"What sets Jammie Day! apart from almost all other books about being stuck in the middle is that the protagonist, Cliffy, isn't bothered by the situation...wonderful details."

          ......Brooke Kerrigan drops the most wonderful details into her visual representation of life"



Carrie Snyder • Illustrated by Brooke Kerrigan • Owl Kids

      Cliffy is a middle child: a little less loud, a little less messy, and a little less conspicuous than his four siblings. One cold, winter morning, Cliffy doesn’t feel like getting dressed. So he tells his mom it’s jammie day and heads to school in his favorite footy pajamas.
      His mom might not have been paying attention. His teacher and his dad are distracted, too. So Cliffy gets away with it for a day… then a week… then a month. The other kids at school catch on quickly and start making every day jammie day, too! This playful read-aloud pokes fun at preoccupied adults and lets the kids win. Adorable, nuanced artwork elevates the story with a true-to-life depiction of family chaos, emotion, and warmth. The illustrations especially show off Cliffy’s jammies, which become more worn, torn, and beloved as the months go by.​
