It was time for Little Bear’s first winter sleep.
‘All bears sleep through winter,’ said Little Bear’s mother.
‘And we won’t wake until spring,’ said Little Bear’s father.
‘It’s a big, big sleep.’
Little Bear is in the cave with his mother and father, who have settled down for their big winter sleep.
But Little Bear has a problem he can’t get to sleep!
He snuggles and sings and softly strokes his ear.
Will Little Bear be able to get to sleep before springtime?
