Naptime Board Book
Naptime is one of the titles in Elizabeth Verdick's Toddler Tools board book series. In this one, Mommy tells the child it is time for bed. At first he wants to resist, but then she reminds him that napping is important to help him feel good throughout the day. He has a little routine that he follows to help him settle down for naptime, then....zzzzzzzzzz.........
The rhyming story is one that toddlers are going to enjoy and easily pick up as a part of their routine catch phrases throughout the day, for which Verdick is famous. The pictures portray an adorable young boy telling his story and will be appealing to young children. Even though they cannot read the story, the pictures clearly tell what is happening. The board book format is extremely sturdy, which will allow for repeated readings.
At the end of the book is a resource area for parents and caregivers. It explains the importance of getting enough sleep, and makes suggestions as to how to make naptime be a success. It is definitely a book that will become a favorite in a house with toddlers, and can even be used before naptime at school or daycare.
