It's Time to Take a Nap, by Harriet Zierfert, illustrated by Barroux

In their sequel (or perhaps it's a prequel) to It's Time to Go to Sleep, Harriet Zierfert takes a little boy across the countryside and back into the city, wishing a good morning to the cows and pigs, the grass and trees, the bus and the plane, and (in a deja vu moment) to the cars and the garbage truck.

It's Time to Take a Nap has the same style of colorful, child-friendly illustrations by Barroux as It's Time to Go to Sleep.  The little boy covers a lot of ground, pulling his wagon saying good morning to everyone, so by the time he's done, it's definitely "time . . . TO TAKE A NAP! (Why the all-caps?)  These two books together are fun, quick bedtime readings for nap or nighttime.

Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for the complimentary electronic review copy!
