In this delightful, rhythmic sequel to One Odd Day, the young boy awakens to find that it is another strange day now everything is even, and his mother has two heads! This time, a school field trip to the zoo is dealt with in an odd, but even-handed manner. And, like its predecessor, children will spend hours looking for all the hidden objects in the incredible art. Square it all off with more "number fun" in the "For Creative Minds" section.

“This book is an asset to math programs and is also delightful as just a fun read. The illustrations add to the humor. Children will want to look at them time and time again.” – Children’s Literature Comprehensive Database
“This is a great book. Together, One Odd Day and My Even Day introduce math for the early elementary set. They succeed in getting the kids excited about math. You can't ask for more than that.” – The Reading Tub
“My Even Day will not only have readers in hysterics, but it will teach the important concept of even numbers.” - Wee One's Children's Magazine
Karen Lee has quite a humorous imagination, and it shows in her illustrations forOne Odd Day, My Even Dayand My Half Day. These books are full of odd (and even) hidden items that children will love to find. Karen has also written and illustrated ABC Safari. Each of her illustrations begins with thoughtful design and drawing. The paintings are finished with watercolor on illustration board. Karen majored in illustration at the Columbus (OH) College of Art and Design. She began her career as a storyboard artist and editorial illustrator but it wasn't until she had children of her own that she discovered her true artistic passion: children's illustration. Karen's ABC Safari was the runner up for the 2005 SCBWI Don Freeman Grant. She is also the recipient of the 2004 SCBWI Magazine Merit Award for Illustration for her wok in Highlights For Children. She and her husband, also an illustrator, are raising their family outside of Raleigh, NC. Karen's children join her on many research trips to museums, zoos and aquariums-a tough job, but someone has to do it!

Dani Sneed (One Odd Day, My Even Day and My Half Day) is a mother of three, full-time engineer, part-time writer and former substitute teacher. While teaching, Dani enjoyed explaining math in silly, but memorable, ways. Oddly enough, she was inspired to co-author One Odd Day based on a conversation she had with an elementary school librarian. My Even Day is a natural follow on to that quite odd book and there may even be a fraction of a book in the future! Dani has written several articles for Highlights for Children and five merit badge books for Boy Scouts of America including Chemistry, Environmental Science, and Geology, and is working on more. She has two co-authored bilingual books; Confetti Eggs / Cascarones and Punched Paper / Papel Picado. Dani lives in the suburbs of Houston with her family which includes a dog, Muffin and a cat, Cupcake. They are currently looking for a pet to name Biscuit. School Visit Info.
