Adorable board books enrich a toddler’s vocabulary.

In Nap Time, each page features a full-color photo of a familiar animal followed by a two-word text that includes the animal’s name and a verb to describe what the animal is doing, e.g. Leopard sprawling/ Bat dangling. At the end of the book, a young child is shown taking a nap. The rhythmic cadence of the text, the rich vocabulary, and the vivid photos are ideal for sharing with a toddler.
