Orlando on a Thursday

author/illustrator: Emma Magenta

Everything is an adventure when Orlando and his mommy spend the day together: drawing a picture, taking a walk, even having a snack. Then comes Thursday — the day Mami has to be busy in town. Remembering this makes Orlando sad, until Papi reminds him about all the super, super things that can happen when they’re together on a Thursday! Emma Magenta’s gently quirky narrative and fresh, charmingly naïve illustrations evoke a true toddler sensibility, while weaving a cocoon of love and security around young Orlando in a story as comforting as a mug of warm, frothy milk.

Changes and separations in a young child’s life are less worrisome with the help of playful rituals in this sweet, reassuring picture book.
