A Good Day

Mix a pancake,

Stir a pancake,

Pop it in the pan;

Fry the pancake,

Toss the pancake-

Catch it if you can.

~Christina G. Rosseti

Mmmmm Early Sunday morning and the warm cozy smell of pancakes and maple syrup is wafting upstairs..... it's a good day. And a 3 day week-end!

It's A Good Day by Kevin Henkes is full of sweet, simple, colorful, flowing art which sometimes looks like woodcut prints. It's Kevin Henkes art at its best. With simple text, it starts with 4 animals having a bad day. A squirrel has lost his nut, a fox her mother.... "But then...," the squirrel finds a bigger nut and the fox finds his mother. To end it all, a little girl finds a perfect feather. She tucks it behind her ear and runs to her house, "Mama! What a good day."
