Boris and the Worrisome Wakies
by Helen Lester, illustrated by Lynn Munsinger
Boris the badger goes to bed but doesn’t sleep because his mind goes non-stop. At school, he misses out on all the fun — field day, the school play, and being line leader — because he’s so tired. That’s when Boris decides to find a solution for each worry so he can go to bed, get to sleep, and not miss a minute more of his day.
