"Reassuring advice for every day of the year" From an esteemed husband-and-wife team comes a book of daily advice and insight. In dated entries meant to be read one per day, the Spinellis open with a brief quote from children's literature, write a paragraph of lively advice inspired by that quote, and end with a "Today I will . . ." promise. The entries range from the broad (self-esteem, the environment, gratitude, and openmindedness) to the simple and specific (Today I will call a grandparent . . . smile at a new kid . . . take a walk . . . and send a snail-mail letter.). With wide appeal to fans of both children's literature and advice books, this cozy page-a-day volume (with black-and-white spot art) offers inspiring quotes, gentle guidance, and 366 "Today I will . . ." promises to thoughtful readers everywhere.

In TODAY I WILL, each day has a page dedicated to it, full of all kinds of things like being a good friend, following your dreams, the importance of taking responsibility for your own actions, and so much more. Each entry starts off with a quote from a book. Then comes a few sentences expounding upon the quote, showing how it could possibly apply to the reader's life.
Each page also has an illustration of some sort. The illustrations were great!
I think this book is perfect for older children and younger teens. Each day's page is short, quick, and to the point, making it easy to read, and only takes up a few minutes each day.
It is an ideal book for anyone looking for a way to start every day right. TODAY I WILL would make a great gift.
