Young Reader Reaction: Every Boynton book gets a grand reception! The rhythm and fun pictures engage his/her attention.

Adult Reader Reaction: Boynton is always a favorite; her upbeat rhythm and silly rhyming words keep parents and toddler bouncing. The animal characters are engaging and provide opportunities for identification.

Pros: Amusing animals and rhyming words make this fun. The theme of getting up and starting the day is a good one for this toddler who is NOT a morning person!

Cons: None
