Slippers does not like naptime. There is too much for a puppy to do instead of sleep. Before he can settle down, he has to collect a few things. One by one he finds Edward's shoe, Laura's cap, and Daddy's work glove-all of which smell like them-and puts them in his little house. When it's time to go for a walk with Mommy, Slippers is too tired. Now, finally, Slippers is ready for naptime. Full of rambunctious play and inimitable personality, Slippers will win over children's hearts as he helps them learn to read.

Andrew Clements is the author of such popular novels as Frindle and Things Not Seen.From Booklist:
PreS-Gr. 1. A dog's work is never done. There are shoes to sniff, caps to chew, things to bury in the garden, and bugs to follow. Who has time to nap? In this endearing, moment-by-moment account of a dog's day, Slippers does everything but nap, a phenomenon that will resonate equally with restless human pups and their parents. Naptime distractions abound, particularly the tantalizing whiffs of various family members: "But it wasn't Edward. / It was just Edward's shoe. / But it smelled very nice--like Edward." Is it any wonder that by the time Slippers actually does get a chance to go for a walk, he's so exhausted he must nap? Bynum's colorful, cartoonish illustrations are interspersed with short lines of text, making this slight-but-charming picture book a good choice for early readers as well as listeners. Karin Snelson
