one busy day

This post is Sponsored by Disney Publishing but my opinions are 100% my own!

I have a big brother and one thing I remember very well is that I always wanted to play with him.  Especially when he was playing with his friends.  And of course he didn’t always want me to play with him.   So when I read this book I could totally relate to Mia who wanted her brother Spencer to play with her.  It’s definitely a cute book for siblings.

 About One Busy Day

All Mia wants is for her big brother, Spencer, to play with her. But he’s always too busy! So Mia paints, and dances, and explores, and keep busy all by herself. But with a little imagination and a lot of love, Mia might just be able to show Spencer that it’s a lot more fun to be busy together.  

This book is written by Lola M. Schaefer.  I’ve read a few of her books before and love them.

Lola M. Schaefer ( is the author of more than 200 books for children. Her book Frankie Stein was awarded the Children’s Choice Book Award and the Mockingbird Award. Lola lives with her husband, Ted, in the mountains of north Georgia.

This book is beautifully illustrated by Jessica Meserve.  Even my daughter’s loved the illustrations.

Jessica Meserve ( is the author-illustrator of Small Sister and Can Anybody Hear Me? She was born in Maine, studied illustration in Scotland, and worked in publishing as a children’s book designer before pursuing a career as an illustrator. Her two young children helped inspire her artwork in this book.
