Synopsis

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.


From the Trade Paperback edition.
