Tell Me the Day Backwards

author: Albert Lamb
illustrator: David McPhail

Just before going to bed, Timmy Bear and his mama play a game they call Tell Me the Day Backwards. Timmy tries to remember everything that happened to him that day in reverse, from watching the sunset on the hill to the picnic supper before that, from being chased by bees to finding honey in an old tree stump, all the way back to waking up that morning from his winter-long hibernation. Albert Lamb and David McPhail spin a charming bedtime story sure to have parents and children sharing their own day -- backwards -- with each other.

In this delightful bedtime story, a young bear tells his mama all about his exciting day – in reverse – inspiring little listeners to do the same.
