Editorial Reviews

"Learning we are not alone in our foibles—and fears—is part of what comforts us, at every age, about good stories. To the rescue (once again) comes the Australian author Mem Fox (author of "Time for Bed" and the charming "Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes"). Here she freshens the sheets, as it were, with "Tell Me About Your Day Today," featuring a happy boy in fireman pajamas who helpfully loves the routine clarity of bedtime, "the last kiss," "the last story," the "last good night.""
"A boy loves all the nightly rituals of bedtime, but mostly he loves, after the last good night, sharing the story of the day with his stuffed animal friends Greedy Goose, Blue Horse, and Fat Rabbit…. While the rhythmic and snappy text sets up the action, it’s really the art that tells the story. Rich spreads done in acrylics stay grounded in the present, but readers piece the story of the day together through the pictures. Each animal’s perspective provides more clues until the boy’s own version brings it all together. This warm, bedtime read celebrates the comforts of sharing a story together and a day well spent."

School Library Journal, September 2012
"The succinct, precisely worded text reads aloud beautifully, while the illustrations recreate the cozy bedroom and remembered adventures in remarkably varied acrylic paintings that feature rounded forms and rich, warm colors. Best of all, the words and pictures leave room for children to engage imaginatively and verbally with the book by interpreting the visual narrative in their own words. An endearing bedtime choice."
