Mama finds a gentle way to make the medicine go down in another timeless tale about Sam and Mrs. Bear, the endearing stars of KISS GOOD NIGHT.
It was a cold, cold night
on Plum Street.
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 Sam can’t swallow it. What will make Sam feel better?
In this endearing follow-up to KISS GOOD NIGHT, 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.
