Five sleepy-heads having a good sleep, then comes along number 6 and all heck breaks loose. What a creative tale. With it's rhyming paragraphs, little children can learn the words, quickly. Encouraging them to love reading by reading this book to you. The style of the writing (the rhyme scheme used) and illustrations (watercolors) renders the book adorable by any reader of any age. I liked the book and give it 5 stars.


From the jacket flap:


"Cumulative rhymes are reassuring - they soothe and amuse and stay with us throughout our lives. This gentle story about "a napping house" will do all those things. It's a simple tale - just a cozy bed, with a snoring granny, a dreaming child, a dozing dog, a snoozing - but wait! there's a surprise, a delightful surprise, in store, and the youngest listeners will want to hear it again and again.
Superb full-color illustrations bring the quiet moments and small scenes to life with variety and grace. They supplement the tale, filling in charming details that go beyond  the story and reflect a change in weather as well as in mood. Furry pets you yearn to stroke, floppy pillows, wet raindrops, and big, sleepy yawns, all convey the essence of rhymes and make them memorable.
Together author and illustrator have created a classic treasure for children and their children's children."
