Summary
Mama says, NAP.
Baby says, NO NAP!

Baby wants to CLAP, DRINK, READ.... Anything but NAP!

Margie Palatini brings her signature humor to this rollicking sing-song read-along, inviting readers on a fast-paced chase through every room in the house as we follow Mommy on her quest to settle Baby down for nap. Dashing from family room to living room, both on the table and under it, through the kitchen and even hiding in the laundry basket, acclaimed artist Dan Yaccarino creates a hilarious romp in his signature retro style that culminates with mommy and baby collapsed - AT LAST -- fast asleep in a chair.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A large body of literature attests to the fact that the sleep schedules for young children and their parents are not always in sync. This amusing picture book considers naps (and differences of opinion about them) and a gamut of children's stalling techniques. The droll illustrations in simplified shapes and saturated colors portray Mama chasing Baby around the house, through the kitchen, in and out of laundry baskets, and finally into an overstuffed armchair for a cuddle, a book, and finally a nap. The entire narrative consists of dialogue in short, snappy, rhyming interchanges: No more drink, / no more song, / No more clap, /Time to nap! / Nap, no! / No nap! Babies and toddlers will enjoy the rhythm and upbeat tempo of the text, and the oversize font and repetitive phrases will encourage emerging readers to participate. Both children and adults will enjoy the humorous touches in the cartoonlike drawings. This would make a good companion to Kate Banks' Close Your Eyes (2002) and Audrey Wood's The Napping House (1984).--McBroom, Kathleen Copyright 2014 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In the four words of the title and page after page of gleeful mischief, Palatini (Stuff) and Yaccarino (Count on the Subway) sum up the eternal nap-time dialectic. This Mama and Baby may share the same exuberantly curly auburn 'do, but when Mama announces with endearingly mistaken confidence that it's naptime, Baby rejects the offer and leads her on a merry, blankie-toting chase ("Nap, yes, says Mama. Yes yes yes! Nap, no! No no no!") through their stylized, pastel-hued house. Baby is able to wrangle a song (a wonderful moment in which both mother and child channel their inner "Broadway Baby"), a "big, long" drink of milk, and a story before succumbing to shut-eye, by which time Mama is ready for a snooze, as well. The single plane, largely profile illustrations lend a quirky formal elegance to the chase and give Yaccarino plenty of opportunity to revel in his metier-the human body in comic motion. Mama's running form would make the winged-footed Mercury jealous. Up to age 3. Author's agent: Linda Pratt, Wernick & Pratt. Illustrator's agent: Rebecca Sherman, Writers House. (Aug.)
