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!

. 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.

A funny picture book about a little girl’s morning routines. She’s up, ready to go, and can do every task herself without any help from her parents! Parents will laugh as they recognize themselves and their children in this story.
