I will be forever thankful to my friend Jamie for gifting these books to us at my baby shower - All in a Day and "Mama, Is It Summer Yet?" The illustrator is Nikki McClure, who uses an x-acto knife to create the pictures (whoah). Because they are high-contrast, Severen loves them. And the stories are beautiful so I enjoy reading them! The first time I read All in a Day to him, I cried. This line in particular got caught in my throat: Underneath that great big sky the earth is all a-spin. This day will soon be over and it won't come back again.
