A Good Day
A Good Day

It started out as a bad day for little yellow bird, little white dog, little orange fox, and little brown squirrel. Until a discovery was made and a different point of view changed all that. What can turn a bad day into a good day?

Age: 3 Year-olds | Title: A Good Day  |  Author: Kevin Henkes  |  Publisher: Greenwillow Books

It started out as a bad day for little yellow bird, little white dog, little orange fox, and little brown squirrel. Until a discovery was made and a different point of view changed all that. What can turn a bad day into a good day?

Five different animals are having a bad day - can it be turned around into a good day? Help your child learn how to see the better side of a bad day with A Good Day. The beautiful water color pictures have the main characters outlined in bold lines to help them stand out from the detailed backgrounds. The story is told in one sentence per page with large lettering for your child to follow along and begin to recognize letters and words.

Your little one will can identify the five main characters (yellow bird, white dog, orange fox, brown squirrel, and the little girl) and can practice naming them and their color. You can help your child empathize with the characters by asking them if different things would make them sad, and have a bad day, and then brainstorm together how it could be turned around into a good day. Readers may find themselves subconsciously imitating the animals' sad faces in the first half of the story, and then smiling with each of them as their day improves.

Three-year-old Sam said he felt bad for White Dog the most because he was "trapped" by the fence. Sam said he would cry if his dog, Tatter, was every trapped and sad like that. I asked Sam if he's ever had a bad day that got better, and he said he had a bad day when he was hit in the head with a nerf ball while playing, but he felt better when his mom gave him an ice pack and made him some cookies.
