Book Summary:
New York Times Bestselling Author Mark Batterson Collaborates with His Daughter, Summer, on New Uplifting Picture Book to Support Childrens’ Emotional Well-Being

Parents are always looking for engaging resources to support their children’s healthy emotional well-being and the new picture book “The Best Worst Day Ever” (a Multnomah hardcover; on sale 2/21/23) delivers as it beautifully illustrates for young readers the truth that they can take charge of their big emotions.

This charming storybook is the third picture book collaboration between New York Times bestseller Mark Batterson and his daughter, Summer Batterson Dailey.

When Mark was a kid, one of his favorite books was Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. “This book somehow helped me put my problems into perspective. ‘The Best Worst Day Ever’ is a tip of the cap to that book.”

“When you’re a kid, bad days come with the territory,” Mark added. “But we want kids to know: a bad day doesn’t have to end that way. Every day is what you make it. And the best way to win the day is make someone else’s day!”

Like the Battersons previous two children’s book collaborations, The Best Worst Day Ever is delightfully enhanced by Benedetta Capriotti’s vibrant illustrations.

Bert’s day starts with stubbing his toe on a toy. Ouch! His favorite shirt is in the wash, so he has to wear his second favorite. Ugh. Then his dog chews up his sneakers. And to make this Saturday even worse, Bert has to go to work with his dad all day. Bert is sure this is the WORST DAY EVER!

Then it starts raining as he and his dad take a quick walk. But his dad shows him that, while he can’t control what happens to him, Bert can control how he responds. Every day is a gift, and a bad day doesn’t have to end that way. Whether rain or shine, his dad assures him, Bert can always WIN THE DAY!

Inspiring and encouraging, The Best Worst Day Ever makes a great gift for parents and educators for various occasions  throughout the year, including Easter and baby showers.
