9781585362431: Someday Is Not a Day of the Week

We've all wished for Someday to get here, and now it is. Follow the tale of the young beaver, Max, and his quest to spend quality time with his parents and family. The tale for the ages and ageless will bring a happy tear of joy and love and a smile to the face of every child who undoubtedly heard the answer "Someday" after having asked "When?" An inspiring read for all of us, Someday finds Max looking for "Someday" on his calendar and realizing if it did exist, it would surely be the busiest day of the week. Don't pass on the chance to share this tale of love and the importance of family. Illustrator Kevin O'Malley and author Denise Brennan-Nelson bring Someday to frolicking life by setting aside their somedays as the days to make a difference. Parents, teachers, family and friends can do the same by picking up the book and let that special little one in their life know that they are more important and every moment together is a gift to be cherished today.

About the Author:

Denise Brennan-Nelson’s boundless energy and enthusiasm come from her days as a motivational speaker. Since the publication of her first children’s picture book, Buzzy the bumblebee in 1999, Denise has taken that enthusiasm into schools and inspired thousands of children to “bee-lieve” in themselves. She is also the author of My Teacher Likes to Say and My Momma Likes to Say, two humorous books that examine the many idioms and clichés teachers and mothers use; and Penny: The Forgotten Coin, which traces one penny's journey through history. Denise lives in Howell, Michigan, with husband Bob and their two daughters, Rebecca and Rachel.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3–A beaver longs to have some fun with the adults in his life but they are all too busy. "Someday, Max, but not today" is their favorite reply to each requested activity. He sits down with a calendar, and the days of the week tell him the truth about "Someday." When he passes on his newfound knowledge to his mother, she responds in a positive manner and suddenly all of his wishes come true. The artwork, rendered in watercolors, is expressive and conveys Max's goofy innocence. When "Someday" is transformed into "today," the abrupt shift feels like a sudden stop on an amusement ride. Perhaps the book is intended as a word of warning for adults. For children, the message appears that they need only crack a mysterious verbal code and their most cherished dreams will be instantly gratified. A clever idea, but the writing falls short of its promise.– Teresa Pfeifer, Alfred Zanetti Montessori Magnet School, Springfield, MA
