My Day, Your Day

by Robin Ballard

Published by Greenwillow Books / HarperCollins, 2001
24 pages
ISBN: 0-688-17796-4

Ages 2 - 5

"My day is at day care. Your day is at work. Bye-bye. See you later." Little ones seeing these boldly colored illustrations and hearing these short, child-centered sentences read to them will enjoy the immediacy of familiar activities. A child building with blocks is seen in a full-page illustration. But there's more. On the opposite page, a working parent can be discovered using blueprints, visiting a construction site, and looking at a completed building. On another pair of pages, a child is washing up, while a parent is repairing someone's plumbing. The same family members can be discovered together in the opening and closing sequences of the book where the children are shown arriving and later leaving their daytime care givers. It'll be fun to match the diverse children and their parents who wear clothing of the same color for easy identification throughout the book. CCBC categories: Picture Books for Younger Children; Books for Babies and Toddlers; Contemporary People, Places, and Events.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
