The Day is Waiting by Don Freeman with Linda Zuckerman is a a uniquely created children’s book. If you’ve read or heard of Corduroy, chances are you’ve made yourself familiar with author and illustrator Don Freeman. This book is a collection of his never before published art put together to create a fantastic collaborative story with a memorable message.
The pages of this book feature quite a vast array of illustrations that work well together. This story is in a narrative speaking to the reader or listening ear. There are several question pondered such as what do we see, where can we go, and what do we find ourselves doing? It’s catchy and it’s fun to read aloud. The story can prompt conversations with children about what they personally enjoy doing, where they like to go, and whom with. The book ends with a child gaining the understanding that no matter how far we go that home is always there. A Bible verse that portrays the books message is featured in the back of the book.
My children age 6 and 4 like this book. My son has asked me to read it again and again and I very much oblige. This is a wonderful story. I think any fan of Don Freeman’s art and children’s book will like this book. Perhaps it will spark and draw many new fans as well.
