This lovely book illuminates all the possibilities a day offers—the opportunities and chances that won’t ever come again—and also delivers a gentle message of good stewardship of our planet. Newbery Medal winner Cynthia Rylant’s poetic text, alongside Nikki McClure’s stunning, meticulously crafted cut-paper art, makes this picture book not only timeless but appealing to all ages, from one to one hundred.

“So live it well, make it count.
Fill it up with you
The day’s all yours, it’s waiting now
See what you can do”

What a lovely sentiment and it brings the thought of what comes in a day.

The sun starts the day and the moon ends it – but there are so many things that happen in between so seize them.

This a great book for all ages as there is a lovely message in it. The illustrations are wonderful and precisely what is needed to go with the great words
