Bernard lives at the zoo and his favorite pastime there is naptime but Bernard's snoring disturbs everyone. Try as he might he can't find a place where he can rest. His moving seems hopeless until his otter family tell him to come back telling him they miss him and his snoring.
Bernard's got himself in a bind! No one wants him around and I was just feeling for him although if I had someone snoring loudly next to me I wouldn't be too happy either. You feel bad for Bernard no matter how loudly he snores. Each place he goes animals yell at him to STOP SNORING! He gets more tired the longer he goes without sleep. The animals telling Bernard to stop snoring is a good way for kids to get into the book shouting with the animals. In the end the otters, who adorably hold hands so they don't float away from each other while sleeping, want him back because they couldn't sleep without him. It was a sweet book with an interactive feel for kids. It also goes to show you that saying is true - sometimes you can't live with someone but you also can't live without them.
