It's dark and quiet.
The moon still glimmers in the sky.

While the baker, the ferry boat captain, and the TV anchorman are busy at work, most people are cozily snuggled in bed. Then dawn's first light peeks through the tree branches. Wake up, city! There is much to be done in neighborhoods all across the metropolis. As the morning gets brighter, the city streets bustle with people ready to begin the day. GOOD MORNING, CITY, by morning news anchor Pat Kiernan, is sure to start the day off right.

Review quote

Stylized illustrations with an animated feel combine with clear, straightforward text replete with urban sounds to describe morning dawning in the city. The book reveals the quiet mysteries of what happens before children are out and about as the day moves forward and people begin to go about their everyday lives...Notable for its portrayal of women and men of different colors in both nontraditional and traditional occupations, this selection provides a direct, realistic depiction of a typical urban morning. A fine addition to the waking-up shelf. Kirkus Reviews"
