Tell Me the Day Backwards by Albert Lamb- ADVISABLE.

Lamb, Albert.  McPhail, David. Tell Me the Day Backwards, 40 page. Candlewick Press, 2011. $15.99. PICTURE BOOK.  Content, G. “Just before going to bed, Timmy Bear and his mama play a game they call Tell Me the Day Backwards, trying to remember everything that happened to them that day- in reverse- from watching the sunset on the hill all the way back to waking up that morning after sleeping the whole winter long.”  This is a very sweet, heartfelt book that is sure to be a favorite for parents and children alike.  I loved the idea of sharing one’s day backwards!  The illustrations are amazing.  The text is simple and touching.  Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  ADVISABLE.  Reviewer:  SL.
