In this warm and tender story by the Caldecott Honor-winning creator of Thank You, Omu! , join a mother and daughter on an up-and-down journey that reminds them of what's best about Saturdays: precious time together.

Today would be special. Today would be splendid. It was Saturday! But sometimes, the best plans don't work out exactly the way you expect....

In this heartfelt and universal story, a mother and daughter look forward to their special Saturday routine together every single week. But this Saturday, one thing after another goes wrong--ruining storytime, salon time, picnic time, and the puppet show they'd been looking forward to going to all week. Mom is nearing a meltdown...until her loving daughter reminds her that being together is the most important thing of all.

Author-artist Oge Mora's highly anticipated follow up to Caldecott Honor Thank You, Omu! features the same magnificently radiant artwork and celebration of sharing so beloved in her debut picture book.

I loved everything about this book. Saturday tells the story of a Ava and her mother spending a special day together. As the day goes on, they deal with disappoinment as their plans go awry. Although adversity spoils their outing, they are able to work through it with patience and loving encouragment. This book tells a wonderful story about growth mindset, empathy and the power a loving family! Author and illustrator Oge Mora has a special ability to weave a heartfelt and visually stunning tale with her picture books. Read this book to your child!
