Praise

Metcalf’s mixed-media illustrations use starlight, a full moon, and Daddy Bear’s lantern to illuminate the night. The scribbly-furred cartoon bears are not scary at all, and the other forest denizens are equally cute and nonthreatening; even the sight that so frightens Daddy and Baby Bear will not frighten readers. Gives caregivers a new response in their arsenal of answers to the nighttime question "What was that noise?"
—Kirkus Reviews

Told in simple, whimsical rhyme, this charming read-aloud has appealing, colorful illustrations that capture the emotions of the bears on their late-night trek through the forest. Using subtle humor, the author tells a bedtime story of a loving family coming together to allay their children’s fears.
—School Library Connection

Metcalf’s mixed-media cartoons effectively lighten the monster-driven plot. Her bears have vibrant brown fur, contrasting with the landscape’s cool blue and green tones, and her charcoal-like shading gives depth to the forest scenery…Dale keeps the mood funny and light, right up to the revelation of what startled Baby Bear to begin with.
—Publishers Weekly

Reassuring and comforting, this carries an unobtrusive message that fears are often more imaginary than real, and the rollicking rhyming text encourages listeners to help tell the story.
