Charming celebration of a beloved daughter in rhyming verse. Ally Nathaniel has created a lovely poem that takes the reader through many happy childhood activities from baking cakes to riding a red sparkly bike. The illustrations are of Emma and an upbeat reflection of a satisfying day in the life of a cherished child. She is filled with adventure and anticipation as she takes off to explore and discover all the different things that can delight a a young mind. Using simple, everyday experiences, this is a book about finding fun in everything one does and making the most out of everything. Despite a full day of things to do, Nathaniel brings it home stressing that the best thing is having a nice lunch and talk with the ones you love.
