Give the gift of a magical do-nothing day!
This picture book with startlingly beautiful words and pictures will spur imagination and a break from boredom or screen time.
Now a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year and Bank Street College of Education Best Children’s Book of the Year!
All I want to do on a rainy day like today is play my game. My mom says it’s a waste of time, but without my game, nothing is fun! On the other hand, maybe I’m wrong about that…
While reading On a Magical Do-Nothing Day, one gets the sense that the illustrator became lost in her drawings, and as a reader, you’ll want to do the same. Perfect for fans of picture books by Julie Morstad, Carson Ellis, Jon Klassen, and Tomi Ungerer.
“Hands down, Beatrice Alemagna is my favourite contemporary illustrator,” said the Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator of Last Stop on Market Street, Christian Robinson.
On a Magical Do-Nothing Day has been recognized with a Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators. Don’t miss this picture book that beautifully encourages unplugged exploration.
