Naptime Nanny Storybook CD Review

A recent addition to my daughters CD collection is this set of three Naptime Nanny CDs. Theres a cool story behind the creation of this collection of childrens stories for quiet time. It was a preschool teacher who first decided that a CD full of stories would be perfect for nap time some children were a little too old for sleeping during that time but would still benefit from rest. Music was nice, but stories had the best results. So Naptime Nanny came into existence and Im so glad!

I tested these out on my 3-year-old daughter, wondering if she would be able to concentrate on them. There are times throughout the day I try to have her play quietly in her room and music or stories on CD are the best way to keep her contented for periods of time. I was delighted to find that she was interested in each story and that it helped her to sit quietly for awhile. And shes THREE, did I mention that? This is a child who hates to sit still.

The stories arent simple narration. They have sound effects and music, adding to the charm and giving little ears more of a reason to listen. For instance, in the story The Grasshopper and the Ants (which, incidentally, you can listen to for free HERE), youll hear the sound of grasshoppers. I love it!

Needless to say, these CDs have made mommy happy theyre definitely worth having!

I can think of other great reasons to own these storybook CDs:

  • Theyre great for a distraction on long car trips
  • If your little one has trouble sleeping at night, it could be a great way to lull him/her to sleep
  • They would be great for a story time during a birthday party or sleepover

And, in my experience, kids love to hear the same stories over and over and over this could give you a break and make your children happy, too! 🙂

Buy it!

You can purchase the CDs for $15.00 each OR download the MP3s for $13.00.
