This book contains some brilliant onomatopoeic words such as DRIP, DRIP went the leaky kitchen tap and CUCKOO CUCKOO I feel that reading this aloud with the children could open up so many discussions about onomatopoeia I think this might be a good topic for KS2 children.Essentially this is a story about Mr Bear, Mrs Bear and Baby Bear and it tells the tale of poor Mr Bear and his constant plight to get some sleep on a really noisy night in the Bear household, garden, car etc Jill Murphy uses won [...]

You know those nights when you can t sleep Every noise just seems to be extra loud and you end up lying wide awake, just listening Well that is how this book starts Mr Bear is trying to sleep but noises keep disturbing him so he goes place to place to sleep for the night with less and less success.Amusing till the end And any parent can relate to its ending so it will likely bring a chuckle or smile to your day This would probably be perfect on those nights the children just can t seem to sleep

Oh no I can t sleep here are words I hear again and again from children imitating this story book Filled with colourful pictures and simple sentences, it creates a perfect story for circle time Onomatopoeia within the story I find is very effective in grabbing childrens attention and also enabling them to join in with the sounds in the story Alliteration such as Tick, Tock,Tick, Tock went the living room clock within this story book alongside repitition and rhyme means children are exposed to ma [...]

A picture book about all the sounds at night that keep Mr Bear awake, from his wife s snoring to a dripping tap The story follows Mr Bear as he tries to find somewhere quiet to sleep.A good book for EYFS if you want to discuss sounds and highlight the importance of getting a good nights sleep I read it in nursery and the children got really involved in the story, joining in with making the noises and trying to guess what sounds would keep Mr Bear awake in each location Lots of opportunity for di [...]

Peace at Last is a funny book as Mr Bear explores many avenues in order to get some sleep, however the noises around the house keep him awake Murphy makes good use of onomatopoeia as the words that represent sounds keep the reader engaged and make the book exciting Sadly when Mr Bear does nodd off to sleep the alarm goes off, which results to Mr Bear not getting any sleep at all However he does get a lovely, hot cup of tea.

Meh It was alright for me The bears trying to find a peaceful place to sleep in a noisy house was rather humorous, but also not especially captivating I liked Jill Murphy s illustrations of witches and cats better see The Worst Witch but these are still pleasant and I am glad she included a hedgehog in the garden

This is a very sweet book about a father bear who can t get to sleep because of all the noise, he tries all the rooms in the house and outside but he cannot get to sleep anywhere The first page is the only page with a colour picture and writing We can see the house framed in a rectangle, helping us identify the scene The angular lines of the path automatically draw our eyes to the house, which is clearly the focal point For the rest of the book the left hand side page has writing and a black ske [...]

This is a book I will never forget, I read this book when I was in school in Year One and remember it ever since, it is a book that allows children to think what subjects or objects make certain sounds, giving them the opportunity to think In this book Mr Bear finds it very difficult to sleep due to the noise around him, he moves around the house in different rooms to find comfort, but wherever he goes there is no silence Murphy uses onomatopoeia to describe the sounds of the noise, e.g DRIP DRI [...]

Peace at Last is a fantastic bedtime story which tells the tale of father bear who has trouble getting to sleep as the noises during the night continuously keep him awake As he visits the different rooms inside the house and even results to going outside he is still unable to find a peaceful place to sleep I think that this is a terrific book to use in the classroom as it can be used to introduce and to also get the children to think about the different sounds that they can hear in their own env [...]

Peace At Last is a lovely book to read to young learners or for young readers to tackle themselves The use of rhyming and repetition throughout appeals to children and encourages them to engage with the story A variety of drama and role play activities can coincide with the telling of the story and children enjoy recreating the various sounds which prevent Mr.Bear from gaining a peaceful night s sleep Children also enjoyed revisiting the story to see if they can guess which noises keep Mr.Bear a [...]

I enjoy reading Jill Murphy books to my son at night he always joins in because the repetition of the book but the imagery is nicely done, my son always laughs at the bags under daddy bears eyes as the night goes on The book involves every day items that children can relate to this especially helpful to my 2 year old son who is learning to recognise letters Good for EYEFS and KS1 The only thing I would say the ending feels a little cut short so maybe as a teacher youget the children to think of [...]
