When you can’t sleep, call the Bedtime Bears!  And a playful bunch will invite you to use your imagination – and use up up today’s energy! – before everybody falls asleep. A short bedtime story, illustrated with photos of the Moon over beautiful Tampa Bay landscapes.

Featuring a wonderful performance by the amazing voice actor and guitarist Dave Waterman, with lovely illustrations from his ongoing photography series focused on his beautiful backyard and on the grounds of USF’s Contemporary Art Museum.
