I Am Not Going to Get Up Today!

I Am Not Going to Get Up Today by Dr. Seuss is a perfect story to read to the young one who never wants to get out of bed in the morning, which makes it particularly fun if mom is trying get the child to day care or school. Fortunately, for this mom it appears to be a weekend or some other day where the child doesn't have to go anywhere. Simply, the boy decides to stay in bed. Now one can't imagine he's getting too much sleeps as he tells his mom and anyone who will listen all the things that the outside world can do to attempt to wake him, e.g. tickle his feet, pour cold water on his head, or bring in the U.S. Marines! Towards the end of the story, he's in bed with numerous people watching him. Finally, mom gives up and feeds his breakfast to a policeman whom also apparently came to attempt to wake him. Written in rhyme, I will have to say that this is one of the more enjoyable Dr. Seuss books I've read to date! Source: Library Book
