A little girl glories in each special little moment of a day proclaiming, "This is my favorite..." because it's the one she's doing, seeing, experiencing right now.
Read this and then listen to the Rogers & Hammerstein song "These Are a Few of My Favorite Things," they go together quite well. The book reminds us to take pleasure in the small delights that can be found in the world. I can see why this book is being tossed around as a possible Caldecott contender. The illustrations are bold and bright, but also simple and Portis does a lot with unique perspectives. If you're having a bad day, or know a little one having a bad day. Pick this up and brainstorm some favorites you can find. I guarantee it'll brighten your day.
