Choose Your Days

Booklist Online

Upon her birth, Corky receives a calendar marking her days and a special list of things to dream and do from a bespectacled old bear. And, handing her a key, the bear tells her, “Choose your days, make them sunny or gray.” And so Corky lives out her days until she is old and bent, realizing too late that she has not used her time wisely enough. With a few old pennies, she buys herself a bit more time to finish things undone, until, finally, Corky meets wise Bear for one last journey. Sparse in both concept and execution, this gentle tale prods readers to make mindful choices and focus on the things that truly matter. The illustrations are stripped down to the barest essentials, but the warm palette, richly textured brushstrokes, and stylized figures radiate a cozy warmth. With clocks that warn, “I’m afraid your time is up,” the pages of this subdued story offer an antidote to the urgency of busy modern lives.
