Today I Feel Silly & Other Moods That Make My Dayby Jamie Lee Curtis
Synopses & Reviews
Today I feel silly. Mom says it's the heat.
I put rouge on the cat and gloves on my feet.
I ate noodles for breakfast and pancakes at night.
I dressed like a star and was quite a sight.
Today I am sad, my mood's heavy and gray.
Silly, cranky, excited, or sad--everyone has moods that can change each day. Jamie Lee Curtis's zany and touching verse, paired with Laura Cornell's whimsical and original illustrations, helps kids explore, identify, and, even have fun with their ever-changing moods.
Here's another inspired picture book from the bestselling author-illustrator team of Tell Me Again About the Night I Was Born and When I Was Little: A Four-Year-Old's Memoir of Her Youth.
The young boy in this story is often happy. But sometimes he cries and cries--then it's "Hello, Blues. Hello, Blues Guy." The Blues Guy is an imaginary character based on a blues musician, but he's more like a lovable uncle. He sits by the boy's side to listen and chat, and they sing the blues together. The boy'sand#160;experience with the Blues Guyand#160;is further enhanced when they fly off into the sky and seeand#160;that everybody gets the blues sometimes: moms, dads, dogsand#160;and cats, even little old ladies from New Orleans. Looking beyond his own circumstances helps dry the boy's tears. And it's "Goodbye, blues. Goodbye, Blues Guy."
and#160;and#160;and#160; With a rhythmic, bluesy text and hip, eye-catching illustrations, this book is for just about everybody, but it's especially well-suited to a young audience, who may not know how to overcome sad feelings.
These playful rhymes not only encourage readers to express their feelings--from confused to angry, cranky to great--they also show how to make them fun. The book comes with a "mood wheel"--a die-cut wheel with mix-and-match facial expressions--so children can identify their moods with funny faces.
