Peace at Last


Peace at Last by Jill Murphy is the lovely story of poor Mr. Bear and his sleepless night. Mr. Bear goes from room to room trying to find a place to sleep with no noise. Kids love joining in with the noises! SNORE, SNORE goes Mrs. Bear. TICK TOCK goes the clock. And many more…

This is the perfect story for teaching home, furniture and house object vocabulary. It also connects well to the themes of animals and times of the day.
