Sometimes I read a book and I don’t know what to do. Sigh and savour? Read it again instantly? Pack it into my school bag to share? Just stop and think . . .?
So Many Days by Alison McGhee and illustrated by Taeeun Yoo is exactly that book.
I want to read it again. But I might cry. Or maybe not. Maybe I will just smile. This book is all about potential. Possibilities. Choosing a path and following it. Being loved. Succeeding. Falling flat. Who will you be and where will you go?
I found this book at the library. But I think I need to own it. A book to give as a gift. To someone graduating from something. Someone on the eve of parenthood. Someone who needs to be reminded: You are loved more than you know.
