Bedtime for Little Bears!
I know I say this about a lot of books, but this is a sweet book. I like quiet, gentle stories and I'm not ashamed. Bedtime for Little Bears!, by David Bedford and illustrated by Caroline Pedler, may help you stay mellow when the little one just doesn't want to go to sleep.
Little (polar) Bear insists he isn't tired, so Mother Bear takes him around to see other sub-arctic animals such as Baby Hare and Little Fox preparing for bed. In time Little Bear can't help but succumb to the comfort of his mother's fur.
There's a lot of white and soft blues in this book, and Pedler uses enough texture to give the animals and the snow a fluffy appearance. A good bedtime book.
