This delightful picture book from bestselling author Mark Batterson and his daughter encourages young children to make the most of each day--even when they encounter frustrations along the way.
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! This charming collaboration between bestselling author Mark Batterson and his daughter, Summer Batterson Dailey, brings home for young readers the truth that they can take charge of their big emotions.
