My thoughts

I just love books especially books that teach important lessons and ideas. This children's book, The Best Part of the Day, has a beautiful message of looking at the best part of the day and focusing on the good. This book came at a perfect time in my life because lately I have been having troubles seeing anything wonderful. I was in a very gloomy mood. This book was a reminder about how there is so much to be happy about.

I really want my children to grow up with the habit of looking for the best part of their day. So we have been reading this book a lot the last few weeks and I keep asking them what their best part of the day was. I really only expect an answer from Monkey since Roo only says 1 words and sometimes 2 word sentences. It has been fun hearing Monkey talk about riding the bus, playing at school, playing blocks with me, and being home with his family. It was truly touching to hear these simple but profound statements from my precious little boy.

The illustrations are simply breathtaking. I love looking at the pictures and remembering when I played in recommend this book for everyone!
the leaves and what I did each season this year. This book is one that I will cherish throughout my years and one that I am so thankful to have in my collection. I totally without any hesitation
