I'm so excited! My friend Wade's first picture book just came out, and I just received my copy in the mail from Amazon. It's called Why Do I Have to Make My Bed?, subtitled A History of Messy Rooms. Even if Wade wasn't my friend, I would have picked up his book when I saw it on the shelf based on title alone.
Even better, upon reading the book, Wade doesn't disappoint. The story is clever, humorous, and fun, sneaking a history lesson into its pages that adds to the reader's fascination. I recently saw Why Do I Have to Make My Bed featured in the book section at our local Gepetto's toy store, but it's also available at all the major retailers.
