    My four-year-old son checked this book out from the library last

    My four-year-old son checked this book out from the library last week. It was the first book he wanted to read when we got home. 
    I love everything about this book: the story, the writing, the distinctive and timeless illustrations, the interesting effects (like how the inside of the diner looks black and white when viewed from the outside), but most of all, I love, love, love the author's note. Every Friday, since his son turned three, the author has taken his son to breakfast. What a wonderful tradition!
    So I bought my son his own copy of this book.

    A sentimental read

    This story brings back so many memories of rituals my mother and I had, and now I've started some with our mommy and son date nights. It makes me look at my son's and his father's relationship and their rituals...things I missed out on when I was a child. When discussing with my son he made the connection that he and his dad watch basketball on the couch, and he was right because whenever basketball is on, they curl up on floor and I leave the room (lol). I think I will purchase a hard copy and give it to them to share. Then we'll pass it down when our son becomes a father.

    A Book for ALL!

    Every Friday is a book about a Father and Son and what they do every Friday. It shows the importance of parents making a point to do something special with their kids, often. Even the smallest memories will be remembered when they mean a lot to a child. This book reminds us that a simple walk to the diner with great conversation about what is going on around them can remain in a child's memory forever. This books is very heartwarming and offers much to the reader. I am sure as a parent it is often hard to remember the little things, but for kids, they remember them all, good and bad...why not make more GOOD memories for our kids to remember. I would recommend this book to any father, mother, grandparent or child. I would also recommend this to be added to any classroom library...young and old.
