I’m sure you’ve heard of The Napping House, but it is such a favorite at our house, I had to share it today. One of my sisters had a kindergarten teacher that seemed like the most fun teacher in the world. She introduced our family to this funny book, and it was another must-have once I had children of my own.
In case you haven’t heard of it yet, it is one of those books that builds one element on top of another: “And on that child, there is a dog, a dozing dog on a dreaming child on a snoring granny on a cozy bed in a napping house where everyone is sleeping.”
And, at the end, it all falls apart because of a wakeful flea and turns into a house where no one is sleeping!
I have not met a child that didn’t break into a grin of anticipation when I point out that wakeful flea poised on top of the “slumbering mouse on a snoozing cat on a dozing dog on a dreaming child on a snoring granny on a cozy bed in a napping house where everyone is sleeping.”
It’s a very fun book to read together, especially right before naptime. 😉
