William's Winter Nap by Linda Ashman - OPTIONAL

Ashman, Linda  William’s Winter Nap  Illustrated by Chuck Groenink  PICTURE BOOK  Disney Hyperion, 2017.  $17.99  Content: G.  

William is getting ready to snuggle in for a nice long nap.  As he is about to go to sleep, a squirrel taps on the window and asks if William has room for him.  William lets the squirrel in, and not long after a porcupine, badger, and raccoon.  But when a bear comes, the animals disagree on whether or not there is enough room.  Eventually they let the bear in because it is cold and they all sleep soundly.  

The illustrations in this book are adorable and the story line is predictable which can be fun for younger readers.  I read a similar book recently called The Lumberjack’s Beard and it was more entertaining, but this is a good going to bed story.  It is written as a rhyme which makes for a fun read-aloud.
