Happy Book Birthday To EVERY DAY’S A HOLIDAY By Stef Wade!

What a wonderful way to start the new year: Today, Stef Wade’s newest picture book published with Running Press Kids! EVERY DAY’S A HOLIDAY is a fun, joyful story we know readers will love.



A whimsical picture book about a young girl counting down to her birthday while learning about all the other wonderful celebrations to be had throughout the year.

All kids ask a lot of questions, but Winnie is stuck on one in particular: “Is it my birthday yet?” To show her the excitement in other days, Winnie’s mom introduces her to holidays from all around the world. They celebrate everything from National Popcorn Day to Lost Sock Memorial Day! This adorable book is equal parts fun and informative, for fans of National Regular Ordinary Day by Lisa Katzenberger.




“A great read-aloud picture book for opening discussions of traditional holidays, more recently created ones, and ideas for new ones.” Booklist


“A family makes the most of every day of the year through big and small celebrations. The ambitious project is lovingly designed to stretch from Winnie’s fifth to sixth birthdays…The busy art, in a warm, bright color scheme, is effective, with a blend of vignettes and full-page images… (Winnie’s) community is a diverse one.” Kirkus
