Winner of the 1999 Governor General''s Literary Award for Children''s Literature - Text
"This wonderful book is a carefully composed collection of moments during one of those days when parents experience exasperation. Rachna Gilmore, a talented author,magically captures a child''s overbrimming love of life and irrepressible spirit of mischief and rebellion. This is not abook with a message; rather, it is a sweet story told in exquisite fashion.
A Screaming Kind of Day
is an engaging, "singing in the rain" book which children will love to read."
