Reviews

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 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) A glorious celebration of the simple joys of childhood. -- Kirkus Reviews (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)
