Rated 5 out of 5 by from A brand new day.... hurray!!!! This sweet book highlights scenarios that are happening around the world. An adorable little girl bounds out of bed ready for her day: "I wake up nice and early. I had a good sleep. Mommy and Daddy did not hear a peep. It's a new day and I'm ready to go! But Mommy and Daddy are so very slow." Sound familiar to anyone? Her sleepy parents corral her and see that she brushes her teeth, goes potty, gets wrestles into her clothes, sips some milk for breakfast and then it's off to school for her. With a hug and a kiss from mom and a fast buckle into the car seat by dad, she struts into school like she is a big, independent girl with her head held high. She is ready to take on the challenges and fun wrapped up in her upcoming school day. This book is written in rhyme and the illustrations are adorable. I love the diversity of children at the school and the strong family love that oozes through each and every page. Unconditional love reigns between each and every member. This is a perfect book to read and discuss with your little one as they start a new chapter of their life at school. I highly recommend it.

Editorial Reviews

A new back-to-school picture book that deserve[s] an "A." ... Tired moms and dads will smile at this charming depiction of trying to get a 3-year-old out the door. And this tale, which features a tiny biracial heroine, is also a lesson in diversity." - Jocelyn McClurg, USA TODAY "Cute debut." - Betsy Bird, Fuse Eight, SLJ blog "The book shines! A simple story enhanced by its funny, gently ironic illustrations" - Kirkus reviews "This cute story captures the feeling of trying to get toddlers and other very young children ready for daycare or preschool in the mornings. The girl's enthusiasm and positivity sets a good tone that may encourage those children who do have more trouble getting motivated in the mornings." - Kiss the Book reviews "Isn't this cover precious! The story inside is just as sweet as it follows the morning routine of a little girl who is eager to accomplish things all by herself. It reminds me so much of my little, big boy that I pretty much smile through the whole thing. He gets a kick out of it as well seeing as it's one that is so easy for him to relate too. Check it out for a dose of cute." - Book Nerd Mommy "The rhyming text is fun, with short sentences that allow for interactivity by asking kids about what they see in each spread. Ask kids about their morning rituals and notice how different each person's morning routine is. Pink argyle endpapers match the wallpaper in the family's home. This is a fun read for storytime, be it a back-to-school storytime, a family storytime, or a storytime about being brave." - Mom Read It blog "A charming and humorous story about an independent little girl who wants to get ready for the day all by herself,The illustrations are boldly colored and energetic." - Tarryn Villarreal, reviewer "A perfect little story about going to school - for those kids of yours who are about to go to school for the first time themselves." - Paul Phillips, bookseller "Parents will get a kick out of this book as they will be able to relate. Always happy to see a diverse character in a kids book." - Tara Hutson, London Public Library "An absolute delight. It's pitched nicely between been nice for a parent to read aloud or for an early reader to read to themselves. It provoked quite a few rueful giggles and has had my daughters ultimate seal of approval - she wants to read it again tonight!" - Patricia Doyle, DeJaRead "The illustrations are perfect and the book is a great length for a short bedtime read. I would definitely consider buying this book for parents that are going through this familiar phase and I'm sure any child would also love the present too!" - Paris Taylor, The Bookworm News "A lovely catchy read that is entertaining for both little ones and adults alike." - Patricia van der Lingen, Goodreads "Delightful... . My oldest daughter just kept pointing to the pages and saying "WOW!" or giggling. Needless to say, her seal of approval was given. As a parent, I can definitely relate to her sleepy mom and dad. The little girl reminds me so much of my own little one so I can see why she enjoys this story so much. The only complain is that it isn't longer! Even I found myself wanting to keep reading it to my girls.I can't wait to buy it for their shelves." - Ashley Michelle, Goodreads "Story would work for a lesson on point of view, also like the use of different fonts to highlight the child mood. Wonderful to see a multiracial family depicted in a story not about race or color." - Helen Prince, school librarian "
