The tone, the writing, and the illustrations of All In a Day are lovely, and just the type of story I want to give to children. It supports experiencing life in an unhurried way. I enjoyed the expansive and comforting feeling, which reminded me of the classic books of both Margaret Wise Brown and Rebecca Caudill.

Simple and rhyming, this is a book brimming with optimism about the opportunities and possibilities in a day," A day can change just everything,given half a chance.Rain could show up at your doorand teach you how to dance."The illustrations are in single shades of white, black, pale blue and yellow - reminiscent of this year's Caldecott Medal book, The House in the Night - simple and peaceful in keeping with the sparse, large print text. A beautiful book.

I loved Nikki McClure's art in this book, her use of simple lines to create great images enriches the plot of the book all the more.
