Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful book & a joy to read! My daughter (2.5) loves a few pages in particular (breakfast, hair, ice cream) and we can spend a short or long time talking about each. Great for teaching opposites, colours, counting... You can make this book a quick bedtime read by just skimming a few pages, or really stretch it out for a loooong car ride. The illustrations are lovely!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Children's Book This is a beautifully illustrated and fun story to read aloud with a child. It is captivating, interactive, and most importantly, it's message that everyday is filled with a host of different possibilities from what you wear to where you go and who with and that tomorrow begins anew, is one we should all hold close. Exceptional and unique in this genre. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Lap Book Today by Julie Morstad, published by Simply Read Books is another perfect lap book. A book to be enjoyed in a quiet moment together with your little one. Today is a perfect book for your youngest readers. Along with her dreamy, beautiful illustrations Julie Morstad takes us through the routines and questions that arise on a typical day. I love how on each page there is a statement, and then a question posed to the reader and she provides so many choices for an answer. You can use the book to set up a morning routine with your child or use it as a jumping off point for a little bit of storytelling with your older ones. One of the wonderful things that the author has done is created a book that can be different each time you read it. By providing a plethora of choices on each page, the story can change and evolve with each reading.

From Today, by Julie Morstad:

What should I do today?
Where should I go?
Should I stay close to home
or go far away?

But first, what'll I wear?

What would you choose? ...
