Tortoise wants to sleep during the winter. He keeps saying tortoises don't like winter. (Turtles actually do hibernate, but underground in muddy banks not trees). Every place he finds to sleep, he is disturbed by one if his friends and asked to participate in some type of winter activity. Tortoise is not happy about this and he keeps looking for a quiet place to nap. When he accidentally ends up on a sled going down a hill, he realizes how much fun it is and decides that some tortoises like winter. This is a cute, humorous story that little ones will enjoy. It touches on friendship as well as all the fun things you can do in the winter. I loved the illustrations. All of tortoise's "beds" are drawn in a fun way. I love his sign that appears in each picture. The other animals are drawn having fun and with great facial expressions. This is a great book for a kindergarten classroom or home library. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via netgalley.

A Loud Winter's Nap by Katy Hudson is a children's picture book follow-up to Too Many Carrots.

Tortoise is ready to settle down and sleep for the winter, but everyone else has different intentions! Follow along in the story to see if Tortoise ever get's his winter sleep.

We loved this book! It's a perfect short and simple story for young readers. The illustrations are so vibrant and detailed.

Thanks to Netgalley for sharing a copy of A Loud Winter's Nap with me.

Tortoise was trying to find a place to sleep for winter until Spring. Everywhere Tortoise went to sleep there were other animals taking part in wintery activities like snowball fights and making sleds. All of these noisy activities kept Tortoise from sleeping. However, in the end Tortoise ends up wanting to take part in the fun, winter activities with his friends.
This book teaches about winter and winter activities. The book also uses numerous onomatopoeia's to make the story engaging. ( )

Tortoise just wants to find a nice quiet place to sleep through the winter, he is cold and tired. Each place he chooses someone wakes him up....until

A nice flat surface to finally sleep on, but it is not a nice quiet place. Tortoise feels his bed begin to move, at first he is yelling, but by the end of the ride he is having a wonderful time. I don't think tortoise will want to sleep through any more winters.

Beautiful illustrations. ( )
