Booklist Review

This bedtime romp, first published in Australia in 2005, was named a 2006 Honour Book by the Children's Book Council of Australia. Its familiar scenario, which puts a comic spin on the nightly conflict of getting ready for bed, will speak loudly to children elsewhere as well. Baby Bear is cranky and wants none of the bath, bed, and beyond stuff. He gives his mother a bedtime kiss, but steadfastly refuses Father Bear's entreaties, even as Father cleverly moves Baby up the stairs, into the bath, and into bed all the while showing how other baby animals might kiss their dads. Legge's rounded, glowing, comforting illustrations cleverly embed images of a variety of animals into each scene a crocodile soap dish, a koala stair decoration, mouse ears on Baby Bear's bedpost making each page a delight to study. A satisfying kiss and bonus hug make a fitting end.--Fletcher, Connie Copyright 2008 Booklist
