre-nursery and during SBT with the younger children. In ogni caso io l'ho preso semplicemente perchè il piccolo orso ha lo stesso problema di mia figlia.

So maybe this picturebook does not just help children overcome their fear of the dark but help parents be patient with their children.Big Bear learns that it's better to deal with a problem head on rather than ignore it by coming up with tiny or large remedies that will not last. Calming night-time nerves and awakening a sense of wonder at the magnificence of nature, this reassuring snuggle-up story is a must for any child. The children will easily be able to understand the plot of the story and will look forward to finding out Big Bear's solution to curing the darkness so that Little Bear can finally go to sleep in one peace!

different voices for little bear and big bear, facial expressions protraying fear, reassurance etc). It's a good story that used a lot of repetition throughout with 'Little Bear', 'Big Bear', conversation about the darkness and sleeping. to bring him progressively larger lanterns, nothing seems to help him overcome his fear of the dark that is "all around. The book also contains a lot of inverted commas so it could be used as an example for teaching those in grammar. Big Bear and Little Bear - "Big Bear is the big bear, and Little Bear is the little bear," the narrator informs us, in one of those dead-pan asides that I always find irresistibly hilarious - settle in for the night in this charming bedtime story about being afraid of the dark.He's frightened of the dark, the dark all around, which not even Big Bear's largest lantern can light up. The children loved this story and so did I, it is about a little bear who cannot go to sleep because he is afraid of the dark. For example we have two toy bears that we introduce to them at the beginning of the story who they get to cuddle and get a sense of their two sizes (bigger for big bear etc…), we then give them each a small teddy bear who they cuddle up in a blanket. They had clearly read it before numerous times because the repetition throughout meant they also read it aloud along with me! The DVD is short but beautiful, using the original pictures from the book with a little animation, soothing narration and gentle backing music to tell the story.

Big Bear doesn't know what to do, there is dark everywhere, how is Big Bear supposed to light up all the dark at night-time?

They are also shaped like windows so that the reader is almost looking into this new world where the bears live. is an immensely satisfying book, depicting both Little Bear's fears, and Big Bear's compassion and patience, with sympathy. My severe learning difficulties nursery class are reading the book as part of their literacy lessons which they absolutely love. It has such emotional importance to me as my third daughter had breathing difficulties when she was born and spent the first 5 weeks of her life in NICU.

It reminds me of big bear, being persistent, creative and patient with little bear are important attributes for parents. I recently bought this for a friend who is expecting, I hadn't noticed it was a 'pop up' version, so was pleasantly surprised. I found it a book that was good to relax the children and one to read them when they are not feeling very brave themselves. Described as 'the most perfect children's book ever written', this is a beautiful 25th anniversary edition of the Kate Greenaway-winning story of Little Bear, who just can't sleep.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Big Bear sees Little Bear in distress so he stops reading his book and gives Little Bear a small lantern to sleep with, however, it seems this isn't enough for Little Bear. This is a story about a little bear that is afraid of the dark, yet overcomes this fear with the help of Big Bear, a portrayal similar to parent and child and hence easy to relate to the comfort sought and the comfort given. However as they are so young and don’t yet have the cognitive ability to have this book read to them fully as a class they have the story read to them as a sensory story – which I have found fascinating. We then introduce the idea that it’s night time so we turn off the classroom lights, give them hot chocolate to taste and lastly put a black dark sheet across their eyes so that they really understand that it’s bedtime for the bears.
