The Full Moon at the Napping House

The Full Moon at the Napping House. Audrey Wood. 2015. HMH. 32 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: There is a house, a full-moon house, where everyone is restless.

Premise/plot: Remember The Napping House by Audrey Wood? This classic picture book at last has a companion book. The premise is simple enough. Every person in the Napping House is RESTLESS and can't sleep. Readers are introduced to the granny, a grandchild, a dog, a cat, a mouse, and finally a cricket. At first, it seems like sleep will never come...but then the cricket begins to sing his song....

My thoughts: I liked this one. I'm not sure I loved, loved, LOVED it. But it was quite pleasant and enjoyable. Both books--the Napping House and Full Moon at the Napping House--are easy to recommend to families looking for satisfying read alouds.
