Today is a very nice day. There has never been a day so nice as this, except for maybe yesterday. Join Vernon and his friends Skunk and Porcupine on a series of three enchanting adventures entitled Waiting, Fishing, and Gardening, as they comb the forest floor for trinkets and go fishing in their own unconventional way. Award-winning author Philip Stead’s calming text and playful, sincere illustrations will charm and entertain many times over.
This book is so sweet. The illustrations are sweet. The stories are sweet. Everything about it is sweet and gentle and kind of perfect. I love Philip Stead’s illustrations and the amazing range of emotion his little animals have. I own this book and love reading it with my kids when we’re trying to calm down or just be quiet and soft and snuggly.
This book is made up of short stories. The illustrations are simple and there are pages with no words to allow the reader to imagine their own parts of the story.
