A recent addition to my daughter’s CD collection is this set of three Naptime Nanny CDs.  There’s a cool story behind the creation of this collection of children’s 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 I’m 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 she’s THREE, did I mention that?  This is a child who hates to sit still.

The stories aren’t 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), you’ll hear the sound of grasshoppers.  I love it!

Needless to say, these CDs have made mommy happy – they’re definitely worth having!

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

  • They’re 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.
