Angela Whitende: “I can’t explain how much my three-year-old daughter Kiana loves “Naptime Secrets.” She enjoys looking at the pictures and at times I even hear her making up her own stories to go along with the pictures. She has taken that book everywhere with her. It warms my heart to see my child so excited about reading. “
Rita Seaman: “My 2 ½ year old grandson is enjoying it before his nap. It speaks to the enchanted world of children.”
