Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Meddaugh's watercolor illustrations bring the vivacious text even more to life as Susie practically bounces off the page with her wide-open, never sleepy eyes as her father grows more and more weary." School Library Journal
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Eve Bunting's delightful tale (Clarion, 1989) of the age-old dilemma of a father persuading his toddler to nap reaches a new dimension in this well-executed audio recording. The tape, which contains page-turn signals on one side and is uninterrupted on the other, easily lends itself to independent reading and listening. The story is told in three voices: mother, father, and Susie, the precocious toddler Susie. Father and Susie speak only dialogue with the narrator chiming in with "he said" and "Susie said," making it simpler for emergent readers to follow. The narrator also speaks for Mother with a distinctive voice. Cheery background music will further engage young readers. An appropriate addition to a preschool and kindergarten classroom listening centers as well as general primary collections.-Linda Fortino, Charles Quentin Elementary School, Lake Zurich, IL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

PreS-- It's time for Susie's nap, but she declares, ``No nap. Susie isn't tired.'' Her father tries to tire her out by taking her for a walk and by dancing the boogie, the bongo, and the creepy camel. They do push-ups, windmills, stand on their hands, and read stories. Trying another tactic, he tells Susie to come and lie down with her already snoozing dump truck, Teddy bear, and dolly. She lies down next to her father, but soon pops up wanting a drink, as well as other items which Dad retrieves for her. Finally, Dad, completely zonked, falls asleep on Susie's bed with mounds of toys piled on top of him. Bunting's humorous and lively text will ring true to many preschoolers as they watch Susie wriggling out of taking the dreaded nap with all her might. Meddaugh's watercolor illustrations bring the vivacious text even more to life as Susie practically bounces off the page with her wide-open, never-sleepy eyes while her father grows more and more weary. --Leslie Barban, Richland County Public Library, Columbia, SC
