I’ll admit, I’m not good at napping. I close my eyes at 2pm for a little rest and wake up groggy after the sun has gone down. But The Napping Book gives me hope that someday I too will experience the perfect nap amongst my loved ones, as depicted in these pages (rainbow included).

Description


An oversized paperback edition of the classic cumulative tale, perfect for sharing at bedtime, naptime…anytime!

More than a foot in length and height, this big book version of The Napping House makes story time easy. Humorous and inviting, this story encourages young kids to read along—and make predictions.

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. What could be more comfy?

All is at peace until the appearance of an unexpected visitor and before you know it, no one is sleeping! This classic story by Audrey Wood and illustrated by Caldecott-honoree Don Wood is a must-have for the family library.
