Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everyone knows the cumulative rhyme and#8220;This Is the House That Jack Built,and#8221; but The Napping House (1984) is close on its heels in the race for posterity: and#8220;And on that granny / there is a child / a dreaming child / on a snoring granny / on a cozy bed / in a napping house, / where everyone is sleeping.and#8221; Included in the napping house menagerie is a dozing dog, a snoozing cat, a slumbering mouse, and a wakeful flea who ends up toppling the whole sleep heap with one chomp! Don Woodand#8217;s delightfully detailed comical illustrations are bathed in moonlight blues until the sun comes up, then all is color and rainbows and a very awake household.
Awards: ALA Notable Childrenand#8217;s Book, New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year, Golden Kite Award winner, California Young Reader Medal winner, Booklist Editorsand#8217; Choice

Synopsis:

A cozy bed, a snoring granny, a dreaming child, a dozing dog, a snoozing--WAIT! There's a surprise in store, and little ones will want to discover it over and over again. So pull on your sleeping cap and snuggle in for a timeless cumulative tale that's truly like no other. Don and Audrey Wood's beloved picture book has sold more than one and a half million copies. To celebrate its birthday, the original hardcover book now has a fresh new design for both the jacket and interior, and the reproduction of the illustrations has been enhanced to better match the original artwork. A CD is tucked into a sleeve on the inside the front cover. The music, originally produced in 1989, is based on the book and was written and performed by children's musicians Carl and Jennifer Shaylen. The CD begins with a reading of the story and follows with six original songs that are just as fun, jaunty, and sweet as the book itself.

Synopsis:

In an innovativeand#160;bedtime book for young readers,and#160;the fresh look ofand#160;Caldecott Honor Medalist Pamela Zagarenski's luminous illustrationsand#160;paired with Mary Logue's poetic andand#160;unadorned languageand#160;frame the very simple-sounding question: does everything in the world go to sleep?and#160;This is aand#160;book certain to give you good dreams!

Synopsis:

2013 Randolph Caldecott Honor Award

In this magical bedtime story, the lyrical narrative echoes a Runaway Bunny and#8211; like cadence: and#8220;Does everything in the world go to sleep?and#8221; the little girl asks. In sincere and imaginative dialogue between a not-at-all sleepy child and understanding parents, the little girl decides and#8220;in a cocoon of sheets, a nest of blankets,and#8221; she is ready to sleep, warm and strong, just like a tiger. The Caldecott Honor artist Pamela Zagarenskiand#8217;s rich, luminous mixed-media paintings effervesce with odd, charming details that nonsleepy children could examine for hours. A rare gem.
