A Good Day

There's something about this weather that makes every day feel like a good day.  It's warm, the sun is shining and this morning is brimming with potential.

Kevin Henkes 2007

Kevin Henkes does some fine colored pictures for this book.  The day starts off worrisome for bird, dog, squirrel and fox.  But then things take a turn for the better and it is a "good day" after all. 

Little yellow bird lost his favorite tail feather.

Little orange fox couldn't find his mother.

Little brown squirrel found the biggest nut ever.

And little yellow bird forgot about his feather and flew higher than he ever had before.

A little girl spotted a perfect yellow feather, picked it up, tucked it behind her ear, and ran to her mother, shouting, "Mama!  What a good day!"


  1. I fell in love this book the minute I picked it up.

  2. This looks like a nice book for children to think about things in a positive way.
