William Wakes Up, by Linda Ashman

Happy Book Birthday to WILLIAM WAKES UP, by Linda Ashman and Chuck Groenink!  It's a darling combination of THE LITTLE RED HEN and TEN LITTLE MONKEYS JUMPING ON THE BED.

"On a quiet morning,
sleepy and still,
William looks out on
a moss-covered hill.

He hears a faint and distant tune,
and says, "My friend will be here soon.
it's been a long and wintry wait--
we need a cake to celebrate!"

Expressive illustrations combine with the rhyming and lyrical text to make a delightful and whimsical read aloud. The premise of celebrating Spring with some spring cleaning, a cake, and a party with the birds is super fun--perfect read aloud for a wintry day when we need a little sunshine in our lives!
