King for a Day is beautifully illustrated book about friendship and self discovery. I love that this book is all about writing and telling a story. Kaia enjoys telling us elaborate stories and has recently asked us to start writing them down for her. So when we read this book for the first time she was literally jumping up and down. The book is about Russell and Carter and the story they create. I think it is adorable that the story is from the point of view of Russell (the dog) which somehow makes the story even cuter. Within the story there is not only a great tale about the perseverance of Carter and Russell but also a good life lesson about what is really important. When the greedy Litto and Uma try and steal Carter’s crown they both end up with nothing. From this Russell and Carter learn that The greatest treasure is you story and what role you play in it.

Editorial Review
Product Description
When Carter and Russell forget their story for a jamboree, they have only one day to write a new one. Soon a pair of unexpected characters enter to ruin the day and a remarkable adventure ensues, leaving the pair with an unexpected reward. A heartwarming tale that begins at home, this wonderfully illustrated book teaches young readers about friendship, integrity, and self-discovery, encouraging them to create their own stories using the tools within themselves. Also woven within the tale is practical advice for how to write a story, detailing how to write a fictional piece, create a page layout, and design characters.
