” A Perfect Day”

What is your idea of a perfect day?  In Lane Smith’s newest book, ” A Perfect Day, ” the reader follows a cat, a dog, a squirrel, and a chickadee to discover what each believes is their perfect day.9781626725362_p0_v2_s118x184.jpg

Each is made happy with a different, simple pleasure.  The cat likes to feel the warmth of the sun on her back while lying in a field of daffodils.  The dog likes a cool pool of water on a hot day.  The chickadee enjoys the birdseed in the planter, and the squirrel the corncob that the young boy puts on the lawn for him.  But what does the bear like who invades the yard where these animals are enjoying their perfect day?

Young readers from ages two and up will enjoy exploring what each of these animals feels makes for a perfect day and discovering that everyone has a different idea.

Lane Smith has written a slowly-paced, enjoyable story and illustrated it with artwork featuring a riot of texture and color.  This is a lovely story that will delight young readers.
