Little Brown Bear wants to know how much his mother loves him. "You can count the ways," she says. She loves him more than he loves to gobble one pie, more than he loves to read six books, even more than he loves getting nine kisses. But that’s not enough for a little bear who isn’t ready for bed. Finally, Mama comes up with an example that helps Little Brown Bear count himself to sleep. A mother’s deep and steady love and a young child’s delight in play are captured in this charming bedtime counting book.
