This book is about a puppy named Slippers. He doesn’t like to take naps. But he gets in a lot of trouble; he didn’t help. When he goes in his doghouse he first closes one eye and then the other eye because he doesn’t want to fall asleep.
My favorite part of the book was when Slippers went outside to help Mommy. He wasn’t helping; he was digging up the garden! I like the pictures in this book they are cute. This book made me really happy, it is so funny. It was easy to read for me.
I immediately fell in love with this little puppy Slippers. The illustrations are precious and the story is really creatively told. This isn’t your average dog tale. My daughter openly laughed and giggled at the trouble this little guy was finding in “Naptime for Slippers” by Andrew Clements.
