Book Reviews

"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.”


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.

The Nodders is sure to make the most recalcitrant napper shut their eyes in rest. A sweet tale of creatures who wake when little ones are sleeping. Only then can they jump up and slip rewards into a special NapPouch folded from the dust jacket. Charming and just what mom's need!
