I know I’ve featured Mem Fox quite a bit, but I can’t help it. Her books, on the whole, are readable and enjoyable for both parents and children alike.

Sleepy Bears tells the tale of a mother bear, calling her cubs in to sleep for the winter “Come in, come in, my beautiful bears. Winter is here and in winter we sleep”. She then goes on to speak to each of her cubs individually, telling them what they may dream of, as they drift off “to sleep” to hibernate for the winter.

It has a lovely rhythm to the text, with a sense of adventure, while still being a quiet, calming book, just right for bedtime.
