Greet the new day with the adorable animal families of Morningtown in this sweet, classically inspired picture book!

Welcome to Morningtown!

In Morningtown, animal families of all shapes and sizes are waking up to a shiny new day. They get up out of fluffy beds, hard beds, and secret beds. They hop, splash, and flutter through their morning routines, getting ready for whatever the day holds.

One thing is certain--every day is a beautiful day in Morningtown!
