Rosenthal, Amy Krouse. 2009. Yes Day!. Illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld. HarperCollins.
This is an oh-so-fun, slightly-gimmicky (but in a good way) book about the best day of the year. (And it isn't even Christmas or Halloween.) It is Yes Day! The day of the year when parents always, always, always answer yes to their kids requests.
Our narrator is a little boy--a rather cute little boy in a striped shirt. What does this little boy's wish fulfillment look like? Eating pizza for breakfast. Getting to put whatever he wants in the cart at the grocery store. Getting to have a food fight. NOT cleaning his room. Having his friend come over for dinner. The requests keep coming and coming.
This one is fun and satisfying.
