"New York Times" best-selling picture-book author Amy Krouse Rosenthal teams with award-winning artist Gracia Lam to tell the sweet, simple story of a young child's typical dayfrom morning to bedtime. Like the title, each scene is described in three-word "ABC" phrases, such as "All Begins Cheerily" and "Always Be Curious." Secret "ABC" scenes hidden throughout the artworkas a secondary "seek and find" game of sortsencourage multiple readings and reward close-looking. An ideal read-aloud book to read just after waking or just before bed.

Rosenthal (I Wish You More) again demonstrates her ability to use wordplay to create stories with real emotional depth as she follows children through a day, described only in three-word, A-B-C phrases. It All Begins Cheerily with a boy waking up, followed by an afternoon of exploration (Ants, Butterflies, Caterpillars) and rowdy superhero play (Attention! Be Careful! says his harried mother). Later, a girl and her mother explore an Active Bustling City, and another child asks her father for a bedtime story reread: Again! (Begs Convincingly). Illustrator Lams debut couldnt be more polished and confident: her palette seems to shift with the days waxing and waning light, while her crisp, screenprintlike images have an understated poise and precision that highlights the quiet magic of everyday moments. Ages 3up. Authors agent: Amy Rennert, Amy Rennert Agency. (Nov.)
