Publisher Comments:

No day is better than Friday!

Friday is my favorite day.

All week long, a boy and his father look forward to their Friday ritual — breakfast at their favorite diner. The leisurely walk through the neighborhood is just as good as the pancakes at the end.

Dan Yaccarino's bright, distinctive art style and sweet, simple story about father-son bonding make Every Friday an all-around crowd-pleaser. The weekly tradition will appeal to children who have similar routines with their parents, and kids who don't have such a tradition will be asking their dads to start one! It's a perfect gift book, too — just in time for Father's Day.

Review:

"Young children who share a dependable ritual with someone special can recognize themselves in this account of a father and son's weekly breakfast out. The elementary school — age son describes their routine, which begins before school or work (implied by the boy's book and the father's briefcase). Yaccarino's (The Birthday Fish) gouaches present an orderly city of brownstones and highrises, in all kinds of weather. On the sidewalk, the boy and his dad tip their hats to a street sweeper and a uniformed doorman. The father coaxes the boy not to linger at a toy store window, and the boy returns the favor when his dad gapes at a sports shop. They arrive at a bustling diner, where a friendly waitress predicts their order and later calls, 'See you next Friday!' Yaccarino favors late-1950s visuals. Nary a wheeled sneaker, video game or headphone detracts from parent-child closeness. The dad's gray fedora and checked blue tweed suit, and the boy's prim zip-up jacket and dress shoes, imply the era of Leave It to Beaver, while urging 21st-century readers to carve out space for togetherness. 'Everyone is rushing, but we're taking our time,' the narrator says as a full bus rolls past. In an author's note, Yaccarino explains that he and his young son set aside time each Friday, 'our favorite day of the week,' and prompts readers to 'start a little tradition like ours.' This amiable chronicle shows a cozy plan tailored to urban life, yet suggests the rewards are transferable anywhere. Ages 3-7." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"There is a great deal of warmth, charm, and appeal in the retro 1950s look of the illustrations. The tone in both the text and illustrations is contagiously upbeat." Children's Literature

Review:

"This is an excellent book for a parent and child to share, and perhaps some families will begin weekly traditions of their own." School Library Journal

Review:

"The splendid retro art depicts a stylized city inhabited by all manner of folks. The colors are invented hues of original colors in a city so friendly as to be nostalgic." Kirkus Reviews
