Great book, great style

This book Every Friday by Dan Yaccarino is one of my favorites to check out of the library and now a favorite of my son's as well. I have always been fascinated with the fifties and early sixties because the early fifties is when my parents 60 year relationship began and the late fifties and early sixties is when my siblings were born and it was all the life before me. Also I love the clothes, the furniture, and the mid-century modern aesthetic. Dan's style is great his story is simple and poignant and you wish what happens in this book that takes place in the fifties or sixties still happens somewhere every Friday today.


  1. He does have a wonderful style. The gestures are precious. Great post, Jen!

  2. I've never read that book. Looks cute though. We're going to have to look it up at the library! Thanks for sharing Jen!

  3. We just used Every Friday for our Father' Day themed storytime. I could see the parents misting up! Good times!
