So Many Days - Alison McGhee (Picture Book)

Released January 2010

Reviewed by Bob Walch

Life is full of surprises and this little picture book reminds the reader to be prepared for whatever opportunities life offers. The book's refrain - "So many doors in all your days, so much to wonder about. Who will you be and where will you go? And how will you know?" - underscores of the unlimited possibilities that await one.

As the child pictured in the book samples some of life's offerings he realizes he is stronger, wilder, and braver than he ever imagined. But, above all, he grasps a very simple fact - "You are loved more than you know."   

This is a book that will appeal to both young people and adults. Designed as a "gift" book it would work for occasions as varied as graduations, weddings, new babies, and even difficult "transitions" in life. And, yes, it will also appeal to children about five years of age and up.
