Ages 1^-3. A small child reflects on where animals sleep and decides that the best place to nap is "right here on my grandma's lap." While the rhyming lines ("A patch of leaves suits three small mice, / and seals like snoozing on the ice" ) may not be convincing as a small child's words, the text is simple enough to suit a toddler's attention span and has enough mild humor to please a somewhat older sibling. The line-and-watercolor paintings add a certain charm to this simple, "naptime" picture book. Carolyn PhelanFrom School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K-A poetic paean to the perfect spot for a nap. The bouncy metre detailing animals in various snoozing poses is anything but soporific, so listeners will respond to the rhyming couplets. Sweet's double-page watercolors will be familiar to readers of James Howe's "Pinky and Rex" series (Atheneum). A pleasant effort that will appeal to the nap-taking set.?Rosanne Cerny, Queens Borough Public Library, NY
