Time To Get Up by Gill McLean features Anna, a mixed-race child and her parents in this tale about getting up for school.
When there's a new baby in the house, parents somehow get by with very little sleep. Anna's dad isn't at his best after a disturbed night, but he know he has to get himself and Anna to school on time. He can't understand why she's in no rush...
What is particularly endearing about Time To Get Up is that it focuses on Anna and her father. It is refreshing to see a book that features a mixed-race child with her black father, which challenges the stereotype that mixed-race children grow up without their fathers around.
