What a sweet, simple book all about the joys of a young bear and his mother waking up and getting started in a new day. The pictures remind me of books I read when I was a child — so innocent and comforting. In the end, everyone is up… except for one. Can you guess who? The artwork for this book was created with pencil, watercolor, and gouache.

Perfect book for morning people like me . . . haha. It reminds you of all the great things about morning-time. Also, it is nice to have a book to read when you wake up. There are so many children's books about bedtime. We need more books like this. ...more

Celebrate the beauty of the morning with Morningtown. from their watery beds to the top of the trees, all the animals are happily waking up. They nibble their breakfast and brush their teeth, everyone is up but one.
In this charming story of waking up, readers will watch all the animals starting their days, but what happens when one animal won’t get up? You will have to read to find out!
Simple words, along with detailed pictures, opens the door for beginning reading and interacting.

I loved that this book showed all the different animals and their "living arrangements." Because everyone is different ;) It talks about the morning routine. It's cute.

The simplicity with words makes this a good beginning reader. But it's......okay.
