A rhyming picture book about a little girl who usually wakes up grumpy and refuses to get dressed. This is a topic that many young children can identify with and they appreciate the mother's creative solution. Young listeners especially enjoy playing along and making all the crazy faces.

Clara Ann Cookie's mom comes up with a clever way to distract her daughter from complaining while getting dressed. Silly book to share with young readers. Be sure to ask them to make the same faces that Clara Ann is making on each page.
