Wide-Awake Bear

March 1, 2018

We’ve all been there at one time or another. It’s the time when you’re exhausted but your child is wide awake.

Wide-Awake Bear is Elliot’s story.

Elliott, a little bear, and his mother prepare to nap until spring arrives. Elliot dreams of spring until something awakens him, and he can’t go back to sleep. He tries everything, but the shadows and dark shapes in the cave scare him. His mother wakes and comforts him, but he is still a Wide. Awake. Bear. He pretends he’s a little fish and swims to the den’s opening. When he sees snow, ice, and dark clouds, he’s disappointed spring isn’t anywhere to be found. Mama assures him spring will come and tells him many things need to sleep during the winter. With his mother’s help, they fix Elliot’s bed, share a treat, and snuggle until there is no more wide-awake bear. Author, Pat Zietlow Miller does a splendid job of creating a sweet tale about going to sleep. Parents and children will easily relate to this story when it comes to family bedtime. Jean Kim’s illustrations done in soft colors will steal your heart. This book begs to read again.
