    Yay! Yay! Yay! It's Unicorn Day! Well, I mean I suspect that every day might be Unicorn Day, but in this book we're looking at just one of those days. Filled with fun, bright pictures, this story is fairly simple with an inclusive message about kindness and friendship. I'm often leery of books told in rhyme, but this one does it very well, and I never had to guess about the rhythm of the lines.4 fun stars for this book that is perfect for anyone who loves unicorns (or glitter fights)!Thanks to N Yay!

    This was absolutely adorable, and who doesn't love unicorns? I enjoyed the theme of friendship and acceptance surrounding the "impostor" in their group, and I thought the little song at the end was really fun and would work well for a storytime read-along. Thank you so much to the publisher for providing me with this ARC in exchange for an honest review!

    This is a little too cute for words, or even for pictures. If your kids love unicorns then, this is the perfect book for them. It is full with fun happy unicorns, and one horse who wants to be a unicorn as well.So, really, despite all the glitter, and bright colors, this is really a book about friendship, and how anyone can be a unicorn and be accepted.So, super sweet, but sometimes having a slice of bright confetti colored cake is ok.Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an hon This is a little too cute for words, or even for pictures.

    It's Unicorn Day, and those magical horned equines are getting into the enchanted fun - braiding one another's manes, dodging cupcakes as they rain from the sky, getting into glitter fights - when they discover an impostor in the midst. Will they kick out the brown horse with a fake horn? Or will they prove that everyone is welcome at Unicorn Day...?There's never much doubt as to the answer to that question, as the rhyming text of Unicorn Day builds towards its message of tolerance and inclusivi It's Unicorn Day, and those magical horned equines are getting into the enchanted fun - braiding one another's manes, dodging cupcakes as they rain from the sky, getting into glitter fights - when they discover an impostor in the midst. Will they kick out the brown horse with a fake horn? Or will they prove that everyone is welcome at Unicorn Day...?There's never much doubt as to the answer to that question, as the rhyming text of Unicorn Day builds towards its message of tolerance and inclusivity. The accompanying artwork from illustrator Luke Flowers is colorful and full of sparkle, reminding me a bit in tone of Brigitte Barrager, who illustrated Uni the Unicorn and its sequel. Unicorns are very popular right now, so I can imagine this one going down well with fans. For my part, I was somewhat unimpressed, finding the rhymes a little awkward and the artwork a little too sweet.

    Alright, everyone. It's time to drop whatever you're doing and go request Unicorn Day by Diana Murray and illustrated by Luke Flowers from NetGalley because this book is just adorable. I requested this book largely due tot he fact that, in my work, I know a bunch of kids who are super into unicorns. And see, one of the cool things about my job is that when kids end instruction with us we get to buy them a book. Mainly, I wanted to see if this was a book that would be perfect for some of the kids Alright, everyone.

I requested this book largely due tot he fact that, in my work, I know a bunch of kids who are super into unicorns. And see, one of the cool things about my job is that when kids end instruction with us we get to buy them a book. Mainly, I wanted to see if this was a book that would be perfect for some of the kids I've been teaching and I was so thoroughly pleased with and impressed by this book that I brought my iPad into work this morning so I could show it off to my coworkers. Needless to say, I have a feeling this book is going to be going home with one of our kiddos in the future.Unicorn Day is a gorgeously illustrated story about unicorns having a giant, very pink and very glittery party and basically just having oodles and oodles of fun all day long. Naturally, all this fun that the unicorns are having has prompted someone else to want to join in as well. You'll just have to read the book to find out what happens because it's a bit of a spoiler. Unicorn Day is about having a great time with friends, acceptance, and building new friendships. And I loved every piece of it. I had so much fun reading this book and I found myself giggling over and over again at how amazing this book was and how much I knew some of the kids I work with would just die to have a copy. I can't wait for it to be published so I can buy one for myself to bring into work.This is definitely an amazing children's book and one you should really consider getting for your shelf, especially if you have or work with kids.I was provided a free copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.| Twitter | Reader Fox Blog | Instagram |

    This book is a fun and colorful story that shows how we should accept others. The unicorns have a fun day planned for unicorns, but soon find they have a fake among their midst. How they handle it is a way to bring up the topic of being different, fitting in, and sharing with young children without being preachy, My three year old boys loved this book! Thank you NetGalley for an early copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    This book tricked me! I thought that it would just be a vividly illustrated book for kids super into unicorns, but actually it is also a charming ode to acceptance with lovely Pride Parade parallels. Also, the charming rhyming scheme will make this a MUST for any rainbow storytimes I do this year.

    Such a cute little picture book for the young ones. I love all the illustrations and it has a very good message about being friends with those that are not in your little group. A message about acceptance and having fun. Many thanks to net galley and the publisher of this precious little book for giving me a copy to read and review. I highly recommend it!

    On Unicorn Day, unicorns celebrate gluttony, hedonism, and... acceptance(?). The brief message of friendship is like sneaking one solitary green pea into a bag of white chocolate M&Ms. Not that all books have to have a message, but this book is so extremely colorful and loud it nauseated me.

    Unicorn fans, this book has it all: rainbows, glitter, cupcakes. Yes, unicorns and readers will have fun, fun, fun with UNICORN DAY’s bright illustrations and light, playful rhyme, but the subtle underlying message of accepting and including those who are different is powerful. Grab a unicorn horn and join this feel-good party!

An impostor is spotted. He's definitely not a unicorn. What do you think they will do? Will they send him away and banish him from partaking in their joyous festivities or will they wrap their legs ( and hooves) around him, give him a group hug, and be friendly? This excellent rhyming book explodes with vibrant colours, animated activity, joyful attitudes and is loads of fun! Kids will delight in the energy and happiness that the unicorns share with each of the participants in a day set aside to celebrate who they are. It's a book about inclusion, friendship and uniqueness. Kids will love the positive message that I am sure will be contagious and be passed on to others around them. I love the book and highly recommend it.

    Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing a review copy. Unicorn Day is a bright, cheery picture book with rhyming text that will find a devoted audience at my library. It's not much of a substantial story-- we mostly get to watch unicorns romp around and show off their horns and manes-- but when one of the unicorns turns out to be a horse with a fake horn, the others rally around to open their day to less traditional "unicorns".

    Diana Murray's rollicking rhymes celebrate this special day (for unicorns) with Luke Flowers' spectacular bright and bold colors and faces expressing all the feelings of a celebration, but then one where something is not.quite.right. It's a happy story that comes to a surprising stop. Oh no! The unexpected happens, and children will cheer when the problem is happily solved. This will be a good low-key way to introduce the idea that everyone can be included, no matter that they are different.
