You can sense the spirit of love in every page as it pours from a concerned mother bear 's heart into her little cub when it 's his bedtime.Frankie does not like to go to sleep.

This ritual continues night after night and as the current ball of yarn disappears his Mother hands him a brand new coloured one.

Finally Frankie admits to her that he is big enough to sleep on his own which signals his mother to hand him one last ball of yarn.

It is a eautiful story that will appeal to those who knit and be perfect to share with your little one if she/he is experiencing fear of the dark at bedtime too.
