“A Good Day” by Kevin Henkes is about how a bad day can turn into a good day.
“Bad things happened in the front of the book. Like the bird lost his yellow feather and the
dog got her leash all twisted around the fence. Our dog gets her leash twisted around things too, like trees. Then good things happen at the back of the book. I liked that. I liked when the girl found the feather just like I found a feather in the yard!”
My son and I enjoyed the simple text and illustrations in “A Good Day.” The main premise of how a bad day can turn into a good day is a great one and we enjoyed seeing how this came to be in the story. This sturdy board book will stand up even to the littlest of fingers and we recommend this story to those ages four and under.
