The Napping House
1stPublisher: Red Wagon BooksFormat: Board Book
Everyone knows the cumulative rhyme “This Is the House That Jack Built,” but “The Napping House” (1984) is close on its heels in the race for posterity: "And on that granny / there is a child / a dreaming child / on a snoring granny / on a cozy bed / in a napping house, / where everyone is sleeping." Included in the napping house menagerie is a dozing dog, a snoozing cat, a slumbering mouse, and a wakeful flea who ends up toppling the whole sleep heap with one chomp Don Wood's delightfully detailed comical illustrations are bathed in moonlight blues until the sun comes up, then all is color and rainbows and a very awake household.Awards: ALA Notable Children's Book, New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year, Golden Kite Award winner, California Young Reader Medal winner, Booklist Editors' Choice
