Mimi and Dad's favorite day came after Friday . . . they called it DADURDAY.
For Mimi, the best day of the week is always Saturday, because she gets to spend it with just her Dad. Every "Dadurday" begins the same way--Mimi and Dad make silly-shaped pancakes, read the comics section of the newspaper and make lists of fun things to do together. But when Dad gets a new work schedule, "Dadurday" is ruined. Can Mimi find a way to still make it a special day for her and dad?

Ever since the twins were born, Mimi has looked forward to Dadurday, her family’s new name for the day after Friday. On that day, her dad sets aside plenty of time to have fun with Mimi. When his work schedule shifts to include Saturdays, the adjustment hits her hard. That first week, waiting for her father to come home makes for a long, long day until her focus shifts from feeling sad and mad to preparing for the best Dadurday ever. Pulver’s text captures Mimi’s dilemma sympathetically but without sentimentality and allows the child to wallow in her emotions and find her own way of working through them. Brightened with watercolor, watercolor pencil, and gouache, the expressive ink drawings illustrate the story with attention to telling details and express the characters’ emotions with clarity and finesse. Well-suited for reading aloud, this sympathetic picture book will leave many children wishing for their own version of Dadurday. Preschool-Grade 2. --Carolyn Phelan
