No More Naps Extras

Book Trailer


“Preschoolers will find the defiant protagonist’s protests thrilling and 100% funny… Screamingly fun.
—Kirkus Reviews
“The idea that naps are opportunities to be eagerly seized is an amusing reframing.
—Publishers Weekly
“Known for the Mr. Lemoncello series, Grabenstein offers a mildly amusing tale of a strong-willed child who changes her mind, and Espinosa contributes a series of lively illustrations featuring expressively drawn characters.”
