City Day

City Day

Glenn Brucker
$22.95


Children will laugh out loud at this silly illustrated book where animals teach people a lesson about respect for nature.

After all the campers and hikers return to the city at the end of summer, a group of animals from the forest decide to pay them a visit. When Raccoon, Moose, Bear, Otter and their friends arrive in the big city, everyone is so excited to see them that they shout and run away with joy. The animals have a fun-filled day rampaging through the city and learning about human customs, until some new friends with large nets give them a ride back home.

Featuring humorous and charming illustrations, City Day will make young readers laugh while educating them about the importance of treating animals’ wilderness home with care and respect.


 

"I found myself smiling the whole time I read this. Brucker's amusing illustrations of animals and their antics in City Day will have you and your child in giggles while pondering important questions about the interface of urban and wild habitats. How wonderful!"


–Robert (Lucky) Budd, co-author of A is for Anemone

"City Day is a delightfully funny story about forest animals who decide to “camp” in the city for a day. Brucker is well known among his peers for his fantastical imagery in towherethewildthingsare. The lighthearted tone of City Day will amuse readers and perhaps lead to discussions about our role and relationship to wild habitats. Or it could lead to a discussion about whether or not racoons should put LOTS of sugar into coffee."
–Nancy Vo, author of The Outlaw and The Ranger

"Oh, how the tables have turned! City Day is a riotous romp from beginning to end. Children and parents alike will have fun vacationing in the city with all of the animals — while at the same time the story raises an important point, how much sugar in your coffee is too much sugar?"
–Ken Rolston, author/illustrator, co-creator of Ovilleworld.com
