Reviews

An almost perfect picture book ....It must be said: Kevin Henkes is a genius. -- New York Times Book Review Deeply satisfying. ...Henkes's illustrations...speak volumes through simple details, managing to express pure joy in just the arched shape of an eye or the angle of an ear. ... A Good Day is the rare example of near-perfection in a picture book. -- Horn Book (starred review) A masterpiece, an almost perfect picture book.... It should be said: Kevin Henkes is a genius. -- New York Times Book Review This begs to be read again and again. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review) A deceptively simple picture book, expertly tuned to the emotions and imaginations of young children. -- Booklist (starred review) A glorious celebration of the simple joys of childhood. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) A simple picture book, expertly tuned to the emotions and imaginations of children. -- Booklist (starred review) A fine choice for the lap set. -- School Library Journal (starred review) There is real resonance in this tale, rooted mostly in the suggestion that bad days can turn into good days on a dime.... This begs to be read again and again. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books Sublimely simple. -- Washington Post Book World The rare example of near-perfection in a picture book. -- Horn Book (starred review)
