The Great Day

The Great Day

The boy wakes first in his home and is a ball of energy. He gets to the table and eats while his parents are still half-asleep. The boy doesn’t just open the door, he leaps out. He doesn’t just walk to school, he jumps over a garbage can. The boy expresses his emotions as freely as his physical zest: he is the first to cry, the first to laugh, the first to argue, the first to make up.

Taro Gomi has created more than 350 books for readers of all ages. This one shows how physical energy and emotional enthusiasm are ingredients of a great day in the life of a child — or for that matter, of any human being (Chronicle Books).
