Tomorrow Most Likely By Dave Eggers (For readers in Preschool–Kindergarten)
Dave Eggers (best known for his adult books, like Her Right Foot) delves into his first picture book with the help of a veteran illustrator Lane Smith (The Stinky Cheese Man, Math Curse, Science Verse). On the title page, we see a mother tucking her son in for sleep. As the little boy falls asleep, the reader infers the mother is offering ideas of what tomorrow could “most likely” bring. Eggers writes, “Tomorrow most likely/there is a door/that leads to the world.” The little boy is seen exploring the city wearing a yellow hat. He witnesses a plane flying overhead, a rock that looks like a brain, and other dreamy whimsy.
Eggers Tomorrow Most Likely explores the promise of tomorrow and the potential that a new day brings. His words are accessible for our young readers, and a good bet to become a regular bedtime story! Lane Smith’s illustrations mix rainbow vibrancy with earth tones and enchant the possibilities of our imaginations. He gives Eggers words a world to inhabit beyond the words.
As spring continues, Tomorrow Most Likely is just the May read for a child who has the nervous nellies around bedtime. This book will remind them to look at the world through the lens of their imagination and explore what may, most likely, come tomorrow!
