Daniel's Good Day

by Micha Archer

Published by Nancy Paulsen Books / Penguin, 2019
32 pages
ISBN: 9780399546723

Ages 4-8

Daniel is on his way to Grandma’s house when passing neighbors tell him to “have a good day!” But what makes a day a good one? Curious, Daniel pauses along his way to ask everyone he passes. For some, weather makes a good day: clear skies for the housepainter perched on a ladder, a strong wind for kite-flying Emma. For others, it’s friendliness: The bus driver appreciates a “please” and a “thank-you,” while the mail carrier hopes for “wagging tails” at the houses to which he delivers. Success at work makes a good day for some, like the baker (“birthdays”) and the crossing guard (“everybody home safe”). And all Grandma needs is a hug from Daniel to make her day a good one. Welcomed home by his family later, Daniel remembers his neighbors’ answers and lists them as reasons he’s had a good day himself. Daniel, who has brown skin and curly black hair, enjoys a level of independence and a close familiarity with his neighbors. Brightly colored, highly detailed mixed-media illustrations show a highly diverse neighborhood in a story that exudes warmth and good cheer. ©2019 Cooperative Children’s Book Center
