Naps are just a little break—but when it’s naptime, many toddlers have trouble settling into sleep. This calming, encouraging book helps young children quiet down so they can get the rest they need. Eyes are closed, lights are dimmed…and (yawn, s-t-r-e-t-c-h) before little ones know it, it’s time to wake up. Cozy illustrations enhance the text.

An award-winning author/illustrator team offers a fresh look at the times and transitions all toddlers face daily, giving young children the tools to handle routines with confidence and cooperation.

Part of the Toddler Tools series, Naptime can be shared before (or during) the desired “time,” or whenever toddlers need encouragement with routines. Includes tips for parents and caregivers.

I often give my child the choice between two books at naptime, he almost always picks this book. The illustrations are nice and colorful and the text flows nicely. I believe it had helped with the transition from play to sleep.

This was one of only two nap-time books still being printed that I've been able to find- and luckily it is a cute book. Not too long & not too short for our toddler. We've even started using the last sentence of the book ("Naps a just a little break, see you when you wake.") as the last thing we say before heading out the door :)
