Oh, What a Busy Day by Gyo Fujikawa


Oh, What a Busy Day by Gyo Fujikawa

What a special treat! Gyo Fujikawa has concocted a big, beautiful book that goes from morning till night, completely capturing a child's world along the way. Filled with silly jingles and fun rhymes; imaginative ideas for games; things for a daydreaming child to think about and gentle little lessons on kindness and friendship, it will hold kids' attention for hours. And, as always, Fujikawa's sweet and appealing art features a diverse group of youngsters and a menagerie of delightful animals.
