Our Favorite Day
author/illustrator: Joowon Oh
“Thursdays are my favorite days.”
Every morning Papa follows his normal routine. He drinks his tea, waters his plants, tidies up, and takes the bus into town. Papa enjoys his daily tasks, but there’s one day each week that is extra special. That’s the day he might visit the craft store, get two orders of dumplings to go, and possibly pick some flowers he sees along the path. But the most special thing of all is seeing his granddaughter. With its spare text and wonderfully warm watercolor and cut-paper illustrations just begging to be pored over, Joowon Oh’s tale of the singular love between a grandfather and granddaughter will nestle within the heart of every reader.
“A poignant celebration of multi-generational, unconditional love.” —Shelf Awareness (starred review)
