In the movie, always feeling like they have to say NO to their kids and co-workers, Allison and Carlos decide to give their three kids a YES DAY — where for 24 hours the kids make the rules.
Little did they know that they’d be going on a whirlwind adventure around Los Angeles, that would bring the family closer to each other than ever before.
Written by Justin Malen, the movie was produced by Lawrence Grey, Ben Everard, Daniel Rappaport, Nicole King Solaka, and Garner.
The book is officially described as follows: “From the beloved New York Times bestselling author of I Wish You More, Amy Krouse Rosenthal, a funny look at the one day of the year that can compete with Christmas for children’s affection: YES DAY!
“No matter how silly the request, there is one day a year when kids always receive a positive response: Can I have pizza for breakfast? YES! Can we have a food fight? YES! Can I stay up really late? YES!
“Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s simple text coupled with Tom Lichtenheld’s delightful illustrations will send kids on a journey into their wildest wishes. With humor and appreciation for life’s little pleasures, the book captures the excitement of being a kid.
“Jennifer Garner uses Yes Day! as inspiration for an annual magical day of all things YES with her children. She was a little worn out after 24 hours of pure YES in 2017, but she still praised Yes Day! as ‘a fantastic children’s book.'”
