Book review: Saturday, by Ian Lendler, illustrated by Serge Bloch

Lendler, Ian. Saturday. Illustrated by Serge Bloch. Roaring Brook Press, 2016. $16.99. ISBN 9781596439658. unp.  Ages 6-10. P8 Q8   

When parents are off work for the weekend, a young boy can have many wonderful activities with them in this stereotypical family setting. Colorful, cute illustrations enhance the simple story and provide a texture-like dimension.

Verdict: The book emphasizes the use of imagination and importance of families spending time together.
