Petite Mouse Takes a Nap (Board book)
Sweet little Petite Mouse doesn’t want to nap (much like a child you probably know). With one tiny nose and two scurrying feet, she’ll slip through your fingers! But with a little help from little hands, you can make sure Petite Mouse gets some rest. With soft illustrations, a fun counting element, and finger holes for extra delight, Petite Mouse Takes a Nap is the perfect naptime book to turn wiggly fingers into sleepy eyes.
Karin is an actress best known for her role as Sonya Harper in the series Mama’s Family. She is also a freelance news journalist, an author, and the happily married mother of two daughters who never really loved nap time. It was always quite the undertaking to get them to fall asleep. But she knew how important it was for them, and would sometimes go through stacks of books and songs to get them to fais dodo, which means go to sleep in French. How she would have treasured a book like Petite Mouse Takes a Nap! She is a first-generation American and is proud of her family's French American citizenship. Her loving, wonderful parents were of French, German, and Lebanese descent, and she was raised hearing fairy tales, games, and songs from those countries. She, in turn, raised her daughters speaking French and immersed them in fairy tales, plays, and songs. She and her husband sent their daughters to Waldorf schools and raised them without television, their imaginations fed with storybooks, imaginative play, and puppetry. Petite Mouse Takes a Nap is her first children's book, but she has more in mind.
