The Day is Waiting: illustrated by Don Freeman, words by Linda Zuckerman

I loved reading the book Corduroy to my son.  Don Freeman is a wonderful illustrator.  The Day is Waiting is a collection of Don Freeman’s sketches and paintings that had never before been published.  The words by Linda Zuckerman try to tie them all together by taking the child on a journey of places and things waiting to be seen. 

I expected something a little different from this book.  It’s not a heartwarming story like Corduroy, but the illustrations in this book make it all worth it.  It is a very quick read that only takes a couple of minutes.  Honestly, I believe that I enjoyed it more than my three year old son.  He liked the illustrations but the story just wasn’t there for him to make him want to keep re-reading the book.  I still love it and think it is a beautiful book to have on my children’s bookshelf.
