Don Freeman, the creator of Corduroy, was one of the most beloved and popular author/illustrators of picture books for children. After Freemans death in 1978, colleagues and his wife decided to use his never before published artwork and make a commemorative book using his wonderful illustrations. Paired with Linda Zuckerman's thoughtful rhyming text, The Day Is Waiting takes readers on a tour of our big, wide world and reminds us that no matter how far we roam, we always have home to come back to.
This classic tale is imbued with Freemans gentle humor, spontaneity, and his appreciation of the variety and complexity of human experiences, creating a book that children will enjoy reading again and again.
Fitzysmom4 Stars Out Of 5Review from Rambles of a SAHMMay 13, 2015FitzysmomQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4The house that hasn't read Corduroy over and over and over is undoubtedly a rare one. I know that our copy of the book is tattered and worn but well loved. My children enjoyed the little bear's escapades in all of the books and I loved the artwork.
When Don Freeman died in 1978 his family and close family friend, Linda Zuckerman decided to publish one last book with Don's beautiful artwork and Linda's words. The result is The Day Is Waiting.
It is everything that I think embodies Don's work. The story is adorable and leads children on a little adventure then safely returns them home to embark upon a new adventure another day. What I truly love about it is the beautiful artwork. Included are illustrations done in pastel, watercolor and other media. Such a treat for the eyes!
If you enjoy reading the Corduroy books with your kiddos then you really must get this one to round out your collection. It is a beautiful tribute to a man that touched so many of our childhoods.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

The Day is Waiting is a wonderful story. The story is beautifully illustrated and goes on a journey of what is outside of our window. It looks at our world.. so big with a lot to offer, people, places and things to do. No matter what you do, where you go or who you see, there is one place that you can always go~ home. Instilling what hopefully we all want our children to know: Where ever your life takes you, your family or career, you can always come H.O.M.E. Beautiful story.
