See what’s become of me

forever or a dayIt’s not often that a picture book makes me think of a Bangles song and a guided meditation on the life of a prophet, but when you are talking about time, time, time, all bets are off.  Let’s all take a moment to be grateful for the mysterious and wonderful connections our brains make.

Sarah Jacoby’s Forever or a Day is a meditation on time and its passing.  It is perhaps not a book for the hyperaware and deep-thinking kid who gets stressed out by the days passing, but it’s otherwise a great read for kids, parents, and grandparents.  And its last page sums the joys of life up simply and perfectly: “I love the time I have with you.”  So true in so many situations.
