I just spotted Yes Day, by Amy Krouse Rosenthal at the Scholastic fair at Kylie's school and it made me laugh! How many of you feel like every other word out of your mouth is NO? What if there was a YES day! What fun!!! Can I clean my room later? YES! May I have pizza for breakfast? YES! Can we buy all of the junk food at the grocery store today? YES! This book happily goes through a bunch of activities that us teachers and moms usually answer with a big, fat NO! I love the illustrations that go along with the silly kid requests and especially like the endpapers that look like a calendar filled with all of the other common ways to answer NO. No way Jose, over my dead body, go ask your father, and the list goes on! Yes Day! is a YES in my book! I will definitely be adding it to our home collection!!
1. Make your own Yes Day book and fill it with illustrations and requests that are usually answered with a NO! You never know...it may inspire you to have a YES day for a change!
