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." - USA TODAY
“The book shines! A simple story enhanced by its funny, gently ironic illustrations” - Kirkus reviews
"Cute debut." - Betsy Bird, Fuse Eight, SLJ blog
I wake with my bed buddies. 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.
A funny picture book about the morning ritual of a little girl that can do everything by herself. Almost everything... For children ages 4 and up.

I received this ARC from Netgalley for an honest review.
This is a cute little book about a young girls morning ritual. She wakes up early ready to go but her parents are rather sluggish. She talks about brushing her teeth, getting dressed and having some breakfast. Her parents are moving slow, but she is ready to go. I think that 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.
"I wake with my bed buddies. 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"
Thus begins the story of a little girl raring to go....and her parents just wanting to go back to bed. Sound familiar? In my daughters words ( between giggles ) "Mommy has the lady that wrote this been to our house?". Well it certainly felt like it!
This is 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!
My Good Morning minds me of the parents I speak to on daily basis when they are dropping off and collecting their child from my nursery. The children are always wanting to do everything independently but are not quite there yet and the parents are exasperated as they need to leave so they won't be late. I certainly had a chuckle when reading this book as I'm sure many other parents will too. 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!
A lovely catchy read that is entertaining for both little ones and adults alike.
. Main character is confident and goes through a morning routine with her parents. 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.
