Some of the books that are launching recently seem so perfect for the current world situation – I wonder if the authors had ESP! This one, for example!
Let’s sing an extra-ordinary Happy Birthday to Lisa Katzenberger’s latest picture book:
NATIONAL REGULAR AVERAGE ORDINARY DAY
Written by Lisa Katzenberger
Illustrated by Barbara Bakos
Published by Penguin
Synopsis from Amazon:
Even the regular, average, ordinary days can be celebrated with this charming picture book!
Peter does not like being bored, so he comes up with a way to have some festive fun–he’ll celebrate a different holiday each day! He even rates them on a scale of 1 to 10. But when he wakes up one morning to discover there isn’t any holiday, he realizes he’ll have to take matters into his own hands and make up his own! That’s easier said than done, though, and nothing seems to go right–until Peter realizes that even a regular, average, ordinary day can be something worth celebrating.
What I love about this book is that kids can really relate to feeling bored…especially these days!
I’m also excited because I love books written by kidlit friends…and I’ve been lucky enough to meet the lovely Lisa Katzenberger on a couple of my trips to Chicago…earlier this year I even got to have lunch with her!!!!
Order a copy of NATIONAL REGULAR ORDINARY DAY where you’ll find out:
- Which holiday rated a 1
- If squirrels like the bathtub
- What you can do with a cardboard box
- How often a cat appears in the illustrations even though it wasn’t in the manuscript
