Susanna Leonard Hill has a feature on her blog called Perfect Picture Book Friday. It is a list of “perfect” picture books recommended by all sorts of people. I chose this book because we’ve all known people like Duck (and Bear).
Opening and Synopsis- Opening – “I’ve never been so tired. I could sleep for weeks. Months, even!”
Synopsis – From Goodreads: “Bear can’t wait to go to sleep.
But Duck wants to hang out.
How will Bear ever fall asleep?”
Why I liked this book- This is a cute book. One character wants to sleep, the other doesn’t. A perfect scenario for mischief! I like Bear’s expressions, and Duck’s wild ideas. The story has a hint of an endless cycle, and a lot of fun. The pictures make you smile and laugh. Mr. John and Mr. Davies make a great team together, and it really keeps you on your toes. Just when you think you know what will happen next, you are in for a surprise! 🙂 I love this book!
Activities and Resources-
Talk with your child about bedtimes. Maybe about how they should respect other people’s bedtimes, and not bother them unless if absolutely necessary.
Maybe talk about how Duck could have been a better neighbor to bear.
