The picture book Hello Day presents a whimsical kid’s-eye view of a day, filled with wonders big and small . . . which sometimes clashes with their parent’s more practical plans.
 
Hello apple,
hello shelf
I can reach you
all by myself.
 
When a father and child finally get out of the house, the toddler says “hello” to everything from a snack to a squirrel to a sidewalk puddle. Meanwhile, Dad stays focused on getting the duo from point A to point B. But the eager and enthusiastic “hellos” from his kid remind Dad to pay attention to the here and now.
 
Told entirely in the child’s voice, and boldly illustrated in vibrant colors and joyful lines, this picture book from Charlie Mylie celebrates gentle parenting and invites kid and adult readers alike to get curious about the small wonders hiding in everyday moments.
Charlie Mylie is an author and illustrator living the dream in Kansas City, Kansas. Its only occurring to him now that his interdisciplinary art degree from Kansas City Art Institute might have actually helped in making childrens books. His wife and preschooler, however, have had a significant, obvious impact on his work and life, while the cat has contributed nothing. Mylie wants to keep exploring, for as long as he is allowed, how words and pictures—together—help us making sense of this confounding world. His books include Something for You, We Might See, and Out on a Limb.
