In this snuggly lullaby, a polar bear cub asks his mother a multitude of “why” questions before he falls asleep: Why is there a moon up in the sky? Why do we dream? Why are there stars in the sky? And why can’t we see the stars during the day? Finally, once she has explained everything to him, Mama ushers her little one off to sleep, explaining that she will sleep too—so she can dream about her dearest cub.
