Jimmy is reluctant to get out of bed, because some days at home and at school are good days but some are bad days

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Popular YA author Petersen's premier picture book features a young boy who can't seem to get out of bed in the morning. Jimmy just isn't sure what awaits him. Will it be a strawberry waffles or soggy cereal day? He thinks of the happenings that make some days "good" and others "bad," from school-bus rides to recess. Finally, his mother suggests that they make it a good day by starting off with a big hug. Children will relate to Jimmy's common concerns, and de Groat's now-familiar, realistic illustrations add to the book's appeal. The bright, double-page watercolors effectively portray regular people engaged in everyday activities. However, the story seems flat and lackluster-Jimmy's worries may be a little too ho-hum to warrant a second reading. Judith Viorst's Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (Atheneum, 1972) is still the best "one of those days" stories available. Overall, an adequate, but nonessential, purchase.
