I love this series of bears books, the lessons are simple, the text is rhyming and the bears are adorable.

Five bears head to bed, only to be scared by some nightly noises. Five bears are out of bed, until Big Brown Bear suggests they sleep in just one. Like Bears on Chairs, less is more as the bears come together, sharing what they have.

Background colours reflect on the emotions of the bears, and with the exception of the scared yellow, are in calm blues and purples. Images are painted in acrylic, yet the artist managed to give it the soft, warm, fuzzy feel of pastels.

For the most part, the easy rhyme scheme works, but in several instances "bear" is rhymed with "bear" or something is different in the meter that gives an awkward pause. With sparse text, a cute idea, and some addition and subtraction, it does make for a good bedtime story, because in the end the nightly noises are forgotten and the bears get some sleep.
