Book Review - William's Winter Nap

William's Winter Nap

About the Book
Just when William is ready to fall asleep in his cozy cabin, there is a tap on his window. A chilly chipmunk asks to stay, and Will scooches over in bed. "There's room for two--I'm sure we'll fit." The chipmunk is just the first in a parade of mammals, each bigger than the last, until the bed is full. Then a note is slipped beneath the door: "Do you have room for just one more?" William tugs the door to see who's there . . . only to find a great big BEAR! Is there enough space to spare? Will the other animals be willing to share?

Kids will delight at each new guest's arrival and enjoy counting along as the animals keep scooching over to fit in William's bed. Linda Ashman's clever rhymes set up each page turn with suspense and humor, and the expressions on Chuck Groenink's characters are perfect. This is must reading for the dark time of year when everyone wants to hibernate!

My Take on the Book
This was a wonderful book that flows very smoothly with great rhymes, some suspense and even some humor too. The illustrations were so fun and they really draw you into the entire story. All of us have felt like we need a nap from time to time, and definitely for me in the winter when everything is grey, you feel like sleeping a lot and this story will really resonate!
