On an awful, rainy day, a young child drops their video game in a pond and now there is nothing to do! Gorgeous illustrations depict how the child discovers the magic and wonder of nature all around. There is beauty in boredom and in experiencing the world without a screen. --Becca

— From Children's Picture Books

Description


Give the gift of a magical do-nothing day

This picture book with startlingly beautiful words and pictures will spur imagination and a break from boredom or screen time. Now a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year

All I want to do on a rainy day like today is play my game. My mom says it's a waste of time, but without my game, nothing is fun On the other hand, maybe I'm wrong about that...

While reading On a Magical Do-Nothing Day, one gets the sense that the illustrator became lost in her drawings, and as a reader, you'll want to do the same. Perfect for fans of picture books by Julie Morstad, Carson Ellis, Jon Klassen, and Tomi Ungerer.

"Hands down, Beatrice Alemagna is my favorite contemporary illustrator," said the Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator of Last Stop on Market Street, Christian Robinson.

On a Magical Do-Nothing Day has been recognized with a Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators. Don't miss this picture book that beautifully encourages unplugged exploration.
