PreSchool-K–Friday and Dibley show how everyone can have a bad day once in a while–the dog won't go for a walk, someone with big hair sits in front of you at the game, and the snowman melts. Each spread has a simple statement that looks as if it were printed by hand paired with an exaggerated color illustration that allows children to empathize with and laugh at the situation. Dibley's strong use of line and unique perspective encourage readers to turn the page wondering what else will befall the multiethnic kids depicted. The reassuring conclusion that tomorrow is another day gives hope that all bad days eventually end.–Kristine M. Casper, Huntington Public Library, NY
