The Best Part of The Day Book Review

Take time for family traditions
It's such an important message, and one you can find in the book The Best Part of The Day.  With the Holidays approaching, it's a perfect topic to remind us of the importance of family time.

About the Book:

Beautifully illustrated and lyrically written, this "good night" story encourages children to find at least one moment in each day that is worthy of celebration. The Best Part of the Day is the perfect addition to any family's nighttime routine.

My Thoughts: This is a charming story and beautifully illustrated.  The story reminds children and adults alike to cherish every moment of every day.  Throughout the story, the author encourage readers to notice the little details in nature, family, home, school, and daily chores.  My kids return to the book often, and discover new details in the illustrations every time they read it.  This is book encourages conversations between family members, which I find very valuable.
