A wordless book of a child’s journey home.  Look carefully at all the “treasures” she finds and shares.

Great for bedtime.

This book has a limited vocabulary.
On its surface, it teaches opposites.
But each opposite has such interesting illustrations, that stories can be imagined on every page.

The Napping House was published in 1984!  It’s been a great favorite every since.  This year brought a sequel to settle down a restless household at night.
