Description

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.
