A Bedtime for Bear by Bonny Becker

Becker, Bonny A Bedtime for Bear, illustrated by Kady McDonald Denton.  Candlewick Press, 2010.  $16.99. PICTURE BOOK. Content-G.  

Bear needs everything to be just right before going to bed each night.  When his friend, Mouse, comes to spend the night and has a hard time being quiet, Bear struggles to keep his patience.  But in the end, their friendship outweighs the annoyance, and the story ends in a heartwarming and comical way.  

Enjoyable book!  The illustrations are fabulous.  The storyline isn't anything new, but the book is well worth reading.  Perfect for a unit on patience, friendship, etc.  

EL- ESSENTIAL.  Reviewer:  SL
