Now that Eddie can get ready all by himself, his morning routine is anything but ordinary!
[ ] wake up (with a megaphone)
[ ] get dressed (up in a costume)
[ ] pack a snack (a watermelon's perfect)
[ ] find something for show-and-tell (No, not the TV!)
[ ] run like mad to catch bus!
With understated humor and uproarious illustrations, David Milgrim's first checklist book gets you to school on time, and in a great mood.
Eddie's a cheerful character who is excited about getting ready for school. He wakes and creates his very own checklist for getting ready, complete with drinking root beer while watching cartoons, putting a whole watermelon in his lunch, and trying to sneak out the door with his cat in his backpack. Despite the fact his mother doesn't approve of things, Eddie successfully gets himself ready all by himself.
This is a surprisingly humorous read and I enjoyed the laughs that ensured with my kids. I'd recommend this for ages 4 & up. Please note, if you read this before bedtime it might take a little bit for the giggles to die down.
