How to have a perfect day--even when everything goes wrong. Yes, the art is beyond gorgeous. But to me, the most beautiful part of this book is the implicit acceptance of real-life mishaps and the love that shines through. This book holds truth.
I purchased this book for my 3-year-old daughter earlier in the year and we have really been enjoying it. My daughter especially loves that Ava, the little girl in the story, looks like her--with brown skin and dark hair. This book has a wonderful message that any child and parent will appreciate!
Family means we take turns lifting each other up. Mora’s book is a wonderful reminder that as parents we often lift our children’s spirits in the face of disappointment, and they will learn to return the favor. Beautiful illustrations full of details to explore together. 10/10
Even an off day is special (and can be salvaged) when you’re with someone you love. As a mom, I too have know the sadness when best laid plans for a special day with my kid doesn’t go right. This book had me teared up by the end. Such a beautiful story with great illustrations.
Love this book, about busy weekends with those things we "always" do and then the special things we so look forward to too. My kids and I can definitely relate to the go go go weekends and also the occasional wrench in our plans - and the gentle reminder that in the end the being together is what makes it special.
This book features beautiful, colorful collages that capture the mother/daughter moments of the story perfectly. I appreciate that this book shows how these characters handle disappointment with grace and love. This would be a sweet story to share with your kids!
As the mom, I loved this story. So sweet and hits upon experiences and people over things. Plus, the visuals are just so appealing. My daughter, who is four, liked it but it was clearly something I enjoyed more.
