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. ( )

This book is awesome! It takes the readers through a couple days in a little girl’s life where she feels all different kinds of emotions. This book is helpful for teachers to read to their students because it can be extremely relatable. It does not describe the perfect girl. It allows the readers to understand that everyone has emotions and there are certain things that can cause these emotions. The language is very simple and easy to read because it is written as a rhyme. For example, “Today I am said, my mood is 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.” It is a fun and relatable read. The main message of this book is that everyone goes through moods and whatever anyone is feeling inside is okay!

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

A child's emotions range from silliness to anger to excitement, coloring and changing each day.
