"It's been a long day
and bedtime has come.
When little bears fight it,
tired grownups succumb."
When the sun sets in Bear Country, the birds and squirrels and ladybugs gather round the treehouse to watch the Bear Family's great bedtime battle. It begins when Papa Bear says, "It's eight o' clock, cubs. Time for bed." But Brother and Sister Bear will do anything to postpone their bedtime. After all, who wants to go to bed when you can play with dinosaurs, have a tea party, and get piggy back rides? Mama and Papa Bear soon learn that getting the little cubs to bed is going to be more challenging than they thought. . . especially with clever cubs like these.
