    Well, since for some reason several people are being nice enough to like my non review, I ll just say there are probably several core books in any house that are read in the formative years when you are trying to figure out how to make the little urchins happy and or get them to sleep, books you wear out, ripped and torn and ragged, spattered with baby food and milk and vomit, books that are indistinguishable from your parenting years and this is one of mine, one I look back with a kind of swe Well, since for some reason several people are being nice enough to like my non review, I ll just say there are probably several core books in any house that are read in the formative years when you are trying to figure out how to make the little urchins happy and or get them to sleep, books you wear out, ripped and torn and ragged, spattered with baby food and milk and vomit, books that are indistinguishable from your parenting years and this is one of mine, one I look back with a kind of sweet longing, in spite of the fact there might at the time been partly desperation will he for the love of god not sleep But this is funny, silly, one of those where each occupant of a house piles on to the sleeping Gramma until the bed breaks see James Thurber s The Night the Bed Fell, and all Holy Heck children are involved here, now breaks loose No napping, henceforth, but certain smiles ensue.I stop to ask my three teenagers, playing Monopoly as I write this during the deepening Coronavirus crisis, and ask them, You remember The Napping House and they cry out Yes, I remember when the cat jumps on and screeches Everything is all peaceful and a cat goes to sleep on a dog and then a mouse The gnat bites the mouse that wakes the cat that wakes the dog and so suddenly no one is napping You know, it s a pretty good life after all Or can be

    The Napping House is one of Audrey Wood s and Don Wood s earlier children s books and is probably one of their most peaceful books ever written The Napping House was extremely popular back in the 80s for its numerous awards that it won which includes the 1984 New York Times Best Illustrated Children s Book, the 1984 Golden Kite Award from Society of Children s Book Writers and the 1984 American Library Association Notable Book for Children Audrey Wood s lyrical writing is at its best as s The Napping House is one of Audrey Wood s and Don Wood s earlier children s books and is probably one of their most peaceful books ever written The Napping House was extremely popular back in the 80s for its numerous awards that it won which includes the 1984 New York Times Best Illustrated Children s Book, the 1984 Golden Kite Award from Society of Children s Book Writers and the 1984 American Library Association Notable Book for Children Audrey Wood s lyrical writing is at its best as she narrates how all the family members are sleeping in the house only to be awakened by a wakeful flea Don Wood s illustrations are colorful and beautiful beyond all reason, especially when he draws the rain shower at the beginning of the book and he makes the sky look gray, which is extremely effective on the realism of this story as the characters look like real people Another advantage to Don Wood s illustrations is that his illustrations are humorous especially of the scenes where each family member bump into each other and their eyes popped out of their heads as they are surprised at being awakened by each other The Napping House is truly a masterpiece and because of Audrey Wood s creative verses and Don Wood s beautiful illustrations, this book is surely to capture the hearts of many young children I recommend this book to children ages three and up since it is simple to read and the situation is extremely simple to understand.Review is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog

    Well, this book grew on me Probably because my daughter insists on reading it every damn night Initially to me it just read like the There s a Hole in the Bottom of the Sea song, listing one thing after the other after the other BUT, this book is actually amazing and here are the reasons 1 All the synonyms for sleeping There s a snoring granny, a dreaming child, a dozing dog and snoozing cat in the napping house Yeah, I listed those from memory Like I said, Every Damn Night Maybe s Well, this book grew on me Probably because my daughter insists on reading it every damn night Initially to me it just read like the There s a Hole in the Bottom of the Sea song, listing one thing after the other after the other BUT, this book is actually amazing and here are the reasons 1 All the synonyms for sleeping There s a snoring granny, a dreaming child, a dozing dog and snoozing cat in the napping house Yeah, I listed those from memory Like I said, Every Damn Night Maybe she doesn t care about the words right now, but I love the idea of building her vocabulary and I hope that as she grows she will understand that for every thing she wants to say, there are many many ways of saying it.2 All the synonyms give the text a lyrical quality which is fun to read out loud Every Damn Night.3 There s so much happening in the illustrations The text is talking about the granny, but you can see the child is starting to wake up and then the next page he s made his way to granny s bed while the dog is stretching to join them on the next page It s a nice progression I need to figure out if the flea is in all the pictures or if it just makes an appearance when the mouse moseys over to sleep on the cat I ll check on that tonight 4 My daughter loves reading it Every Damn Night yep, the wakeful flea is in every picture making it s way to the cozy bed in the napping house where everyone is sleeping It s fun to find

    This is an Anglo Saxon version of sorts of the old Passover song, Chad Gadya In the Heeb version, God destroys the angel of death, who killed the butcher, who slaughtered the ox, who drank the water, that extinguished the fire, that burned the stick, that beat the dog, that bit the cat, that ate the goat In The Napping House, the wakeful flee bites the mouse, who scares the cat, who claws the dog, who thumps the child, who bumps the granny who breaks the bed The latter is joyously embraced This is an Anglo Saxon version of sorts of the old Passover song, Chad Gadya In the Heeb version, God destroys the angel of death, who killed the butcher, who slaughtered the ox, who drank the water, that extinguished the fire, that burned the stick, that beat the dog, that bit the cat, that ate the goat In The Napping House, the wakeful flee bites the mouse, who scares the cat, who claws the dog, who thumps the child, who bumps the granny who breaks the bed The latter is joyously embraced as an opportunity to celebrate the glorious day, watch the rainbow, and play outside In the Jewish version, we get constantly reminded that the dead goat cost our father 2 goddamn hard earned zuzim In the Anglo version, everyone naps first, and then wake up to run and play, while the Jews conclude our endless seder with Chad Gadya, thus saving the nap as best for last
