Now sized to fit into small hands, this edition of the popular cumulative rhyme retains the charm of the original as the dozing characters remain piled high upon the bed. Though the wakeful flea may be hard to discern in this miniature version, the bouncing action that ensues is captured in the apt reissue. Copyright 1998 Horn Book Guide Reviews

Reissued again in board book form, this edition of the popular cumulative rhyme retains the charm of the original. Though the wakeful flea may be hard to discern in this small version, the bouncing action that ensues is still quite apparent. Copyright 2001 Horn Book Guide Reviews

A picture-book favorite returns as an oversize board book just right for lap reading: The Napping House by Audrey Wood, illus. by Don Wood. The misty blue artwork that chronicles the "dreaming child," "snoring granny" and a number of additional snoozers seems to bleed off the pages with their rounded corners, until that "wakeful flea" disrupts the sleepers and the sunny colors signal the end of naptime.
