After a long day at school, Principal Fred slips into his pajamas to get ready for bed. But something is missing--where is his bear? "I need Bear!" Fred yells as he races down the stairs. He zigs and he zags and he hops across chairs. Follow Principal Fred and his family as they dash and they crash and they search for the principal's favorite stuffed animal. Mixed media illustrations by Donald Wu help bring this bedtime romp to a fitting conclusion.

The author and illustrator of Principal Fred Won't Go To Bed have donated this book to the Worldreader program.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When Principal Fred can't find his stuffed toy teddy, he can't go to sleep, and he tears around the house yelling, I need Bear. Young kids will love the slapstick scenario of a school authority figure as helpless and desperate as children get when their beloved cuddly companions go missing. The text's rhythms and rhymes capture the family panic and uproar ( They dashed and they crashed / into bathrooms and halls ), while the striking acrylic and colored-pencil pictures, with the principal in pink-striped jammies, clutching his blankie and helped by his dog, show the satisfying reversal as the bossy adult falls apart.--Rochman, Hazel Copyright 2010 Booklist"
