This book teaches kids that it is okay to feel however you feel and it is okay to express your emotions and show who you really are. Through the book the kids can learn to express their emotions and can laugh at the funny things kids in the book are getting upset over. ( )

This is a great book to teach how characters feel different forms of emotions. This book is a wonderful book to demonstrate what it means to feel silly ,sad ,excited,and other types of feelings. I would hold a grad discussion and show young readers how to act out each emotion. ( )

This book was a bit cliché--telling kids to be themselves and that every feeling they might have is okay--but I liked it. It was very honest, for people do find themselves in these situations and feel these emotions all the time. I could relate to a lot of it, particularly the part about feeling angry when two friends leave you out of a playdate. I remember that happening many a time when I was in grade school, and similar things happen even now that I am in college. Clichés can be tiresome and annoying, but to children, they hold significance and comfort, and when your mind is young, clichéd messages are a big influence. This book shows kids that they are not alone in their feelings and emotions, and that gives them confidence. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0060245603, Hardcover)

Jamie Lee Curtis has starred in many movies, but she says that the children's books she has written mean more to her than any of her films. She and artist Laura Cornell have previously collaborated on two bestselling books: Tell Me Again About the Night I Was Born and When I Was Little: A Four-Year-Old's Memoir of Her Youth. This time, we follow a little girl with curly red hair through 13 different moods, beginning with silly: "Today I feel silly. / Mom says it's the heat. I put rouge on the cat / and gloves on my feet." Of course, silly soon turns to grumpy and mean... to excited... to confused, and so on. Recognizing one's own mood swings is a developmental milestone, one that some adults haven't yet mastered! Cornell's watercolor illustrations--wildly expressive and energetic--effectively capture the volatility of our redheaded star. Whether she is happy or mad or dancing a solo in jazz, she is always "full of pizzazz," and this book is, too. A clever mood wheel on the last page allows young readers to change the little girl's expression--both her eyes and mouth. This is silly fun with a smart lesson for children from ages 4 to 8. --Marcie Bovetz
