A Sleepless Dream by Mohibul Nahar is a charming story about a little baby who is ready to go to bed after the day is done. He rests his head on his father’s chest and his father sings songs and pats his back while trying to put him to sleep, but the baby wants to snack. Though his crib is comfortable, he likes to cuddle next to his mommy and daddy with dim lights. The baby does not like to sleep on his own, even though his parents try to rock him to sleep. One day the baby reads a story about a boy who becomes a man. The boy has his own fun and the baby wants to be like that heroic boy. His father encourages him to drift away to sleep so that he can dream and head towards an upward path.

This delightful rhyming story speaks about the topic of putting children to sleep. The illustrations are colorful and lively and bring the concept and the characters to life beautifully. It is a good bedtime storybook for parents and grandparents to read out to their kids and grandkids. Many parents and children can relate to the parents and baby in the story. Teachers and educators can use this for storytelling sessions in classrooms and libraries and also for read aloud sessions. The baby in the story is adorable and I like the way the author knits the concept through the story of the baby and his parents.
