Acclaimed author Mitchell Sharmat shares the story of a little bear named Berkley who doesn’t want to sleep for the winter in this adorable Level 2 Ready-to-Read.
Every night, Berkley Bear has trouble falling asleep. And every night, Momma and Poppa Bear try anything they can think of to help—from classical music to sleepy storybooks—but nothing works. He just isn’t tired! What will Berkley’s parents do if he is still wide awake when winter comes? Most bears hibernate, but Berkley isn’t most bears…and he plays games, draws, and dances all winter long. Then one day, he figures out his own way to finally fall asleep!
