With the simple, cut-paper art illustrations by Nikki McClure and the poetic words by Cynthia Rylant, young children will find themselves drawn into the world of a young boy in the country in the delightful children’s book All In A Day. The story follows the boy through his day as he experiences the world around him and encourages children to make the most of the day they are living. Children learn that a single day can hold “work and rest, rain and sun, comforts and surprises.”
This book is perfect for bedtime with its gently rhythmic words and comforting themes. The illustrations are uncomplicated and display the innocence of youth in their simplicity.
The author, Cynthia Rylant has written more than a hundred books for children, including the popular Henry and Mudge series. Rylant has won the Newbery Medal for Missing May and the Newbery Honor for A Fine White Dust.
