  • This song is a great transition song when it’s nap time. Instead of announcing nap time, just press play. After a few times your students will know what to do without you having to say anything.
  • The music video for this song features a mama bear and a baby bear as they get ready for sleep and revisit moments from their day, and the song has two voices, one is the mama and the other the baby.
