Synopsis

Those adorable bears from Bears on Chairs return in an irresistibly sweet bedtime story.

It’s time for Big Brown Bear to tuck all four little bears into their beds. Then he’s ready to climb into his own bed and turn out the light. Five warm beds, holding five sleepy bears, until a sound goes whoosh in the middle of the night, and all the bears wake up in a fright. Will they ever get back into bed? Luckily, Big Brown Bear knows just what to do! A fun, rhyming read-aloud that parents will love and tired little cubs will be happy to snuggle up with.

But when “Big Brown Bear/ looks for a chair./ There is none there/ for that big bear.” When Big Brown Bear finds he is too big to share a chair with Floppy Bear, his dismay is evident in the acrylic illustrations.

Portland Book Review

Big Brown Bear invites them to snuggle in his bed and so all five bears are in one bed and Big Brown Bear “reads them a story about three bears and a pesky girl with golden hair.” Slowly the bears fall asleep again.
