Picture my day

Picture My Day is the perfect gift for children ages 2 to 4 that just may spark some early scrapbooking.

Book cover: Picture my dayCreated by Severine Cordier and Cynthia Lacroix, this picture book gathers together the adventures of three children over the course of a single day. They wake up, eat breakfast and get dressed. These activities involve pillows, blankets, pajamas, nightgowns, cups, glasses, bowls, toast, jam, overalls, socks and more. Objects are hung out on the laundry line so we can see how much stuff we all have and use during one 24-hour period.

As the children play, take baths, eat again, go out in nature and encounter nightfall, the book's illustrations show hundreds of objects and their names, as well as introduce concepts such as colors, seasons and time.

Picture My Day is the kind of book that will inspire young and old alike to keep better track of who we are, what we do and how much we possess. Even better, it will encourage families to be more grateful for what they have (Owlkids Books, 2012).
