Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.
There's a frown on my face and it's been there all day.
My best friend and I had a really big fight.
She said that I tattled and I know that she's right.

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.

Synopsis:

Chase those dreary blues away! Everybody gets the blues sometimesand#8212;dogs and cats, moms and dads, even tiny babies. Just take a look around. If you help someone else whoand#8217;s feeling sad, you might find that your blues are gone. Or maybe the Blues Guy will come along, to listen or sing the blues with you and sit by your side. A native of New Orleans, Leslie Staub wrote this story after experiencing Hurricane Katrina. Yet this bookand#8217;s rhythmic, bluesy text and hip, eye-catching illustrations are just right for anyone whoand#8217;s ever felt those mysterious feelings of sadnessand#8212;then found that hope and sunnier skies are close at hand.

Synopsis:

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.

My daughter received this book as a birthday gift last year, and still requests it for her bedtime story a couple of times a week. It's so much fun to read, and she doesn't even realize she's learning about different moods and feelings. I also love the illustrations, they match the text perfectly.
