Toddler Tools® Series


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.

Praise for Naptime
“The rhyming story is one that toddlers are going to enjoy and easily pick up as part of their routine catch phrases throughout the day. The pictures portray an adorable young boy telling his story and will be appealing to young children. It definitely is a book that will become a favorite with toddlers and can even be used before naptime at school or childcare.”—Andrea Coventry, Montessori educator, Andi’s Kids Books blog
