A wonderful board book edition of this perfect bedtime story.

“A great big bear like you,” said Fox, “so big and strong and brave, a creature so magnificent . . . deserves a bigger cave.”

A very sneaky Fox and a very sleepy Bear set off to explore other places for Bear to call home. The train tunnel is too loud, even if the double doors are nice. The hollow tree’s high ceilings are great, but the bats are not. The oceanfront option has great views — great, but damp.

Could it be that sleepy Bear’s own cozy cave is the perfect home after all?
