Birth to 3. 2005 Caldecott winner Kevin Henkes delivers a meaningful and heart warming board book in A Good Day. In it, a bird looses his feather, a dog's leash gets tangled in a fence, a young fox can't find his mother, and a little squirrel looses her nut. But it all works out for each animal. Then a little girl finds the feather and tells her mother that it is a good day. This is a truly sweet and touching board book. Henkes' simple, but precise words are sure to speak directly to little ones. Painted with watercolors, his illustrations are impressionistic in the background. However he also uses thick black lines to clearly delineate his characters, their expressions, and details in the forefront. Henkes' use of soft colors welcomes the reader in, and the colors' brightness contributes to the positive thematic progression and cheerful ending. This board book is highly recommended for public library collections and is a great read aloud for a toddler and preschool story-time. There probably isn't a Henkes book to pass up, and this board book is certainly no exception. A Good Day has the quality of easily becoming a childhood favorite.
