Book Review: One Today

ONE TODAY is a picture book adaptation of Richard Blanco’s amazing poem written for President Barack Obama’s second presidential inauguration.
Blanco’s poem tells the story of a day in America from early morning through night.
Best known for his comic series such as Captain Underpants, Dav Pilkey brings the poem alive through his vibrantly painted illustrations.
Librarians will find this picture book to be an excellent read-aloud book.
