When Jessica Shyba began taking photos of her sleeping son and new puppy, she never imagined they’d go viral. Theo and Beau became an internet sensation, with over 540,000 fans on Instagram. Now they’re back in board book form, with a story of enduring friendship and love.
Naptime with Theo & Beau is available at booksellers worldwide. During the month of February, you can request a free bookplate signed by Shyba, with a special message from Theo (dog) and Beau (cute kid).
Theo and Beau recently welcomed little sister Evangeline into their nap space, and while she doesn’t show up in the book, you should definitely check out new photos on Instagram. They’re so cute it may cause spontaneous squealing or hormonal tears.
The cool thing about Naptime with Theo & Beau is that Theo was a rescue dog from the SPCA. If you buy this book for your kids (or, who are we kidding here, for yourself), make a point of talking about rescue pets with your family. The book is only $10, so maybe you can toss a few bucks or some gently used towels to your local animal shelter. Not every rescue pup will become a viral superstar, but every one needs your love and support.
