NEW Kids Picture Books: Day 13

A Perfect Day by Lane Smith 
February 2017. 32 pages.

From Amazon: "Today is a perfect day for Cat, Dog, Chickadee, and Squirrel. Cat is lounging among the daffodils. Dog is sitting in the wading pool, deep in the cool water. Chickadee is eating fresh seed from the birdfeeder. Squirrel is munching on his very own corncob. Today is a perfect day in Bert's backyard. Until Bear comes along, that is. Bear crushes the daffodils, drinks the pool water, and happily gobbles up the birdseed and corncob. Today was a perfect day for Cat, Dog, Chickadee, and Squirrel. Now, it's just a perfect day for Bear. Lane Smith uses perfect pacing and vibrant illustrations to emphasize the power of perspective in this hilarious picture book about the goings-on in Bert's backyard."

My thoughts: Sometimes we think our day is going great, then something happens to upset it all. I chuckled when the bear arrived on the scene. The illustrations in this book are very full of texture, adding interest to an otherwise very simple story. Don't forget to check out the picture on the back flap (where it describes the author).

Recommended Age: 4-8 years
