‘The Bear Who Couldn’t Sleep’ is an enchanting children’s story, filled with wondrous illustrations by Vanya Nastanlieva. The book centres around a little bear cub who just can’t sleep. It’s winter time and he should be hibernating, just like his mum and brothers, but bear just can’t seem to be able to fall asleep. As he is wide awake, he decides to venture out of the family den and see if he can find someone awake to talk to. He soon realises that all of his neighbours are fast asleep too. He starts to walk further and further away from his den, until he strolls into New York City. Whilst he is there he decides to see all of the sights that ‘The Big Apple’ has to offer, from Central Park to the Natural History Museum. But what will happen to bear when he suddenly becomes tired, in the city that never sleeps? Having recently returned from a trip to New York City, it was lovely to see all the wonderful sights that I visited, drawn so beautifully. The little bear is very cute and adorable, and the story is certainly heart-warming, leaving me with a smile on my face. The feel of the book really gets you in the mood for winter, with the snowy pictures. Younger children will find this book fascinating, and it would make the perfect bedtime story.

A cute little tale of a bear unable to sleep in the forest with his parents. He goes to the city that never sleeps. While the book never says the actually city name, by the places he visits, you will find out. Growing up in Kansas, I don't think that the book had a hold on me like if I lived in a bigger city. I think rural area kids would have a hard time grasping the places he visits, but the message still rings true. Thank you NorthSouth Books Inc. and NetGalley for a digital ARC of this book to give an honest review.

It is an incredible book for parents to help kids get to sleep. It is about Bear who can't go to sleep so he goes out on a walk in the snow. He wants to see if someone can keeps to be with him but everyone is asleep. He goes to museums and landscapes and eats and sees people. He does some other things and I am not going to tell you because if I do it will ruin it - it helps you get your children to sleep - and I tell you this is so adorable - and it makes me wish my kid was still a kid so I could put him to sleep and read him this - I love it. I received a copy of this book to read to give you an honest review
