A Good Day

"It was a bad day...little yellow bird lost his favorite tail feather. Little white dog got her leash all tangled up in the fence...But then...Little white dog worked herself free and ran in circles through the dandelions. And little yellow bird forgot about his feather and flew higher than he ever had before."

A Good Day by Kevin Henkes is a picture book about animals who are having a bad day, and then things turn around.

Young children, as well as adults, have bad days too. This story helps put things into perspective for a preschooler.

Sometimes our misfortune is another peron's fortune. "A little girl spotted a perfect yellow feather; picked it up, turcked it behind her ear, and ran to her mother, shouting, 'Mama! What a good day!'"
