Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-K-Any young child who has ever longed for just a few minutes more in bed will easily identify with Sam. After his mother finally gets him on his feet and makes sure he has chosen his clothes for the day, she leaves to get dressed herself. She returns later to find him under the covers. But surprise! He is really dressed and ready for breakfast. In the end, it is Sam who has to wait for mom. Like many of Russo's other stories, this one perfectly captures special moments between parent and child. Her stylistic illustrations, done in gouache paints, are large, uncluttered, and surrounded by generous white borders. While the text is brief, the illustrations present some important aspects of a morning routine for young children: dressing oneself, eating a good breakfast, brushing teeth. The alternating lines of text-blue for Sam and maroon for his mother-will help children see the changes in viewpoint and encourage them to role play the story. Use this title with Anita Riggio's Wake Up, William (Atheneum, 1987; o.p.) for a humorous look at what can sometimes be a trying part of the day.-Marianne Saccardi, Whitby School American Montessori Center, Greenwich, CT
Hazel Rochman
A boy and his mother play a game to get him out of bed in the morning and ready for school. Bright, clear gouache illustrations and a minimalist text show Mom trying to wake the sleepyhead, who wants just a few more minutes under the covers. She tries a good-morning kiss, she tickles his toes, and finally she coaxes him to wash and get dressed. Then while she's getting ready, he plays a trick on her: When she comes back, she finds him back under the covers--fully clothed. There are so many warm, cozy bedtime tales that it's nice to have an affectionate, teasing story about the start of the day, especially since the morning rush can be a trying time for even the most loving families.
