Here is a Leo Lionni book for the very youngest! “What shall we do today?” two mice ask each other. “Read a book? Pick flowers? Go swimming? Play ball? Climb a tree or gather leaves? Play hide-and-seek or dress-up? Talk on the telephone–until it’s time to say good night?” Lionni’s award-winning graphic art is at its best in this very simple board book that begs to be share ...more

Recommends it for: Those with young babies/toddlers
I have gotten a lot of younger babies with the beginning of the school year; or maybe my advertising with the New Mom's group is paying off...

Anyway I am looking for younger, simple books for my laptime and this went over pretty well.

2 mice try to figure out what to do for the day. Suggestions include reading a book. The picture of a telephone is a bit dated. 9/12/12

Used again and found more of the concepts a bit much for babies: climb a tree, play dress up... Blue's Friends seemed to work bett

I love this book, and so does my dad. I think it's his favorite of all my books. The illustrations are all paper tear-outs, which means that there are not too many images and colors on each page, making them easy for me to look at. It's a very sweet book. Thanks, Kelsey!
Lionni's books are timeless and this one is no different. Its illustrations are engaging. It also introduces some new vocabulary (ie. "gather leaves").
I like Lionni's style of illustration. The text is simple and since the story follows a typical day's activity it's appropriate to read any time of day.
Sometimes reading a simple book about playing is just the best way to start a happy day at home.

Short, good for final title in a program. Have the kids pantomime the text.
