9780805077247: Every Friday

No day is better than Friday!

Friday is my favorite day.

All week long, a boy and his father look forward to their Friday ritual―breakfast at their favorite diner. The leisurely walk through the neighborhood is just as good as the pancakes at the end.

Dan Yaccarino's bright, distinctive art style and sweet, simple story about father-son bonding make Every Friday an all-around crowd-pleaser. The weekly tradition will appeal to children who have similar routines with their parents, and kids who don't have such a tradition will be asking their dads to start one! It's a perfect gift book, too―just in time for Father's Day.

Every Friday is a 2007 New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year and a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Review:

There are few things more rewarding for a child than receiving undivided attention from a parent. Every Friday is a fun and heartwarming celebration of precisely that brand of togetherness, where a father and son's weekly ritual of walking to the local diner for breakfast unfolds in bright, bold swaths of color. On the way, they watch the neighborhood come to life and urge each other on from one delightful distraction to another. Their story packs a powerful nostalgic punch for parents and is sweet inspiration for the whole family to spend time together--whether that means sharing a weekly breakfast or reading a book before bedtime.


Author Dan Yaccarino Talks About His Inspiration for Every Friday
I guess the Friday breakfasts came about because like most dads, I sometimes didn't feel like I saw my son enough. Some weeks, our Friday breakfasts were the only time he and I had to talk or just share some time together.

I look back on when we started what became our little tradition. He was in preschool and had to start sharing his mom and dad with a new little sister. I wanted him to have some time when he didn't have to put up with a crying baby who yanked his ears, which he patiently tolerated. He and I soon looked forward to Fridays and the diner's owner, Nick, as well as a variety of regulars, warmly greeting us. To their continued astonishment, he consumed an entire adult-size order of pancakes and a side of bacon, of which I was very proud. I have fond memories of us watching people trudging through the snow and rain as he and I were cozily nestled in a booth, a little oasis from the outside world. As much as we loved Nick’s Diner, I think we both preferred the small journey we took each week to get there. It may have been a mere four blocks, but it was full of adventure: greeting familiar faces, window shopping and monitoring the progress of a building on the corner going up story by story.

Nick's Diner has since closed, so our breakfasts have been relocated to another and like that building, my son is now tall and strong. I look back on his wonder of the world and fascination of even the smallest things. Even though it was only a few years ago, life seemed a bit less complicated. My hope for Every Friday is for dads, and moms, to set aside some time to be with their children. It doesn't have to be breakfast on Friday, but it should be some time that they can count on to be with just you. And perhaps many years from now, they will carry on the tradition with their own children.
