Henkes, Kevin. A Good Day. New York: Greenwillow, 2007.
A bird, a dog, a fox, and a squirrel are all having a bad day for various reasons. Their circumstances change and the day turns out to be good after all.
What I Thought: This story is lovely in its simplicity. The illustrations are just what I expect from Henkes. I enjoyed the surprise at the end. (That's all I'm saying here about that. Go read the book.)
Story Time Idea: The brevity of text makes this book perfect for a preschool story time. Henkes' birthday is in November. Why not have a birthday celebration and read several of his books?
