A young girl unapologetically decides to focus all her energy on the things that make her the happiest.

In Today Is A Me Day, our young protagonist has one whole day all to herself—and she has no intention of wasting it. She fills the day with simple pleasures: a lick of the honey spoon, a picnic with her teddy bear, a hunt for pretty stones. Even as the whole world calls to her, she knows that, for today, she can do just exactly what she wants. And who knows—maybe tomorrow she’ll take over the world!

For children and adults alike, days quickly become filled with responsibilies, tasks, plans…. Today Is A Me Day reminds us all that sometimes the best thing we can do for ourselves is whatever we want!

Today Is A Me Day, with its whimsical illustrations and simple yet beautiful narrative, will inspire any reader to explore whatever they believe to be life’s purest joys.



When EV Starkey was a kid she lived near Sherwood Forest in England, where she made forts, mud potions, and hamster hotels, and climbed trees until way past bedtime. Now she lives in Brooklyn, NY where she still climbs trees and runs the Bellport Children’s Festival.
