Today with Meg and Ted Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Toddlers Meg and Ted discover so much in a day! "Today is a good day to stand on one foot . . . Today is a good day to look at a foot. Today is a good day to eat our favorite food . . . and today is a good day to try something new." In the course of a day, young children encounter a wide range of experiences and emotions. This book captures the sense of wonder felt by all children as they explore the world with their zenlike focus. The book's simple text and old-fashioned art style evoke the gentle look and feel of antique children's books, but with a fresh twist that is very much

of . . . today.

Review:

"Cherubic sibs Meg and Ted show readers how a single, relatively unremarkable day can prove itself more than worthy of the encomium 'it's all good.' 'Today is a good day to be very still,' writes debuting author Gee, showing her two characters in extreme closeup, admiring a butterfly perched on a flower. Flip the page, and the duo is seen chasing the butterfly on foot and tricycle, demonstrating that today is also 'a good day to be very, very quick!' Even potential downers are put into perspective: when Ted gets put in a time-out chair, Gee notes (in one of the book's few attempts at humor), 'Today is a good day for some quiet time, alone.' The sunny palette, combined with an almost clear line style of illustration, gives the pages an appropriately chipper energy; the repetitive vocabulary and sturdy, easy-reader typeface may encourage audiences to try their hand at reading aloud. But all that isn't quite enough to dispel an aura of stodginess from the pages. Meg and Ted's unplugged fun, while laudable, feels like it's unfolding in a distant era. Ages 2 — 5. (Jan.)"
