Aiden is tired and all he wants to do is take a nap. But there is noise everywhere inside his house and out. It's noisy at the library, noisy at the park, noisy no matter where he goes. Find out if he ever gets any quiet in "Can I Just Take a Nap?" by Ron Rauss.

"A Little Book of Slime" by Clint Twist is a photo panorama of bugs and plants that ooze slime. There are things in water, on land, in people, and more. All of the descriptions are accompanied by color photos that will delight youngsters who just can't get enough of gooey, drippy, oozy slime.

"Busy Builders" by Roxie Munro features eight tiny creatures who are builders. Learn about the homes they build. One builds a house that looks like cotton candy. Another has separate areas for their babies and trash, while yet another makes a house that looks like a big football. Fun to know about these creatures and what they build.
