Making a NapPouch
Follow these simple steps to use your book jacket to fold your NapPouch!
1. Start with an 8 x 8" square sheet of paper arranged like step number one and fold the bottom point up to meet the top point.
2. Fold the top point down just above the bottom line and press to make a line across lift the point back up.
3. Fold the left corner across like this notice that the corner just touches the edge of the paper. (This is step #3 but image two above.
4. Fold the left-hand corner across. It should almost touch the right hand side of the pouch.
5. Fold the front top flap down, so that it covers the two flaps underneath.
6. Ta Da! Now use a hole punch or scissors to make a hole in the top triangle. Use a thin ribbon or piece of string to go through the hole and tie in a knot.
"I am buying this for everyone I know having a baby. We just went 2 days without a nap and she was exhausted. She cannot seem to shut her mind off. Seriously, I did not hear a peep. I have a few great trinkets that I keep, like a sticker. Anything becomes a treasure at this age.”
Sandy Stringfellow, retired educator of intellectually gifted and talented children
The Nodders shows how young children in imaginative ways are encouraged to nap using positive reinforcements. The author creates a poetic story where the rhyming words flow easily in solving the problem of getting children to rest.
Brian Schmidt’s illustrations are whimsical and colorful and do an excellent job in bringing the story to life. Since pictures support the beginning reading process, the visual and verbal expressions are easy to understand making the The Nodders a fun book. Possessing a treasure pouch is anothergood incentive to support a child’s quiet time.
