Picture Day Perfection

About the Book

Picture Day Perfection

It’s picture day, and the boy at the center of this charming picture book wants to make sure his picture is perfect. It seems as though everything’s going wrong for him --- he has bedhead, a stained shirt, and a big scowl on his face. But when he goes up for his picture, he thinks about his terrible appearance, and he smiles --- because he secretly wants his picture to be the worst ever taken! But just as he smiles, the photo is snapped and his plan is ruined --- the photo looks great.



Perfectly paired with the larger-than-life silliness of Dan Santat’s illustrations, this is sure to be a schoolroom favorite. It will come bound with a picture frame in the back so readers can add their own class photos to the book.
