    One thought on “I am Not Going to Get Up Today!

    1. Jean

      Theodor Seuss Geisel was an American writer, cartoonist and animator, best known to us for his children’s books. More than sixty of them were published under his pen name of “Dr. Seuss”, some of them the most popular children’s books of all time. They have sold over 600 million copies and been translated into more than 20 languages. “Dr. Seuss” was indeed a phenomenon. Although he devoted most of his life to writing children’s books, “Dr. Seuss” had no children of his own, sayi [...]

      This lesser known story has to be one of my favorite books by Dr. Seuss. I was thrilled when my son grabbed it from the shelf today. It is a silly story that my children actually quote snippets of from time to time. Who can resist a story about a boy who is adamant about sleeping in? I live vicariously through that kid every time I read this book. I suspect I always will.

    3. Archit Ojha

      I can very well imagine my kids reading this book to me and making it their favorites! Because it involves a boy who doesn't like to get up, no matter what!As usual, Dr. Seuss books are a delight to read and re-read!

      Once again a top-notch book by Dr. Seuss and this time with superb illustrations by James Stevenson.It reminded me of my summer holidays in Calcutta when I used to sleep until 10 am or 10:30 am and it used to drive my eldest sibling mad. But the boy in "I am NOT Going to Get Up Today!" beat me at my game by totally refusing to get up.His mother makes his favourite breakfast comprising of a large boiled egg and takes it to his room on a tray like hotel room service. However, it is no use. His sib [...]

      Dr Seuss - what happened, man? Compared to Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs/ Ham this is second-rate to put it politely. No story, weak concept, bad lazy message for the kids, lack of creativity. Probably paid you too big an advance. Capable of much better, mate!

    6. ZebraPrintRocks

      My daughter didn't enjoy the book at all - the illustrations on the other hand, did keep her turning the pages.It's a relatable enough book, but I believe the execution left something to be desired. Yes, of course there were rhymes, and that was probably the only thing that kept my daughter engaged reading it.I was actually surprised how well she sounded out the "places" in the book that were mentioned. But, for a more novice reader, I could see that really getting annoyingoh so many hard words! [...]

      What I think about this book is that this man does not want to wake up.This man does not want to wake up even when every body tried to wake him up.The first part that happened in the book is that the mans alarm rang and the man did not wake up.When the women came in too give the man breakfeast the women noticed that the man was not awake.When some kids game in the mans room they tried waking the man by making noises.A little boy put ice cubes in a bucket and the little boy splashed the bucket on [...]

      I am not a huge fan of this book in any shape or form. The book was shocking to me because it isn't like any of the other Dr. suess books. The little boy that refuses to get up is sort of rude about it. He refuses to get up but isn't really nice about it, no matter what his mom and sister did to get him up he still refused. I feel like this is such a negative message to portray to kids. That you can just stay in bed all day no matter what. The illustrations in my opinion aren't very good either [...]

    9. Laura Mincey

      This is a hilarious story told by the classic author Dr. Suess about a little boy who refuses to get out of bed. The book goes on to tell the reasons why the boy would rather stay in bed then get up and eat his breakfast and go to school. It doesn't bother him that the children across the country are getting up and going to school--he's just not getting up for anything! This would be a great read when things in the school year are getting dreary and students are sleepy. After reading this book, [...]

      This gets 5 stars on general principal. My mother got it for me as a present because the main character of this story and I have so much in common. I was especially happy with the ending as (view spoiler)[the boy never does get up. I was worried that he'd spend the whole book explaining how he wasn't getting up for anything, just to rise at the end. Nope! He means it! And that is exactly how a book like this should end. (hide spoiler)]

    11. Lucetta

      I think it's a fun story to read on the weekend or any day really. Personally I think my favorite part of the book is when all the characters tried just about everything to wake up this little boy but it just doesn't seem to work.

    12. Alyn

      I didn't really like the rhyming in this book. They used some places that my 5 year old has never heard of and it didn't help that they were long names too so he had a hard time reading it. He still liked it though, maybe because he can relate so well to the boy in the story.

    13. Jaimie

      Without the whimsical perfection of Dr. Seuss' artwork to pair with his amusing rhymes this book falls quite flat, even though the concept of a child who won't get up for anything could have gone far. Seuss introduces a myriad of motivations - from big brass bands to the police - but unlike the no limits approach to fantasy that is apparent in his other work he ground this story solidly in reality. Obviously this method will create a realistic connection with stubborn sleepy children, but it doe [...]

      This book is about a boy who refuses to get out of bed on this particular day. He goes on to describe every thing that would possibly get him out of bed but today will not. It has great illustrations and is relatable to young children. I would use this book to start a discussion about what students wouldn't get out of bed for. I would have students illustrate what they come up with.

    15. Arwen

      I can clearly empathize with the main character, there are some days I just don't want to get up either. But I afraid that I would not be able to stay in bed after all the hubbub. A funny and witty book that we laugh all the way through.

    16. Holli

      I'm not getting up today either. Though I have a hard time picturing someone calling in the cops for one not waking up. A doctor maybe, but the police?

    17. Chloey Jones

      A young boy is to comfortable with his arrangement in bed that he decided he simply doesn't want to get up. Anger and annoyance spreads fast across the town as all efforts are made to get the boy out of bed. In attempt to get him up he is offered a wonderful breakfast, ice cold water on his face, bringing in the police, hiring a brass band and many more tricks people had up their sleeve. After so much effort on everyone's part and people worrying that the boy won't get up they finally decide to [...]

      I am Not Going to Get Up Today, is a book about a boy that just won’t get out of bed. No matter how hard anyone tries, they will always fail to succeed. As the reader reads they will have fun with all the rhyming words on every page. I really enjoyed this book and have added it to my own personal library. I believe it will help my future children and students to practice their rhyming as well as their reading.The illustrations match the text perfectly allowing the reader to see exactly what is [...]

      Parents need to know that kids will find a comrade-in-sleep in the hero, who sticks to his bed.From commonsensemediaKirkus Reviews (1987)After an eight-year interval, a Beginner Book by this well-loved originator of the series is welcome; and since Seuss hasn't chosen to illustrate it himself, we are lucky to have Stevenson as alternate. In the familiar Seuss pattern of a simple premise exaggerated to comic effect, a boy declares, "My bed is warm. My pillow's deep. Today's the day I'm going to s [...]

    20. Michael Koreis

      I am Not Going to Get up Today is a story about a young boy who refuses to get out of bed in the morning even through all the crazy events that happen around him. From tickling his feet to a huge marching band he stays in bed no matter what the world throws at him. This book was a great read and the fun rhyming will really help engage young children and hopefully plant an interest for poetry. I would suggest this book to anybody who wants a quick and easy read. The pictures in this story also ma [...]

    21. Haley Stacy

      This book by Dr. Seuss falls into the poetry category. This book can be read by first and second graders, because it does have some bigger vocabulary words. This book may be able to be used for a geographical lesson due to the mention of cities, states, and countries. The content is good, but may be concerning to some parents because of the way the boy speaks about not wanting to get up could be portrayed as rude or disrespectful. The story "I Am Not Going to Get Up Today" tells us about a boy t [...]
