Description
You can tell it's going to be a great day by the way this picture book begins: "The first to wake up was the boy. Second was the alarm clock. Third was the dog. The house was still quiet. Everyone else was still asleep." In such simple declarative sentences and equally simple (yet utterly charming) watercolor cartoons, Japanese illustrator Taro Gomi shows readers 4 to 7 just how great an ordinary day can be.

"Parents reading this to their youngsters will appreciate the subtext about good behavior, even as the little ones learn that falling down, crying, arguing with a friend, laughing, playing, and resolving an argument are all part of a normal, great day. Colorful minimalist illustrations depict the boy's mishaps and adventures (getting dressed by himself, jumping over garbage cans, crying on the playground, etc.) in images that are at once quiet as a silent animated film and as rambunctious as a little boy's temperament. This is well suited to repeat bedtime readings, which ought to lead drowsy children to recognize that their own great day has left them so tired there's nothing left to do but sleep. Gomi's message about appreciating the ordinariness of things will be familiar to readers who know his books My Friends and Everyone Poops."Booklist
