I can hardly imagine a parent¬†online today who isn’t familiar with the huge viral success of Theo and Beau. This¬†gorgeous photo series comes from our friend and fellow mom Jessica Shyba, who¬†has lovingly documented the daily naptime ritual of her toddler son¬†and their rescue puppy who cuddle¬†together every day. Can you think of anything more made for Instagram than that? Well, now it’s made for the printed page too, with the launch of¬†Naptime with Theo and Beau, the most adorable board book for kids maybe ever.

Seriously, the creepy old lady whispering hush has nothing on these two.

I was lucky enough to get a look at some¬†early galleys a while back and¬†it’s so exciting to see how it’s all come together.

Naptime with Theo and Beau | now a book for kids

What’s really special is not just that you can feel the love between child¬†and his dog, but a mother’s love, right through the camera lens. Not that toddlers and preschoolers will catch that. They’ll just think it’s soooo cute, as my kids would say.¬†Isn’t that the sweetest Valentine’s Day gift for a kid? And hey, if it gets them to want to nap more, maybe it will end up being a great gift for you too.

Preorder¬†¬†Naptime with Theo and Beau¬†now on Amazon so you’ll have it in time for Valentine’s Day!¬†And follow Jessica Shyba on Instagram¬†whose photos now include her brand new baby, Evangeline.¬†You’ll swoon.¬†
