In a poignant conversation, as elegant as a poem and as perfectly paced as a mystery, an unassuming narrator charts the course of a single day by interrogating the elastic nature of time through a series of questions and comparisons that reflect both a parent's and a child's perspective: Those seconds that count in catching the bus. The idyllic hours that slip by so quickly during a perfect day on the lake. The summer days that disappear into blissful happiness. Inviting comparisons to Virginia Lee Burton and Margaret Wise Brown, this book's musings on time are at once simple, peaceful, and profound-the work of a truly genius picture book maker.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Sarah Jacoby's beautiful book is proof that picture books can cover the most profound subjects in ways that speak to readers of all ages. A rich, moving meditation on an eternally absorbing question, this is a book to keep forever." -- LoveReading4Kids
"Forever or a Day offers a series of verbal and pictorial images to evoke the feeling of time passing and the preciousness of every moment." -- Jewish Chronicle
"This is a book that plays with the idea of time and how our perception of it is so elusive - an idea that even picture book readers totally get. Many pages wink at one another, with author Sarah Jacoby picking up images from one page and dropping them on another, so a toy train turns into a real train or a dark night sky that becomes cozy when seen through a family's window. But the point of this enchanted debut is that "we've only got what we've got, and our time with each other is the best time!" -- NPR
