What makes a lucky day?One gloomy morning, Theodore found a bright, shiny penny on the way down to breakfast. There was Abraham Lincoln, face up. What luck! “Oh THANK you, Mr. Famous President!” Theodore said. And he tucked that shiny, new penny in his pocket.Follow Theodore through a day bursting with the simple joys and endless verve of young children–a reminder of how much luck abounds in the world, and how sometimes, it’s just waiting to be found.
A feel good story, and the illustrations have a charming, old-fashioned feel to them.
This is a cute little book about luck and the way your entire day can be blissful if you believe it will be! It's quite specific about lots of the elements of a kindergarten day, and elementary school in general, which could be helpful to a child trying to find out what to expect, although it does start to seem just a titch repetitive.
