A Day That's Ours
For the parent and child, A Day That's Ours slows down to explore the small wonders of our surroundings, and the emotions of sending a child to school.
In this heart-warming, poetic story, a father and child share the last few moments of quiet before the school year begins. They take the time to notice each detail as they spend their special day together – from making a special pancake breakfast to noticing each spider’s web and falling feather. A moving story for parents to share with their little ones as they take their first steps into school or nursery.

"An absolute joy. A Day That’s Ours is all about a special day between a father and child in the last week of summer break. While the two don’t do anything that out of the ordinary, it’s all the quality time together that makes it full of magic."
