Title: My Good Morning
Author: Kim Crockett Corson
Illustrator: Jelena Brezovec
Year: 2017 (Coming soon)
Disclosure: I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
My Good Morning written by Kim Crockett Corson and illustrated by Jelena Brezovec is the funny story of a cute and strong-willed girl getting ready for school on her own terms. "It's a new day and I'm ready to go! But Mommy and Daddy are so very slow", the girl points out. She wants to do everything by herself, but, of course, she still needs her parents' help to complete tasks such as dressing up. Parents are going to relate to this story because it portrays how children behave when they are becoming independent. Morning rituals can be quite an experience during this stage.
I give the book two thumbs up for depicting a blended family during an everyday happening because we need more books like that.
Brezovec's illustrations are witty, modern, and hilarious. They bring they story alive and are the best part of the book. The text is a mix of rhymes and prose, making it a bit confusing. Different fonts are used to emphasize the text. The story would have been better with a more effective arrangement of the rhymes and prose and using less fonts.
