In the grand tradition of "Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens," comes an uplifting tribute to 100 everyday things worth celebrating. The list, in rhyming couplets, draws directly from a preschooler's world -- from Big sis / Goodnight kiss to Snowflake / Chocolate cake, from Slippery floors / Dinosaurs to Goldfish / Birthday wish. Amy Schwartz weaves a masterful balance between art and text, with each of the 100 items offering its own narrative and small details for the careful observers. The oversized pages envelop young children with the wonderful things surrounding them.
Amy Schwartz has written and illustrated decades of classic and award-winning titles, among them Bea and Mr. Jones, a NYT Best Children's Book of the Year; Annabelle Swift, Kindergartner, A Teeny Tiny Baby, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year; Oma and Bobo and What James Likes Best.
