From the moment it’s Time to get up!” until it’s time to be tucked back in bed, a toddler’s day is filled with activity. And so is his doll’s. There’s time to swim in the wading pool, slide down the slide, and stop to look at a snail. Later, there’s time to sweep, time to take a bath, and time for a bedtime story. Meanwhile, this little boy’s parents keep as loving an eye on their son as he does on his doll.
David Milgrim’s simple rhymed text and his unique, childlike illustration style are perfect for beginning readers, who will find much to relate to in this story of how a little boy and his doll spend a busy day.
David Milgrim has created over a dozen books for children. His most recent book for Clarion is TIME TO GET UP, TIME TO GO. He lives with his family in Wakefield, Rhode Island.
"The matter-of-factness with which Milgrim treats his character's actions...stand[s] out. Cheery and cleanly composed." -HORN BOOK Horn Book
