Where will you go on a free day?
The Day is Waiting by Don Freeman and his wife Linda Zuckerman gives several possibilities. It is exactly the sort of book you should give at a baby shower. Read this book to babies and toddlers before bedtime. It's very soothing. Freeman's illustrations are happy but placid. I'd recommend this book for younger children, although my eight-year-old is pleased with the book as he could read it himself.
It's actually part of the collection of artwork that Freeman left behind when he died in 1978. Text was added later to create a simple poem and storyline - in this case, a voyage to faraway places. It's a hardcover book and about that standard 8 x 10 size, so unlike a softcover book, it will sit nicely on the shelf and take a bit of a beating by small children.
