Description


Being on time is an art--an art most of families have yet to master. From spilling coffee to misplacing keys, we've all dealt with the many things that can derail our morning routines. This humorous depiction of chaotic mornings is oh, so true.

Kate and her two children, Nate, and his older sister, Maddie, have all overslept. How will they EVER make it to school and work on time dressed, fed, and organized?

Praise For…


"How refreshing to find a story in which a parent makes a mistake without being turned into a goonish caricature. Children need to know grown-ups make mistakes too; it helps validate their own trial-and-error trajectory. And Egan makes this point felt in an organic way, without pointing it out didactically. Yaccarino’s retro illustrations are charming and full of kick."--New York Times online

“This rhyming story humorously details the dreaded weekday-morning routine and its attendant chaos.”--School Library Journal

"...should garner knowing laughs from kids and grownups alike.”--Publishers Weekly
