“This follow-up to the best-selling Kiss Good Night will comfort little ones like a cozy blanket that’s tucked in just right.” — Booklist (starred review)
In the little white house, Mrs. Bear is putting Sam to bed, when suddenly — HCK HCK! coughs Sam. Mrs. Bear gets some syrup. But the syrup tastes bad, and there’s too much of it on a too-big spoon, and it’s too hard to swallow. What will make Sam feel better? Acclaimed picture-book creators Amy Hest and Anita Jeram revisit Sam and Mrs. Bear as they share a quiet moment of comfort that is enough to conquer the coldest night.
Parents will relate to the difficulties of coaxing a child to take a spoonful of medicine, while Anita Jeram—illustrator of GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU—provides beautifully reassuring art. —Scholastic Parent & Child
