Wakes a sleepyhead.

It’s morning! Time for Sam to get ready for school. After a sniffy-whiffy eat-up and a splashy-flashy wash-up, Sammy’s off into the busy-whizzy wildness of a Monday morning.

With colorful illustration and rhythmic text filled with all sorts of phrases like "giggly wiggly" , "tickle pickle" and "splashy-flashy wash up" we see a young boy wake up on a Monday morning and then follow him through his day. The kids loved the escaping rabbit in his class room. Not an easy read aloud however as I found myself having to enunciate the odd phrases very carefully.

Brighten the day of your preschoolers with this fun, languge twisting book. Nancy White Carlstrom express and describes a child's day in a very delightful way. And if you are the parent reading - be careful not to tie your tongue in knot!
Okay book. The rhyming could be good to teach children and it was kind of silly, but mostly I was kind of annoyed by it, even though it was kind of cute.
Really, really fun book to read! The rhymes are fun for baby & the rhythm is great!
I read this book to one class, who enjoyed the tongue-twisting reading.
