The Lovereading4Kids comment

Everyone’s dreams are brought to life in this wonderful world of make believe as a child thinks of all the things she’d like to be - just for one day. A buzzing bee, a creeping crocodile, a bunny rabbit, a grizzly bear - there is something attractive about each of them but, in the end, maybe it is best just to be yourself! The delightful humour of this book infuses words and pictures alike.

You may not know that The Tate Gallery in London has a publishing arm and this is one of their children’s books. Other Tate titles we’ve featured to date include At the Seaside and Monday. The production value of each one is absolutely sensational. As a consequence they will be books to be passed down generations and will make the most fabulous gifts.

Synopsis

For Just One Day by Laura Leuck, Marc Boutavant

What child hasn't pretended to be a monkey, a bear, or a bumblebee? Each page of this enchanting book encourages young readers to let their imaginations run wild, while gently reminding them that in the end, the best person to be is themselves. This charming combination of endearing images and memorable and humourous rhymes will keep children entranced, again and again. Laura Leuck is the author of several popular books, including Jeepers Creepers: A Monstrous ABC , Santa Claws , and My Monster Mama Loves Me So . She lives in Florida. Marc Boutavant is an illustrator, graphic artist, and author of many popular titles including Around the World with Mouk . He lives in Paris.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
