Kate is a single mom who is woken up by her preschooler, Nate. They are running late again! They struggle to get ready in time as they eat breakfast, feed the cats, pack their lunches, brush their teeth, and more all in the nick of time! Nate slips and falls on accident, but a kiss from mom makes it all better. When the streets are practically empty and the school yard is bare, they suddenly realize that it is Saturday!

Children will enjoy the rhymes found on every page spread. The clean lines and bright illustrations will have children analyzing every inch of every page! Parents will understand the tense face and baggy eyes of Kate that become more and more apparent throughout the book. This book includes a child who is in preschool and another child who is eight-years-old, making this book a good one for children preschool to second grade.
