The Napping House board book

“A delightful marriage of words and pictures.” —Los Angeles Times

In the napping house is a cozy bed piled high with a snoring granny, a dreaming child, a dozing dog, a snoozing cat, and a slumbering mouse. All is at peace until the appearance of an unexpected visitor, and before you know it no one is sleeping!

 
This classic, cumulative tale is the perfect story to wake up to. The board book edition is now bolder more beautiful, with enhanced artwork in a larger trim size ideal for reading together. A must-have for every child’s library!

There is a house,
a napping house,
where everyone is sleeping.

“Everyone,” in this case is a snoring granny, a dreaming child, a dozing dog, a snoozing cat, a slumbering mouse… and a wakeful flea! Uh-oh. Looks like the napping house won’t be napping for long. With their very own brand of humor, Audrey Wood and Don Wood create an appealing bedtime book compatible with Margaret Wise Brown’s classic Goodnight Moon. This small, square board book, with its rhythmic, repetitive text and witty pictures in shades of ever-brightening blues and greens (as the night turns to day), is sure to be a winner with preschool insomniacs. The sleepy household congregates on Granny’s bed, slowly building a very relaxed pile of bodies in shifting positions. Young readers will enjoy tracking the critters as they make their way, one by one, to the bed–and then guessing what will happen when the wakeful flea joins the heap. Be sure to look for this author-illustrator team’s other hilarious collaborative efforts, including Piggies and Silly Sally. (Baby to preschool) –Emilie Coulter
