Review: This Beautiful Day

Hello, readers!

It’s time for April showers! So we’re bringing some joy to your rainy days with Julie’s review of This Beautiful Day by Richard Jackson, illustrated by Suzy Lee!


OpeningThis beautiful day…has everyone dancing and spinning and swinging around, has all of us stamping and stomping our feet on the ground.

Summary: (from my library catalog) Undaunted by the rainy weather, three children take their happiness outside and seem to chase the clouds away as they jump, skip, and dance together.

I like this book because: Especially living in an arid climate, in the semi-desert steppe of northern Colorado, I LOVE RAINY DAYS! I didn’t love them so much when I lived in a moist and often cloudy semi-valley (I just made that up!) in northern Germany! I love the multi-media use of pencil, acrylic, and digital in these energetic illustrations and lyrical, rhyming, read-aloud-timing text.

–Julie
