Choose Your Days

School Library Journal

Old Bear is there when Corky is born, and as he is the keeper of time and keys, he provides her with calendars for all her days. And so Corky lives, filling her lists of things to dream and to do, her growth to old age portrayed by two spreads of bike riding: a tricycle with a teddy bear, and a two-wheeler with a cane propped on the back tire. With just a few days left, Corky asks Old Bear for more time, to find that she holds the key and can choose how she fills the remainder of her days. Though the large stretches of color and organic shapes painted with heavy brushstrokes have visual kid appeal, younger readers may not be able to grasp the sophisticated themes of aging, living life to the fullest, and accepting death of any kind of change with grace. Verdict: A whimsical, philosophical selection, though the spiritual metaphor misses the mark.
