This is book for children from aged 1, as there are lots of detailed pictures, and very little text. It depicts an average family having sunny days, rainy days, hot days, cold days etc. It's not a storybook, but a means of discussion about the day you have had, and what days you like etc. It is helpful that you see that you can have a bad day, but then a new day comes and it can be another sort of day.

We (I and my 5 and 3 year old girls) read this book at the local library first, and after coming back specially to find it again, I decided to add it to our home library. Great simple story with great pictures. We could totally relate to every spread (especially because we are a family with 2 girls and a boy, just like a family in the book).

I love reading this book with my son, now 3, because you can read it as fast or as slow as you like - by discussing the details in the pictures or how you feel etc.

Also helps remind your child (and you!) that bad days, sad days, dull days are as normal as good days, happy days, fun days etc.

Really love this book!!

A Sweet Picture Book for Sparking Conversation 28 May 2007
By P. Gould - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a very simple, sweet picture book. Although my 5 year old still likes it (and can read it herself!), I think she's simply grown attached to it over the years. It's probably best to buy this for a really young child.

The text is extremely brief and starts out "In our family we have good days...bad days." Then goes on with "happy days...sad days, work days...play days, home days...away days" and so on. Each day has it's own page, with one to 4 watercolor and pen pictures per page. It's great for little kids learning the concept of opposites. But as they grew older, my children seemed to get the message that all families have ups and downs--and that not every day is predictably the same.

But the best parts, by far, are all the detailed pictures. My kids liked to try to figure out what's going on in each one and then talk about why the family is having a "happy day" on a picnic or why they're having a "sad day" when a pet dies. The pictures have interesting details like a baby nursing in a poster on the wall of the doctor's office or the birthday cake shaped like a house. Of course these details can lead to even more discussion. In fact, sometimes the downside to this book was how long it took to get through it while stopping to study every page!

But that's not really a downside. I definately recommend this simple book.

So, enjoy!

This is a good icebreaker book for groups who are dealing with a specific issue. It is a great way to start everyone talking and getting comfortable with each other.
