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.

The last set of books we got her were some of the Golden Books. She liked many of them well enough, and would request them at nap, or bedtime, and do her on memorized "reads" of the books, but no big deal.
This one was different. We read it for the first time at a random time on a Saturday morning. We finished it, and I asked her, "what do you think?" She replied, "I like that book." Normally she just says things were, "good". My wife and I giggled. Then our little girl did her usual "re-readthrough" of the book on her own, and moments later declared, "I really love this book." Melted my heart to hear such a sentence from my not even three-year old, regarding books.
If you haven't read this, the repetitive cadence lulls your little one into a calm state and is great for bed time. The artwork is beautiful and detailed, and each page plays off the last - you can follow the motion of the characters page over page, even when their "verse" is over.
