It all started when a loving mother posted a few pictures of her son, Beau, and their new puppy, Theo, napping together on her popular blog Momma’s Gone City. But these pictures were so “unbearably adorable” (The Daily Mail) and “utterly charming” (The Huffington Post) that it quickly became much, much more. By faithfully recording and sharing what Good Morning America calls “the most mesmerizing naps ever caught on camera,” Jessica Shyba and her family captured the hearts of people all over the world, and these beautiful images of friendship and trust have become an international viral sensation.
I’ve followed the Theo and Beau Instagram account for some time now, so when I had the opportunity to get an early copy of their picture book I jumped on it. I’m sure you’re familiar with Theo and Beau, too? An adorable toddler and an adorable puppy take naps together. It’s pretty much the cutest thing ever.
What Mom Likes:
The book is short and every page has an picture from Theo and Beau’s naps. It’s a simple but gorgeous little picture book.
What Finn Likes:
Finn pretty much likes everything. The whole reading experience revolves around Finn pointing to Theo and Beau on every page and asking ‘This?’. He loves the picture with Theo yawning the most.
I’m so happy to have Naptime with Theo and Beau in Finn’s little library. It’s such a cute, fun read.
