"I'm not going to get up today" is a little known Dr Seuss story but it's an absolute gem that deserves to be wider known. It's a story of a boy who just wants to sleep in, declaring to his parents, the town and the whole world that he's not going to get up today, no matter what they try. Jason Alexander is a great narrator and gets the tone of the story just right, at every moment. I can't recommend this audiobook more. It's funny, it's sweet and the whole thing is marvellously accompanied by sounf effects and music that enhance the story perfectly.
So, have a sleep in, and, in honour, listen to his book as you settle down for a snooze.
'Oh the places you'll go' is an amazing book - it's uplifting, inspiring and leaves you feeling enthusiastic about the world and your part in it. This is a great book for children, to tell them that great things lie before them, and a wonderful book for young adults (and not so young adults) to tell them that their talents can lead them to places they never expected. John Lithgow reads this story so well, clearly and with a sense of fun as well as seriousness (when required).
This is an audiobook that you can listen to time and time again, and will never tire. You won't regret it - ninety-eight-and-three-quarter per cent guaranteed.
