I Will Take a Nap!

I Will Take a Nap!
Written and illustrated by Mo Willems

My rating: ★★★★

ISBN: 978-1484716304
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Date of publication: June 2, 2015
Age: 5 - 8

Themes: crankiness, naps, dreams, friendship

Gerald is tired. And cranky. He is sure a nap will help him feel better. Will Piggie be in his dreams? Or will Piggie keep Gerald from dreaming altogether? (Who knew a pig could snore so loud??)

Fantastic book from Mo Willems yet again! What I particularly appreciated about this one is that the story helps empower young kids. It helps them recognize feeling tired or cranky, and how making the choice to take a nap will actually help them. What is even more fantastic is the hilarious surprise ending. Which I won't spoil for you, of course. It did feel a little repetitive to me (which is great for early readers--don't get me wrong) but that did make it a bit more tedious than the other Elephant & Piggie books. Still highly recommended!

Find it at your library or on Amazon
