KIRKUS REVIEW

It doesn’t take expensive gifts and grand gestures to create memorable moments—just a little time. This sweet tribute to the unparalleled connection between parent and child could possibly herald the birth of important traditions in families far and wide. “Friday is my favorite day,” smiles a boy as he and his father begin their weekly journey. Whatever the weather, every Friday they walk through the city. They see shops open and construction advancing. They see friendly faces, greet passersby and count dogs. The city bustles along as they approach their final destination. At last they enter the diner where, over breakfast, they talk about all sorts of things. It would add depth to read what some of these talks are about, but the text is spare, leaving plenty of opportunity for readers to invent their own topics of conversation on their special times. The splendid retro art depicts a stylized city inhabited by all manner of folks. The colors are invented hues of original colors in a city so friendly as to be nostalgic. (Picture book. 2-6)
