FEATURED READ ALOUD
THE NAPPING HOUSE
By Audrey Wood
Illustrations by Don Wood

 

"

"A granny, a snoring granny,

on a bed in a napping house

where everyone is sleeping."

Or are they?

 

The Napping House is a cumulative tale about a cozy bed, a snoring granny, a dreaming child, a dozing dog, and a snoozing cat. One by one the characters snuggle up in a pile until a tiny unwelcome guest appears on the scene. With over a million and a half books in print The Napping House is a longtime favorite for many families.
