Things That Go Bump In The Night: Milk and Cookies by Frank Asch.
Little Bear's family visit to Grandpa and Grandma Bear happily turns into an impromptu sleepover. Grandpa offers a bedtime snack of milk and cookies, but Little Bear sleepily turns it down and toddles off to the sofa-bed to sleep with his parents.
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT BABY BEAR HEARD A NOISE. THEN HE SAW A RED LIGHT COMING FROM UNDER THE CELLAR DOOR.
HE PEEKED THROUGH THE KEYHOLE. WHAT HE SAW WAS LIKE A GIANT DRAGON WITH FLAMES SHOOTING FROM ITS MOUTH.
WHEN THE DRAGON SHUT ITS MOUTH, GRANDPA CAME UP.
Bewildered, Baby Bear hurries back to bed, but then he dreams the dragon comes upstairs, hungry!
Thinking fast, Baby Bear offers the dragon milk and cookies. Dragon eats them all, leaving not a one for him.
Baby Bear wakes up crying, and he tells Mama and Papa Bear what happened in his dream.
"WHATEVER GAVE YOU THE IDEA THERE WAS A DRAGON IN THE CELLAR?" ASKED PAPA.
And when Baby Bear recites what he saw through the keyhole, Papa Bear smiles and takes him downstairs for a closer look at Grandpa's furnace. Baby Bear understands, but he's still a little taken aback by his dream. What will wash away the traces of that disturbing dream?
Well, Grandpa and Grandma Bear come downstairs and they all share in a late night feast of... (what else?) Milk and Cookies (A Frank Asch Bear Book) (Aladdin Books, 2015). In a brand-new package, a new edition of this beloved Baby Bear book is a sweet treat for preschoolers to enjoy just as their parents did. Pair this one with what may be Asch's best Bear Book, in which Baby Bear outwits Papa in a tasty game of creative imagination,Sand Cake (A Frank Asch Bear Book).
