"'It’s time for a nap-a-roo,/ just like the kangaroo,' begins this nap-encouraging board book from first-time author Kurjan, which is built around rhymes with a long 'oo' sound. Readers learn that the kangaroo in question—who wears a striped neckerchief and carries a purple stuffed animal in its pouch—'lives in the zoo.../ In Timbuktu.../ With a dog named Lou' and other animals. While the rhymes aren’t especially imaginative, Parker’s cheery and polished digital cartoons show real talent, and the book maintains a sense of fun (including a 'Coo Coo Ka Choo' dance break) from start to finish."  —BookLife
