Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Young Evie has all the luckat least in Williams's ("More, More, More!" Said the Baby) quiet but inviting book. Spare declarative sentences describe Evie's simple good fortune on a day where everything goes her way: "She wanted something new to wear, and on the hook she found it" (the artwork shows her reaching for a brightly colored cap); "She wanted something new to play with, and her grandpa made it for her" (he is seen crouching with a kite). At bedtime, parent and child recall the day's fun as Evie's father sings her a song "all about Evie, who flew her kite up with the clouds and the speedy planes." Young children will feel comforted by the depiction of Evie's loving and supportive family and cotton to Evie's independent, slightly adventurous spirit. Williams bathes her story in her characteristic rainbow palette of watercolorseven the letters of text are awash in various hues. Her richly toned pages serve as a stage on which Evie and the other characters take the spotlight. Ages 3-up. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Evie is not a beautiful little girl, but she has a beautiful outlook and is surrounded by a loving family. Grandpa makes a kite and she has a wonderful time flying it. When she is hungry, grandma has dinner ready, All through the day her mother, grandparents, sister and father have brought joy into her life. The ordinary becomes extraordinary in this delightful book filled with bright, simple illustrations. Evie is indeed a "lucky" little girl and her song will resonate with young children.

School Library Journal
PreS-KEvie, a little girl in her pajamas, wants to do something, so she prepares by getting dressed. Everything seems to flow perfectly. She wants something new to wear and there on a hook is a new cap. She wants something new to play with and her grandfather makes her a kite. All through her lucky day when everything goes right, she is surrounded by her loving mother, grandmother, sister, and father. It seems too perfect and it is. It is only a song sung by her father. But if you want to hear it again, all you have to do is go back to the beginning. The colors and shapes are bright and basic, as are the words that run along the bottom. The backgrounds are undetailed color washes. They put the focus on the child and her interactions with her family. This book is as warm as a blanket wrapped around you with a hug, just when you need it. Deceptively simple and lovely.Judith Gloyer, Milwaukee Public Library
Leonard S. Marcus
Enhanced by Williams's jubilant watercolors, this beguiling hym to unconditional love shows how it gives kids the confidence to step out into the world and, when they fall on their face, pick themselves up again. Parenting
Tamar Lewin
Adults may differ about what makes a perfect day. But for a young child, it would surely be like the one Vera B. Williams creates for Evie in "Lucky Song." It's a slight, bright book with the color-saturated pictures and joyous spirit familiar to readers of such beloved earlier works as "A Chair for My Mother' and Scooter." -- Tamar Lewin, New York Times Book Review
Kirkus Reviews
Lucky Evie—what she wants, she gets. "Now this little Evie wanted to do something, so she got ready. She wanted something new to wear, and on the hook she found it." When Evie wants to fly a kite, the wind takes it. When she wants supper, her grandma has it ready, and when she wants a song, her father sings it—the text of the book itself, an abstract ode to contentment. Evie appears to be about four, and in the last scene, points the way to readers: "If you want to hear that song again, go back to the beginning." The comforts and joys of someone her age are well understood by Williams (Scooter, 1993, etc.), and the pictures, putting Evie center stage, emphasize the importance of the child in her benign and homey surroundings. Supporting her independence, though, are family members who one by one contribute to her activities. Intense colors and exuberant poses compensate for the sometimes unfinished look of the art—Evie's hair changes, and her grandfather is a funny, balding child/man. The overall effect is as lively and spontaneous as a child's perfect day—and that makes this a very lucky song for readers.
