K-Gr 2-The day after Friday is "Dadurday" at Mimi's house until her father's work schedule changes, and she is incredibly disappointed. When the twins arrived, Saturday became a time for Mimi and Dad to make silly-shaped pancakes, ride bikes to the library, and play in the rain. Now Saturday is "BADurday," "MADurday," and "SADurday," until Mimi decides to fill her day of waiting more productively. She decorates the house with balloons and banners to welcome Dad home, and Mom helps her make silly-shaped pancakes to share with him. Mimi's creative solution to her problem brightens the day for the whole family. Detailed watercolor, watercolor pencil, gouache, and pen-and-ink illustrations are filled with energy, emotion, and warmth. Entertaining, easy to read, and reassuring.-Lindsay Persohn, University of South Florida, Tampaα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Ever since the twins were born, Mimi has looked forward to Dadurday, her family’s new name for the day after Friday. On that day, her dad sets aside plenty of time to have fun with Mimi. When his work schedule shifts to include Saturdays, the adjustment hits her hard. That first week, waiting for her father to come home makes for a long, long day until her focus shifts from feeling sad and mad to preparing for the best Dadurday ever. Pulver’s text captures Mimi’s dilemma sympathetically but without sentimentality and allows the child to wallow in her emotions and find her own way of working through them. Brightened with watercolor, watercolor pencil, and gouache, the expressive ink drawings illustrate the story with attention to telling details and express the characters’ emotions with clarity and finesse. Well-suited for reading aloud, this sympathetic picture book will leave many children wishing for their own version of Dadurday. Preschool-Grade 2. --Carolyn Phelan
