An enthusiastic baby squirrel and some grumpy forest friends collide in this sweet and funny picture book from Geisel Award Honoree Anne Hunter.
It’s morning time! And Baby is wide awake.
Baby is excited to leap.
Baby is excited to eat.
Baby is excited to see the other animals in the forest . . .
But are the other animals excited to see Baby?
One day, the owl gets frustrated and says some harsh words that cause Baby to hide away at home. And when Baby doesn’t appear, the animals realize something vital is missing from their morning . . .
