This lovely book illuminates all the possibilities a day offers—the opportunities and chances that won’t ever come again—and also delivers a gentle message of good stewardship of our planet. Newbery Medal winner Cynthia Rylant’s poetic text, alongside Nikki McClure’s stunning, meticulously crafted cut-paper art, makes this book not only timeless but appealing to all ages, from one to one hundred.

"There is a faith in morning time, there is belief in noon."

Each day is full of possibilities and this book is such a great reminder that we can choose to find the happy in each day. I loved sharing that message with my children! We loved the pictures and simple illustrations that follow the day of child who makes the day count. There is a lot of focus on the illustrations because they are few colors used to draw away attention. The flow of the book is very complementary to the simplicity of the message and images. It is a read enjoyable for the whole family.

I love the durability of this board book. It will last in your library for a long time and you will want to read this book over and over again to get lost in the moment. You will definitely want to share this feel-good book!

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
