A boy celebrates his favorite day of the year—the titular one when his parents indulge his every desire—in this exuberant picture book from the creators of The OK Book. On Yes Day, the boy receives affirmative responses to his requests for eating pizza for breakfast, filling the cart with sugary cereal at the supermarket and staying up really late, among other things. Though the boy leads the charge, his parents, sister and even the dog eagerly join in, turning his “holiday” into amusement for the whole family (including a food fight in the yard and an invented game that involves pitching a bucket of Ping-Pong balls down the basement stairs). Via her fantasy to-do list that many kids will relate to, Rosenthal taps into children's glee at bucking rules and routines in favor of irreverent (but not too crazy) fun. Rather than plastering a “Yes!” on each page in answer to the boy's questions, Lichtenheld reveals the answer in large wordless pictures. His comic-style art, which features a shaggy-haired protagonist with a winning grin, matches the energetic vibe of the text. Ages 4–8. (May)
