I don’t know about you, but reading is a major part of our day!! When I find colorful and fun books I get so excited!!! This one is a KEEPER!!! One Busy Day: A Story for Big Brothers and Sisters is written by Lola M. Schaefer and illustrated by Jessica Meserve. This is a large, hard cover book. It’s perfect for kids that are ages 3 to 5, and older too! It’s a book specially written for brothers and sisters.
The story is so cute!! Mia wants to play with her big brother Spencer. Like most big brothers, Spencer is always too busy!! So Mia starts playing by herself painting, dancing and exploring. Eventually Spencer sees that it’s much more fun to play together.
It was so funny to watch Alice and Eli as my daughter Selena was reading to them. At first Eli (the older cousin) wasn’t interested in hearing a story. But as the story went on Eli is just as intrigued as Alice. Alice was engrossed in the story from page one.
This story is so funny to me because it mimics the exact relationship between Eli and Alice when they are together. Both secretly watching the other play! The story shows both kids using their imaginations as they play, exactly like Eli and Alice. This story is full of imaginary play from fort building to playing outside. Mia and Spencer’s story is full of fun and adventure!!
I can’t wait to read Lola M Schaefer’s book Frankie Stein, it was awarded the Children’s Choice Book Award AND the Mockingbird Award too!! Lola has written more than 200 children’s books!
Jessica Meserve is an author/illustrator of Small Sister and Can Anybody Hear Me?? I love the fact that Jessica’s children helped her inspire the artwork in this book!!
This book gets 8 thumbs WAY UP!!! Cute CUTE book!!
