Francine does not want to get up today.
And she doesn't want to get dressed.
And she doesn't want to eat breakfast.
And she doesn't want to go to school.
And once she gets to school, she certainly doesn't want to sing or recite or draw or even go to recess.
But Francine's day soon works its magic (with a little help from Francine's teacher and Francine's mother and even grumpy Francine herself), and when night time arrives, Francine doesn't want to go to bed, either!

Anna Alter is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. She lives in Boston and works as a designer of children's books. This is her first picture book.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K-Francine does not want to do what's expected of her, but she does it anyway, without any fuss. She gets up, dresses, and goes to school. Once there, the little fox does what she is supposed to until it is time to go home, where she gets a big hug from her mother. Francine keeps busy until bedtime, and even though she doesn't want to go to bed, she does. Uncluttered, pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations in soft hues contribute to the low-key mood of the story. There is neither conflict nor drama, just a matter-of-fact presentation of a youngster's day. Most children will relate to it.
