So Many Days
By Alison McGhee
Illustrated by Taeeun Yoo
Atheneum
January 2010
40 pages

So Many Days is meant to inspire young children to open the door to the endless possibilities each day has to offer. Through the use of free verse, Alison McGhee highlights familiar things like wind and snow, and the sun and moon to challenge young readers to use their imaginations and enrich their lives.

Taeeun Yoo’s illustrations bring this simple, yet powerful message to life. The colorful, action-packed scenes show a young child, who could be a boy or girl, and a little dog sharing great adventures and making the most of every single day.

The questions posed, “Who will you be and where will you go? And how will you know?” make for good conversation starters after reading. This book offers a fun and imaginative way to build self-esteem.
