A Perfect Day by Lane Smith was published in 2017 and tells the story of a perfect day for several animals in Bert's yard. He explains what makes it a perfect day for each animal. "The warmth of the sun felt good on Cat's back. Cat liked to be in the flower bed where the daffodils grew. It was a perfect day for Cat."
The dog, chickadee, and squirrel are all having a perfect day until a bear comes and scares them all into the house. What they leave behind gives Bear a perfect day. I can't wait to share this one with the grandkids if the pandemic ever ends.
I love the art in this book and wish it was the original paintings because the texture on the original art begs to be touched. This would be a fun book to have children try to copy the art style because of all the different textures. It would be fun to figure out how Smith made them all.
The Mello family donated these four Seuss books in honor of their nephew Liam. The recipients of theses books will know they were donated in his honor
Angie donated these 12 fun books. Thank you!
Read to a child today even if that child is you.
Link to our NICU book registry to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.
