Oliver wants his mother to play with him. But when his mother checks her must-do list posted on the refrigerator door, she discovers the morning is filled with many things to do, such as laundry, ironing, grocery shopping, and other chores. So, Oliver goes off to play by himself. A similar exchange occurs when Oliver tries again later that day. So, on the following morning, Oliver presents his mother with a must-do list of his own: tell a joke, drive a race car, build a fort, count the stars, and find the Big Dipper. That's when Oliver's mother gets to work--and the fun begins.
