Morning time means waking up. But sometimes it comes too soon! In this lively companion to Sheep, Sheep, Sheep, Help Me Fall Asleep, Arlene Alda's playful verse and original photographs explore a world of little ones who need some coaxing to open their eyes. But from the duck, cat, and calf in the yard, to the little boy in the house, there is always one thing that gets them trotting, galloping, or racing to greet the day.

I teach kindergarten and this is a great book that I can't wait to read to my new students when we start school in the fall. Great sense of rhyming words. The Peacock wakes up and makes a sound and this starts the other animals getting around. The boy gets up and races with his mom to get to breakfast. Characteristics of animals are woven into the boy getting up and ready for the day. A good descriptive book for young children.
