    • Backward Day sound interesting? It might be if it involved more than putting on your clothes in the wrong order, going down the stairs backward, and sitting wrong was round in the chairs. Kudos to the kid for realizing it was a weak idea; otherwise how were they going to eat breakfast?


    • Seems aimed at a lower age so I guess we read it too late. Very simple and not really inspiring to try a backward day actually. Hey kids - who wants to be extremely uncomfortable with your underwear on over your coat, not eat breakfast and go straight back to bed?


    • I can't believe this was written in the 50s! It's a little wordy compared to today's standards, but the story is deliciously irreverent. The little boy announces it's backward day, and his whole family just goes along without questioning it. A perfect example of "playful parenting"!


    • Could you find a more charming story about a little boy who on a whim decides "When it's backward day, it's backward day." My daughter wanted to know when backward day would come and got up and started walking backward (with her head turned so she could see where she was going) out of the room.


    • A boy wakes up and decides that today is Backwards Day, so he does everything backwards. It's a simple book that tells the story without frills.



    • Can you imagine your whole day lived backward, from beginning to end? When you got up, you’d put on your jacket, then your shirt and pants, and over those your underwear, because after all, backward is backward, and on a backward day backward is the way everything has to be. You’d walk downstairs backward and sit on your chair backward with your back to the table, and when your parents greeted you in the morning you’d say, of course, “Good night.” I think that would be a very confusing [...]


    • Krauss, Ruth, and Marc Simont. The Backward Day. New York Review of Books, 2007. This is the story of an imaginative young boy who decides that it is a "backwards day." Consequentially, everything he does throughout the day is entirely backwards. From putting on his clothes to sitting at the breakfast table, there is nothing he does normally. The book was tough to read simply because there was a lot of text to read, yet there wasn't very good illustrations in it. However, the author did make goo [...]


    • The New York Review of Books has been republishing a number of out of Children's classics. The Backward day is a bit slimmer and for a younger audience than most of their other selections but nevertheless this volume is lovely and the original illustrations are charming. I can imagine this story would be quite a hit with younger children.


    • I thought this book was hilarious only because I went through an "opposite day" phase when I was younger and this book sums it up pretty well. The boy went more out of the way than I did, like sitting backward at the table, but it was still fun to think of other things he could do. I love this book.


    • Ruth Krauss is wonderful. What I like most about this book is how the boy's parents respond to his backward day idea. They lovingly, playfully go along with it, letting the boy lead them through his experiment. What a beautiful example of rolling with a child's imagination.


    • The story of a boy who one day decides to do everything backwards. You could use this book to teach diversity and how everyone is unique.
