Children’s Book Review: Sleep Tight, Sleepy Bears By Margaret Wise Brown

Sleep Tight Sleepy Bear

SLEEP TIGHT, SLEEPY BEARS

By: Margaret Wise Brown

Illustrated by: Julie Clay

Published: April 2, 2019

Publisher: Silver Dolphin Books

Fiction

This is part of the new series of Margaret Wise Brown classics for children. Several manuscripts were found by author, Amy Gary, and turned into books.

This is the perfect companion to the beloved favorite, GOODNIGHT MOON. It is the sweetest bedtime story and the illustrations are just absolutely adorable.

I love that the “big sleepy bear” isn’t identified as a mom or dad. So anyone can read this book at bedtime with a child…Grandma, Grandpa, Mom, Dad, sibling, aunt, or even a foster parent.

Big sleepy bear goes through the motions of getting ready for bed and little sleepy bear follows along. First a yawn, then a stretch, then climbing into bed and putting their heads on a pillow. A sweet lullaby and it’s off to dreamland, but who will fall asleep first, big sleepy bear or little sleepy bear?

This is exactly the kind of book I would have read to our kids at night. Little ones can go through the motions of getting ready for bed. With repetitive text, they will soon be reading along with you. The illustrations are soft and adorable making the bears look cuddly. I would bet, reading this book will make any adult and child sleepy. Add this one to your bedtime reading bookshelf.
