Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1 Under a red striped blanket and several stuffed (and live) animals is a little boy who is being told ``Time to get up!'' From that moment the morning routine begins. Nothing is left out including his half fallen pajama bottoms as he hurries to the bathroom. The whole familyfather, mother, baby, and older sistervie for space at the bathroom sink. After struggling to get dressed for the day he must also get into his snowsuit, boots, etc., to go outside. The final picture shows him checking that he has everything. He doeshis toy bunny is inside his snowsuit with him. Going to Bed shows the young boy going through the routine in reverse. On the final page, the little boy back is in bed under the same red striped blanket (now muted), with his collection of stuffed animals, asking, ``Could I have a glass of water?'' Stylistic line drawings filled with bright colors will attract readers and visually move them through the child's morning or evening routine. Children will identify with the basic situations; adults sharing these books will smile a little, as well. Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, Iowa
