Description
Newbery Medal winner Cynthia Rylant's poetic text, alongside Nikki McClure's beautifully crafted cut-paper art, makes this picture book not only timeless but also appealing to all ages. "A day is a perfect piece of time / to live a life, / to plant a seed," begins this lovely text, which goes on to illuminate all the things a day offers—the opportunities and the chances that won't ever come again—as well as a gentle message of good stewardship of our planet.

"Astonishingly detailed, the artwork evokes the feel of classic 1940s and 50s picture books. The large spreads show a boy exploring nature on his family's farm, napping in a hammock with his mother, and hiking in the woods with his father. They successfully capture the magical childhood sense that a day can go on forever. There's no denying the simple loveliness of Rylant's text in lines like "The past is sailing off to sea,/the future's fast asleep."—School Library Journal
