Children's LiteratureWhen Baby Leo wants to take a nap, it is Papa Lion who makes certain that the entire jungle quiets down under threat of being gobbled up for disturbing the baby. The silence lasts for only a short time. Typical jungle disturbances happen time and again during naptime, but each time Baby Leo sleeps on and Papa Lion is left without a snack. As Papa Lion's frustration grows with each outburst so do his hunger pangs. Young children will love the rhythmic language used to describe the noises the various animals make. They will also delight in predicting who it is that finally wakes up Baby Leo. Vibrant, comical illustrations bring the jungle to life in this fun read-aloud. 2003, Orchard Books/Scholastic, Ages 3 to 6.
