Some of the Days of Everett Andersonby Lucille Clifton, Evaline Ness
'The days of six-year-old Everett Anderson are the days of the week, each one a poem to itself, and two for Friday...The simple, short verses...celebrate the boy's 'joie de vivre'... Excellent for reading aloud as well as for viewing.' -The Horn Book

These verses speak to all little boys and those who love them. I remember Augusta Baker reading this book to us, children's librarians, in New York. Publisher, this book is worth bringing back in print!
