This gentle bedtime story is reassuring in every way. The tone is calm and supportive, and while Harry does have a problem -- insomnia -- the reader feels all along that the problem will be resolved happily. Everything Harry tries to help him get to sleep is a tried and true technique: He reads, gets up for a while, cleans his room, does some low-key exercise, and finally wakes his friends, who help him.

The softly colored pastel illustrations have an incredibly cozy, plush, and realistic feel to them. The image of the three toy animals snuggled up together under a fleecy soft blanket is appealing enough to put anyone to sleep.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
