Rate this:

One morning, Jamie Anderson finds he has a mysterious aversion to getting out of bed. His father is far away, driving his ice cream truck. Jamie's mother is sympathetic and gives him ice cream he asks for every day, but the situation is a little puzzling to them both. Jamie has no temperature, yet doesn't get any better. The doctor is called in and finds nothing wrong. The week progresses and Jamie continues to eat his ice cream, draw pictures and play with his cat and his racing cars. When his dad comes home, the mystery is solved: Jamie is overwhelmed about starting kindergarten.

The bond between father and son, and a child's step into a bigger world with its greater expectations, are themes handled with lively insight and humor by author Carol Meredith, while Lorrie Szekat's whimsical illustrations take us right into Jamie's little and too-big world.
