"Each brief verse has the rhythmic lilt and play with sounds and meaning that so engage young children. . . . But James's illustrations are the best feature of this inviting collection." — The Horn Book (starred review)

Days Like This is a book of celebration — whether it's the novelty of sleeping outdoors, the delight of picnicking on the beach, or the sheer joy of bouncing on the bed in the afternoon. These small poems have been carefully selected by acclaimed author-illustrator Simon James, whose expressive line and watercolors portray an everyday world overflowing with wonder and possibility. With words and pictures given space to breathe, this is a collection of poems to read and revel in from beginning to end.

About the Author

Simon James says, "Over the years I have come across many delightful small poems and have always wanted to give them room and expand on them visually. In DAYS LIKE THIS, I set out to make a genuine picture book of poetry."
