Getting Mama ready for the day can be a challenge… you’d better watch out that she doesn’t sneak back into bed, try to distract you with cuddles, or… wait, is Mama watching TV?! Even the most reluctant risers will find the fun in the morning routine with this playful role-reversal story about a mama who just doesn’t want to get ready!

Industry Reviews
In this tremendously funny role reversal picture book from Sharon Giltrow and Arielle Li, Mama needs all the help she can get. She even struggles to keep all her breakfast inside the bowl, opting to tip it all over herself, causing yet another change in the morning routine!

Sure to be a favourite in houses around the globe as everyone recognises that repeated phrase '5 more minutes'. Get Ready, Mama! is already a term that has caught on in this household, at least!
