Francine does not want to get up today. And she doesn't want to get dressed. And she doesn't want to eat breakfast. And she doesn't want to go to school. And once she gets to school, she certainly doesn't want to sing or recite or draw or even go to recess.
But Francine's day soon works its magic (with a little help from Francine's teacher and Francine's mother and even grumpy Francine herself), and when night time arrives, Francine doesn't want to go to bed, either!
