The Napping House Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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!
 
A cumulative tale perfect for bedtime, naptime, or anytime. The padded covers, rounded corners, and sturdy board book pages make it a great gift for little ones.

Synopsis:

This lap-sized board book tells the story of a snoring granny, a dreaming child, a dozing dog, a snoozing cat, and a tiny slumbering mouse, all in a cozy bed. But then an unexpected visitor arrives to interrupt a rainy afternoon in the Napping House. Full color.

Synopsis:

Readers can cuddle up with this classic bedtime story, now in a special padded board book edition. Full color.

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.
