Children’s Book Review: Sleep, Big Bear, Sleep by Maureen Wright

This week, Rapunzel brought home a new book from the school library called Sleep, Big Bear Sleep by Maureen Wright.  I have to say this is probably the best book she's brought home from school.

I often wonder how Tinkerbell describes her show & tell item.  At home, it's more like this: "It's my doll and I like to play with her."
