It is bedtime but Little Cub doesn't want to stop playing. She tries all the familiar tricks: a drink, the bathroom, questions, one more book, and being afraid. Mama Bear is tired but remains patient and gentle as she tucks Little Cub into bed. The next day, Little Cub learns what happens when we don't get enough rest. She gets grumpy and doesn't enjoy her day very much. Mama Bear explains the rhythm of rest that God has given us, and Little Bear finally understands its importance. That night she sleeps well and awakes refreshed and ready for a new day.
God Gave Us Sleep is the perfect book to read to reluctant children trying to extend bedtime as long as possible. I like that it shows Little Cub having a tired and grumpy day after a restless night. I received an ebook free for this review, but I will be buying a physical copy to add to our bedtime story collection. God Gave Us Sleep is another wonderful book from Lisa Tawn Bergren and Laura J. Bryant. We highly recommend it!
