About the Author

Kim Crockett-Corson gathers much inspiration, laughter and joy from her preschool students and her delightfully lively daughter who sees the world with fresh, innocent eyes. She explains: Does this sound familiar to anyone? An energetic and independent little girl is determined to get ready for school all by herself -- while her parents fumble to get her through the morning ritual with minimal chaos? It sure is familiar to me: the inspiration came from my experiences with my daughter, who almost always wants to do everything by herself -- even if the result is incorrect, incomplete or worse yet...a downright fiasco. I wrote MY GOOD MORNING as a humorous story for all parents who have lived through these frenzied morning struggles. A native of Raleigh, North Carolina and an alumnus of N.C. State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Parks, Recreation & Tourism Management, Kim lives in Atlanta, GA. Jelena Brezovec (1980) was born in Varazdin, Croatia. She studied sociology and croatology at the University of Zagreb, and worked in these disciplines for a few years. For a long time, drawing was just a hobby of hers. But this changed in 2008, when she co-founded Evenio, a company specialized in online, print and digital publishing for children. Today, she works in this firm as an illustrator and a creative editor on projects such as activity books, picture books, mobile applications, digital books and handbooks. Jelena's work has been featured in various international exhibitions, and her personalized picture book Dance Recital won a National Indie Excellence Book Award in the category Specialty Books.

Reviews

A "new back-to-school picture book that deserve[s] an "A." ...Tired moms and dads will smile at this charming depiction of trying to get a 3-year-old out the door. And this tale, which features a tiny biracial heroine, is also a lesson in diversity." - Jocelyn McClurg, USA TODAY

"Cute debut." - Betsy Bird, Fuse Eight, SLJ blog

"The book shines! A simple story enhanced by its funny, gently ironic illustrations" - Kirkus reviews

"This cute story captures the feeling of trying to get toddlers and other very young children ready for daycare or preschool in the mornings. The girl's enthusiasm and positivity sets a good tone that may encourage those children who do have more trouble getting motivated in the mornings." - Kiss the Book reviews

"Isn't this cover precious! The story inside is just as sweet as it follows the morning routine of a little girl who is eager to accomplish things all by herself. It reminds me so much of my little, big boy that I pretty much smile through the whole thing. He gets a kick out of it as well seeing as it's one that is so easy for him to relate too. Check it out for a dose of cute." - Book Nerd Mommy

"The rhyming text is fun, with short sentences that allow for interactivity by asking kids about what they see in each spread. Ask kids about their morning rituals and notice how different each person's morning routine is. Pink argyle endpapers match the wallpaper in the family's home. This is a fun read for storytime, be it a back-to-school storytime, a family storytime, or a storytime about being brave." - Mom Read It blog

"A charming and humorous story about an independent little girl who wants to get ready for the day all by herself, The illustrations are boldly colored and energetic." - Tarryn Villarreal, reviewer

"A perfect little story about going to school - for those kids of yours who are about to go to school for the first time themselves." - Paul Phillips, bookseller

"Parents will get a kick out of this book as they will be able to relate. Always happy to see a diverse character in a kids book."- Tara Hutson, London Public Library

"An absolute delight. It's pitched nicely between been nice for a parent to read aloud or for an early reader to read to themselves. It provoked quite a few rueful giggles and has had my daughters ultimate seal of approval - she wants to read it again tonight!"- Patricia Doyle, DeJaRead

"The illustrations are perfect and the book is a great length for a short bedtime read. I would definitely consider buying this book for parents that are going through this familiar phase and I'm sure any child would also love the present too!"- Paris Taylor, The Bookworm News

"A lovely catchy read that is entertaining for both little ones and adults alike." - Patricia van der Lingen, Goodreads

"Delightful.... My oldest daughter just kept pointing to the pages and saying "WOW!" or giggling. Needless to say, her seal of approval was given. As a parent, I can definitely relate to her sleepy mom and dad. The little girl reminds me so much of my own little one so I can see why she enjoys this story so much. The only complain is that it isn't longer! Even I found myself wanting to keep reading it to my girls.I can't wait to buy it for their shelves." - Ashley Michelle, Goodreads

"Story would work for a lesson on point of view, also like the use of different fonts to highlight the child mood. Wonderful to see a multiracial family depicted in a story not about race or color."- Helen Prince, school librarian
