    I received a free copy of this book through the goodreads giveaway This is my honest opinion and is in no way affected by thisMy 7 year old daughter read this book to me It was great Perfectly appropriate for her easy enough for her to read plus is rhymed Me and my daughter thought the pictures where just beautiful and the story teaches an important lesson about helping out

    William Wakes Up is a cute rhyming story about a little boy and his animal friends Winter is over and because everybody's been napping for so long there's lots to do William has a very special guest arriving so he needs to take care of a few things A cake needs to be baked the house needs to be cleaned and decorations need to be put out As William asks for help his friends pull themselves out of bed one by one and take on a specific task But there's still to do which leads to a bit of resentment directed at the one animal who'd rather just nap Eventually though even this lazy friend realizes that he needs to do his part and everyone enjoys the celebration and the new spring with the special guestThe rhymes and meter are surprisingly good here although it's a little bit sad that it's so surprising; I think that says something about the uality of rhyming picture books overall There are repeating refrains and a countdown of the animals which young children will probably enjoy Groenink's pictures complement the story well Although I'm not a particular fan of his work the illustrations here are fairly cute and will appeal to those who like a bit of whimsy in their picture booksOverall this is a nice celebration of spring and friendship along with a little lesson about helping out and doing your share of the work especially if you expect to enjoy the fruits of all of that labouruotable moment

    William and his animal friends whose story began in author Linda Ashman and illustrator Chuck Groenink's William's Winter Nap return in this second picture book romp this time welcoming a special guest whose arrival marks the coming of spring The rhyming narrative here begins On a uiet 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 Soon the young boy is enlisting snoozing friend after snoozing friend to prepareA fun read aloud text is paired with bright appealing artwork in William Wakes Up which than lives up to its predecessor in terms of story time appeal There are echoes here of the story of The Little Red Hen although here the friends all eventually do contribute when roused to the task by William Even Raccoon who resists to the last is given the chance to redeem himself and included in the party rather than being punished Recommended to readers who enjoyed William's Winter Nap and to those looking for engaging new children's stories about welcoming spring

    Eually as adorable as William's Winter Nap

  5. Mary Lee says:

    Fun rhyme and repetition One by one the animals get up and help bake a cake echoes of Five Little Monkeys except for raccoon echoes of Little Red Hen Great for a read aloud with littles to welcome spring

  6. Claudia Pham says:

    Such a darling book as we watch each animal wake up for spring time I especially enjoyed reading this book out loud to hear the playful and bouncy rhyme that Linda Ashman wrote out for us This book is sure to get us excited for springtime to come around the corner

    This book is a seuel to William's Winter Nap published in 2017 Both books showcase rhyming text and the counting of animals In book #1 animals are added to the bed for a long winter nap However in book #2 the animals are subtracted from the bed one at a time AND in a different order than they were added Further there's one sneaky animal who might be pretending to be asleep while all the others take care of the workThis story could be used with children to supplement a discussion of hibernation the start of spring additionsubtraction the importance of everyone lending a helping hand or even comparingdiscussing the change up in order of animals between the two books The softly colored artwork was created with pencils and PhotoshopFor children's literature middle grade literature and YA literature reviews feel free to visit my personal blog at The Miller Memo
