Staff Reviews

This beautiful book is a celebration of childhood independence, nature, mindfulness, and the pleasure of simple things. Gorgeous illustrations are perfectly blended with simple text to create a joyful reading experience - a great book to share with children and adults alike. — Rachel Person


A young girl unapologetically decides to focus all her energy on the things that make her the happiest.

A young girl knows the world is calling for her, but she decides to make today a "me" day, focusing all her energies on a list of things that make her happy. And, oh what a list it is! She'll pack the day lunching with her teddy bear, brewing wild teas, and even working on her warrior pose. Combined with gorgeous handmade collage work by the founders of Finland's Polka Paper.

About the Author

When EV Starkey was a kid she lived near Sherwood Forest in England, where she made forts, mud potions, and hamster hotels, and climbed trees until way past bedtime. 

Now she lives in Brooklyn, NY where she still climbs trees and runs the Bellport Children’s Festival.

Polka Paper is artists' Kristiina Haapalainen's and Sami Vähä-Aho's studio and company that works on illustration and produces stationery.

Praise For…

"A fair-skinned child wearing a breezy shift dress heeds the call of their own free spirit one day, foregoing the world to do whatever moves them... Starkey’s spare text has an effortless flow that fits well with the timeless, peaceful vibe of Haapalainen’s and Vähä-Aho’s bucolic backdrops." —Publisher's Weekly

"I forgot how simply we can talk to children yet present them with deep thoughts. I cannot wait to share this book with my grandchildren."
— Isabella Rossellini, Actress, Author, Model, Activist
