A storm is raging outside. The wind is howling and the trees are creaking. Inside a cozy cave, Bear and Mrs. Bear fast asleep. But not everyone can sleep. One by one, each of the 3 cubs finds his way to their room. First Baby Bear, then Little Bear, and finally Young Bear, come to their parent’s bedroom, each believing that a monster is outside, trying to get in. Bear calls each little one a scaredy-bear. But the cubs climb into bed with their parents and soon are fast asleep. All except Bear. He is wide awake! Maybe there really is a monster outside. When something knocks at the door, Bear is frightened. Can you guess what it is?
This is a great story to read aloud. Young listeners will love the repetition and the details in the illustrations. Expect many repeat readings.
