Reviews - What do customers think about My Even Day?
Lots of fun for 4-8 year olds Jun 30, 2008
I love My Even Day! It's so much fun.
It's a strange, one could say, odd day for a young boy who awakes to find that everything in his life is even. There were eight beds, six closets and Mom had two heads and she made four flapjacks and there were two shoes and a field trip lunch of soup and ten watermelons. Oh, my!
The field trip to the zoo becomes even zanier with kangaroos for zoo guides, elephants with four trunks, lions and... so much more. And there are hidden objects for the reader to find on the pages. The story is in rhyme and is a fast-paced read that is tons of fun for children and adults. And the illustrations are quirky and eye-catching with lots of action to keep readers mesmerized.
And there's more. The ending is a clue for the next book in the series. You'll have to read it to find out what it is. And when the reader is finished, turn the page for more fun facts for Creative Minds. It's all about even numbers.
Armchair Interviews says: My Even Day is a wild, wacky, fun-filled story for children from four to eight.
5 star review Feb 21, 2008
This delightful book continues where "One Odd Day" left off in this sequel written and illustrated by the same award-winning team. Our boy wakes up to discover that life is back on an "even" keel. Mom has two heads; he sees eight beds; he's served four flapjacks; he's got two left shoes; all this before he even gets to school! The class is off to the zoo for a field trip and must pair up with a buddy for the day. In their tight lyrical format, authors Doris and Dani keep the reader laughing with the outrageous text, illustrated to thigh-slapping humorous perfection by the very comical Karen Lee. The zoo trip is a definite page-turner for the reader - you can hardly wait to see what happens next! The boy is anxious to get home and go to sleep. What will happen to him the next day? The end of the book leads the reader right into what will be a terrific sequel to My Even Day!
My Even Day and One Odd Day (as a combo) were one of Learning Magazine's 2008 Teachers' Choice Awards for Children's Books winners.
One of my favorite things in this book was the penguins in the illustrations. Ms. Lee had me anxious to see what the pair of penguins would do next! I was delighted by the outcome!
As with all Sylvan Dell books, the end of this book has an educational section "For Creative Minds" that includes: "Even Numbers Have A Match"; "Zero: An Even Number?"; "Square Numbers: Odd or Even?"; "Creative Sparks (Pairs)"; and "Defenders Of The Truth: Math Riddles".
A Fun Way to Explore Even Numbers Dec 14, 2007
If you read My Odd Day and enjoyed it, you will also delight in this companion book, My Even Day. Authors Doris Fisher and Dani Sneed have continued showing math concepts in a wonderful, zany story. It's zany in an irresistible imaginative way guaranteed to catch the attention of the reader who will be drawn into counting the six wings on a trio of lions or the Scramblesaurus with ten eyes! What is a Scramblesaurus? Read the book to discover it and its number of features. Like in the first book, the writing is in rhyme that flows easily, and the even numbers are in bold type for beginning readers.
Illustrator Karen Lee nicely integrates all of the numeric concepts in fanciful paintings with movement, rhythm, and humor! The activities at the back challenge children to count, multiply, and solve riddles. Children from Kindergarten to Second Grade will take to this book, not only for math, but also for beginning reading skills and enjoyment above all. Highly recommended.
