The who, the what, the why and the way 30 Sept. 2012
By J.Prather - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Tell Me About Your Day Today is a beautiful, whimsical little bedtime story that is sure to send little ones off to sleep with a smile, all the while encouraging them to become storytellers themselves. This is what picture books are all about! The text and the illustrations work together seamlessly to tell the story. The text is beautifully written, with a marvelous read aloud flow, and when the pictures take up the tale of each toy, the story continues to be told with a charm and straight forward manner that will have kids eagerly following along.

I loved the repeating refrain as each toy tells of his day. "The who, the what, the why and the way...the whole wild thing...turned out okay." This is a great way to frame a day full of activities, and when the young boy's toys then ask him to describe his day; he thoughtfully looks back and remembers a day full of fun and drama as seen from his perspective. This book offers a great lesson in story and perspective, but most of all it gives parents a tool to interact with their children at bedtime as they examine the pictures and talk about their own days.

While the read aloud flow makes this good choice for story time, the amount of story that relies on examination of the illustrations makes this better suited for lap sharing. An excellent choice for any toddler or preschool collection that is sure to make both parents and kids look forward to bedtime just so they can share their own "the who, the what, the why and the way".

Marvelously soothing 12 Jan. 2013
By Madigan McGillicuddy - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Hurrah! A bedtime picture book from Mem Fox. This one starts out, "There once was a boy who loved bedtime." Ha! Way to hoodwink 'em!

When the boy settles in to bed, he shares stories with his stuffed animals. "The who, the what, the why, and the way... the whole thing... turned out okay." Marvelously soothing repetition creates a calming effect. In a roundabout way, we learn of the boy's adventure jumping in the rain, repairing his stuffed bunny's damaged fluffy tail, and a picnic under a blanket fort in his living room. Acrylic illustrations feature lots of dark blues and oranges.

The endpages include the same sun pattern from the boy's favorite blanket. Add this to your repertoire of goodnight stories... it'll have kids nodding off in no time.

Perfect 25 Nov. 2012
By B. Cowlham - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I ordered this for bedtime reading for my two and three year old grand children. I like the way it draws them into the thinking and opens up conversations about their days. Sometimes little ones don't know how to answer questions about their day, their time at a birthday party, or a trip to the park. This gives good lead in conversations!
our new first choice for bedtime 26 Oct. 2013
By Anne Boynton - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I am just as enamored of "Tell Me About Your Day Today" as my two year old, who has made this delight book her new first choice at bedtime. What a revolution in perspective, that bedtime might be an OPPORTUNITY for loving contact with cherished toy-friends and sweet memories of the day just past. When I read the title, my little girl eyes me shyly and tells me some tidbit from her day. I'm always surprised by her pick, and grateful for this small insight into her perspective. The different perspectives the toys have on the same day are an amusing way to tell the story, and a gentle reminder to us both that everyone's perspective is different, even when you share the same events. Gentle is an excellent word for this book overall, which reads like a long warm hug, from the rolling poetry of the language to the delightful expressions and best of all, the re-conception of dreaded bedtime into a comforting social experience. A real winner. My only regret was having bought the Scholastic version, with thin, difficult to turn pages. So I've just bought a hardcover copy. We will keep the paperback for traveling because we would not want to leave home without "Tell Me About Your Day Today"!

Tell Me About Your Day Today
by Mem Fox, illus. by Lauren Stringer
(Beach Lane Books, 2012)

This wonderful bedtime story has the main character's friends (his stuffed animals) each telling about their exciting day. It's not a rhyming picture book, but it has this lovely comforting refrain:

And Greedy Goose
told him about her day--
the who,
the what,
the why,

and the way...
the whole wild thing...
turned out okay.

Each animal's story is that short, with beautiful spot (mostly) illustrations showing exactly what the who, what, why, and way are! But each story has drama! The details, like the band-aid over Fat Rabbit's bottom, are warm and funny.

And when the boy tells his friends about his day, his friends are, of course, prominently featured.

This is a lovely, beautiful bedtime picture book. Hooray for Mem Fox and Lauren Stringer--a great pairing!
