Yes Day! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld HarperCollins, May 2009
Don’t you remember feeling like all that your parents did was say “no”? Don’t you feel like sometimes you, as a parent, say “no” all of the time? Well welcome to yes day. In this book a boy is granted “yes” to every thing he wants to do for one whole day.
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst Aladdin, July 1987
This book sat on my bookshelf for my entire childhood. I absolutely love it. Who hasn’t had a bad day? Alexander can tell you all about his. Sometimes you just want to say, “Me too, Alexander, me too.”
