We Don’t Feel Like It is the story of twins Mickey and Beady. The energetic seven-year-olds wake up one day and decide that they don’t want to go to school. Why? Because they don’t feel like it, of course! Mickey and Beady soon get more than they bargained for as their mom shows them what it means to shirk responsibilities. A funny, entertaining picture-book for young readers that shows the importance of being responsible.
This is a charming story that children of all ages will love. Readers will identify with the twins that decide they don’t want to go to school. They quickly learn that there are consequences when you shirk responsibilities. Illustrations are adorable and deliver a message with a powerful punch.

We Don’t Feel Like It by Ron MacCloskey was a neat little story! The story is written in very straightforward, easy to understand language and got straight to the heart of the matter. I think that the story is well suited to young children; parents may be very grateful that their kids might learn something from it.

In his new book “We Don’t Feel Like It”, Author, Entertainer, Historian, and Philosopher par extraordinaire, the inimitable RonMacCloskey, hits it “out of the park once again” with this unique and enjoyable parable about the importance of learning personal responsibility, self-discipline, and the importance of performing life’s required tasks day-in and day-out, whether a student or an adult, whether one “Feels like it or not” and the consequences of “not”!!!
