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.
