From the creator of Shh! We Have a Plan comes a mesmerizing bedtime tale of a forest settling into slumber and one little bear trying to stay awake. The sun is setting, and everyone in the forest is getting sleepy. The mice, rabbits, and deer all give great big yawns as they snuggle up with their families for the night. But someone isn't sleepy just yet. Little Bear thinks he can stay awake a bit longer. Can he do it? Chris Haughton's bold and vibrant illustrations will captivate little ones eager to stay up just a teeny bit longer, while sweet depictions of animals cozying up in their beds for the night will soon have them yawning off to a dreamland of their more

Review quote

Great Big Bear and Little Bear convey a sense of furry realness--especially when Little Bear gets -a great big goodnight kiss- from Great Big Bear, a massive, comforting presence. Children listening to Haughton's story might not fall asleep, but they'll have to admit that it's getting to be about that time. --Publishers Weekly (starred review) The result builds on classic traditions (are the echoes of Goodnight Moon deliberate or just inevitable for the genre?) while offering the pleasure of originality. That's what you look for in an bedtime ritual, and this is a ready-made one that families will relish adding to their oeuvre; both readers-aloud and listeners will find it hard to keep their eyes open long enough to finish the book. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review) An infectious bedtime story, sure to prompt yawns in readers and their preschool listeners as well. --Kirkus Reviews Preschoolers will get sleepy--very, very sleepy--as they make their way through the darkening, night-falling pages of Goodnight Everyone by Irish designer and illustrator Chris Haughton...If Margaret Wise Brown's Goodnight Moon doesn't do the trick, Goodnight Everyone will surely send the most stubbornly awake off to slumberland. --Shelf Awareness for Readers While the narrative is slight, Haughton's beautiful scenes artfully carry the story...Cozy, comforting, and perfect for bedtime. --Booklist Against these stunning backdrops his black-and-blue animals, at once satisfyingly bulky and marvelously expressive, tell a story as old as night. The conclusion is never in doubt, but the journey is full of magic. --Chicago Tribuneshow more
