Good Day (A Good Day)

kevin henkes  a good day

A bad day can turn into a good one! Caldecott Medalist Kevin Henkes's masterful picture book explores a single day from five different points of view. 

It’s a bad day for a little yellow bird who loses his favorite tail feather, a little white dog whose leash gets tangled, a little orange fox who can’t find his mother, and a little brown squirrel who drops her nut. But then something good happens to each of them, turning a bad day into a good one.

What makes a good day? What makes a bad day? And how can bad be transformed into good?
