An amusing picture book featuring different animals and how they each enjoy a perfect day in their own way. Textured illustrations add a lot of dimension and beauty to this story.

The twist at the end of this book had me giggling in delight. Imagine your perfect day… then add a bear. The illustrations are full of life and are just as engaging as the text. Lane Smith is well known for his work with Jon Scieszka in The Stinky Cheese Man and The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. While there is echo of the same style, the illustrations are much dreamier and less dark. I could stare at them all day.

Perfectly adorable!

It's a perfect day for Cat, Dog, Chickadee and Squirrel...until Bear shows up. Smith's sweet and textured illustrations perfectly accompany his simple text. Young children will surely ask to read this one again!

Lane's paintings are picture perfect on this warm, summer day. This is a great read aloud for any preschool story-time.

Lane Smith's simple text and unique illustrations never disappoint. This story made me giggle and I imagine preschool students would get a kick out of this story in storytime, as well!

A lovely book for springtime about the animals in Bert's backyard having a "perfect" day. Warm sun for the cat, a cool kiddie pool for the dog, a corncob for the squirrel...at least until a bear shows up. Sweet and silly, this is a nice addition to a preschool storytime on bears or the changing seasons.
