When a small girl awakens early in the morning, she finds that "Everything is quiet. Everyone is sleeping." She tiptoes from room to room observing the sleeping dog and cat, sleeping baby and Mama and Papa, before she fulfills her early morning duty of waking everyone up. The figures in the textured, sunrise-colored acrylic paintings are subtly outlined in red, skillfully evoking the mood of a household on the brink of wakefulness.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
