This was a very cute story about a little bear that just wasn't sleepy at bedtime. His grandma gives him warm milk and counts fireflies with him, along with many other things....until finally he was sleepy enough for bed. It is a sweet bedtime story for young ones.
Example quote: "Grandma rocked Archie gently in her arms, all the way down to the apple grove and back."
Teaching opportunity: This is a great time to set up a bedtime routine with your children if you haven't already. Review the schedule and steps they need to go through to get into bed so that they feel tired and relaxed. Remember to incorporate relaxing activities, such as reading a book to them. Find out if there is something small and fun that they would like to add to their bedtime routine, such as a special glass of warm milk, or a nose nuzzle. Something fun and unique that will have them excited for bedtime.
