Bear Is Not Tired by Ciara Gavin. Bear and the ducks live happily together. Because they are such a happy family, Bear often forget that he isn’t actually a duck. When winter weather starts chilling the air, Bear knows that soon it will be time for him to go to sleep, but he doesn’t want to go to sleep. He doesn’t want to miss out on all the fun the ducks will be having without him, so he decides to stay awake! His plan doesn’t work too well. Even though the ducks try to help him stay awake, Bear often falls asleep at very inconvenient times. Not until Mama Duck assures him that he won’t miss a thing, does Bear decide to give in and go to sleep. The ducks go about their daily business, including Bear whenever they can. One spring morning, Bear wake up! True to her word, Mama Duck has made a photo album to share with Bear when he woke up. Bear hadn’t missed a thing. His family made sure to include him, and he had the pictures to prove it! With illustrations that are soft, and full of expression, this is a perfect book for snuggling up with before taking a nice, long nap. See this book listed in our catalog
