picture-536Yes Day!, by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld from Harper Collins Publishers, is reviewed by Trevor, age 6. Trevor is entering 1st grade in Long Beach.

Everyone loves getting the answer yes to his or her requests. Yes Day! is about a boy who gets an entire day to celebrate this answer. The boy, who is the main character, gets to ask his parents all kinds of fun requests: pizza for breakfast, inventing games, choosing items at the grocery. My favorite part of the book is when the boy gets to invite his friend, Mario, for dinner. The pictures were really funny and made me laugh. I would definitely read more books by this author. I keep asking my daddy and papa if we can have a ‘Yes Day,’ but I think it will be “We’ve discussed it, considered all the factors, and decided Absolutely Not Day!!”

Can Mario come over for dinner?

Parent Note: The book has a nice theme and great illustrations. Inside the front and back book covers is a really funny calendar of “No Days” that lead-up to “Yes Day!” Trevor thoroughly enjoyed this book.
