Norman Rockwell's A Day in the Life of a Boy

By

A day in the life of an American boy, illustrated with Norman Rockwell's iconic illustrations of life

A boy wakes up beside his beloved pet mutt for just another ordinary school day, but some surprises lie ahead! Here is one of Norman Rockwell’s most popular works, paired with a rhyming text that’s perfect for reading aloud or sharing with a grown-up. In classic Rockwell fashion, the almost two dozen pictures will elicit wry smiles of recognition, from young and old, at childhood’s everyday pleasures. At the back of the book is a short biography of Rockwell, as well as a note by Chuck Marsh, who, as a young boy more than sixty-five years ago, posed for the unforgettable series of pictures.

Norman Rockwell is America’s best-known, best-loved illustrator. While still in his teens, he was hired as art director of Boy's Life, the official publication of the Boy Scouts of America. Eventually he produced work for such magazines as Life, Look, and The Saturday Evening Post, for which he eventually produced 322 covers. In 1977, the artist received the nation’s highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Will Lach has written many children’s books about art, music, and natural history. He lives in Brooklyn with his family.
