Alright, everyone. It’s time to drop whatever you’re doing and go request Unicorn Day by Diana Murray and illustrated by Luke Flowers from NetGalley because this book is just adorable. I requested this book largely due tot he fact that, in my work, I know a bunch of kids who are super into unicorns. And see, one of the cool things about my job is that when kids end instruction with us we get to buy them a book to take home. Mainly, I wanted to see if Unicorn Day was a book that would be perfect for some of the kids I’ve been teaching and I was so thoroughly pleased with and impressed by the whole thing that I brought my iPad into work this morning so I could show it off to my coworkers. Needless to say, I have a feeling Unicorn Day is going to be going home with one of our kiddos in the future.
Unicorn Day is a gorgeously illustrated story about unicorns having a giant, very pink and very glittery party and basically just having oodles and oodles of fun all day long. Naturally, all this fun that the unicorns are having has prompted someone else to want to join in as well, and I’m sure you can imagine where that might lead. You’ll just have to read the book to find out what happens because it’s a bit of a spoiler. In the end, Unicorn Day is a story about having a great time with friends, acceptance, and building new friendships. I loved every single piece of it. I had so much fun reading Unicorn Day and I found myself giggling over and over again at how amazing this book was and how much I knew some of the kids I work with would just die to have a copy. I can’t wait for it to be published so I can buy one for myself to bring into work.
This is definitely an amazing children’s story and one you should really consider getting for your shelf, especially if you have or work with kids.
I was provided a free copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
