Product description

Poor Mr Bear is desperate to get to sleep – but Mrs Bear is snoring. Baby Bear is pretending to be an aeroplane, so there’s no peace there. TICK TOCK goes the living room clock. CUCKOO! Will the kitchen offer sanctuary? Packed with glowing pictures and repetitive sounds to say out loud, this warm-hearted family story is an all-time favourite.

Also available: Read and Respond activities to accompany Peace at Last.

    This reminds me of my dad. I feel quite sorry for the bear especially in the morning his eyes look so sleepy. A great reminder for all children that parents need there sleep. Great pictures too. I would recommend this book for younger children.

    This is a classic story which children of all ages enjoy. Poor Daddy bear can’t find anywhere to get some sleep. There are great illustrations, words and repetition in this book. Perfect for young children everywhere.
