Somehow, my 2 year old takes the lessons less personally when we read about it in the books. We have the sharing, calm down time, hands are not for hitting and now this book in the series. The books are simply stated so that a 2 year old can understand. They are vague enough that they apply to most children and situations. A bonus, the colors and patterns are vintage/nostalgic and fun to look at.
When I tell him it's nap time, he gets very defensive and argumentative. So, my strategy has changed. Now, we sit down to read this book. The mommy in the book tells the boy it's nap time. My son can see how the little boy in the book responds and naps nicely. I can then lay him down and tell him to nap nicely like the boy in the book.
We've taken a cue from the books and differentiated nap time, bed time, and "calm down time". My son still naps in the morning, but has given up his afternoon sleep. However, he still gets tired and needs to rest in the afternoons. The "calm down time" book has helped demonstrate what it means, to have alone time and rest (without having it be punishment or "time out". I highly recommend that book, too.
I really like how the book is simple for a little one to understand and has a really gentle tone. The illustrations are really great as well.
