A Perfect Day

Written by Lane Smith

Books for Babies and Toddlers

A Perfect Day Synopsis

A warm, funny picture book about a group of animals and their (not so) perfect day in the garden, from beloved author and illustrator Lane Smith. Whether basking in the warmth of the sun, nibbling on a fresh yellow corn-on-the-cob, or cooling off in a clear pool of water, it is a truly beautiful afternoon for all... what could possible go wrong?

A Perfect Day Press Reviews

The perfect introduction for children to learn about perspectives and differing points of view. This use of block-printing proves striking and immersive illustrations - the reader can feel the warmth of the sun and the cool of the water.    Carousel Magazine

Smith, with his signature humor, masterfully fills the spreads with Bear's immense scale and endearing antics, capturing each comedic beat with text repetition and expressive illustrations    Kirkus

Smith's artwork is a riot of color and texture-forceful brushstrokes evoke animal fur, and gestural flowers create blasts of color in the landscape    Publishers Weekly
