Through simple words and hundreds of warm and contemporary illustrations, Picture My Day explores the key moments that occur in a single day for three young children. From daybreak to bedtime, readers will follow these two sisters and their brother as they eat breakfast, get dressed, play games, go to the park, explore nature, take a bath, and more.

Throughout the book, objects like the clothes pinned to the laundry line, the musical instruments in the playroom, and the vegetables spilling from a grocery bag are clearly labeled, inviting young readers to learn new words and to categorize objects. Plus, readers are introduced to simple concepts like flavors, colors, and seasons, too.

More than just an illustrated dictionary, Picture My Day is a kind of scrapbook of what life is like for young children, from first words to first situations. And, with lots of little shared moments between affectionate family members on display, children and parents alike will delight in poring over the pages of this picture book.
