Soon to be a Netflix Film in March 2021!
From the New York Times bestselling creators of I Wish You More, Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld, a funny look at the one day of the year that can compete with Christmas for children's affection: YES DAY!
No matter how silly the request, there is one day a year when kids always receive a positive response: Can I have pizza for breakfast? YES! Can we have a food fight? YES! Can I stay up really late? YES!
The simple text coupled with delightful illustrations will send kids on a journey into their wildest wishes. With humor and appreciation for life's little pleasures, Yes Day! captures the excitement of being a kid.
Jennifer Garner uses Yes Day! as inspiration for an annual magical day of all things YES with her children. She was a little worn out after 24 hours of pure YES in 2017, but she still praised Yes Day! as "a fantastic children's book."
A boy celebrates his favorite day of the year the titular one when his parents indulge his every desire in this exuberant picture book from the creators of The OK Book. On Yes Day, the boy receives affirmative responses to his requests for eating pizza for breakfast, filling the cart with sugary cereal at the supermarket and staying up really late, among other things. Though the boy leads the charge, his parents, sister and even the dog eagerly join in, turning his "holiday" into amusement for the whole family (including a food fight in the yard and an invented game that involves pitching a bucket of Ping-Pong balls down the basement stairs). Via her fantasy to-do list that many kids will relate to, Rosenthal taps into children's glee at bucking rules and routines in favor of irreverent (but not too crazy) fun. Rather than plastering a "Yes!" on each page in answer to the boy's questions, Lichtenheld reveals the answer in large wordless pictures. His comic-style art, which features a shaggy-haired protagonist with a winning grin, matches the energetic vibe of the text. Ages 4 8.
