Celebrate liking yourself! Through alternating points of view, a girl's and a boy's, Jamie Lee Curtis's triumphant text and Laura Cornell's lively artwork show kids that the key to feeling good is liking yourself because you are you.

This is a fiction book about a young girl who feels a different mood everyday. The story takes place in many different settings where each mood is described. She tells us that it is okay to feel different ways, because whatever we're feeling inside is okay. ( )

I loved this book! I loved this book for many reasons. One reason being the fact that every page rhymes, it makes it easier and fun to read through the book. For example, “Today my mood’s bad. I feel grumpy and mean. I picked up my room. It still isn’t clean. I forgot to feed Franny and water the fern. And the cocoa I’m making is starting to burn.” Another reason I love this book is because of the illustrations and the colors the illustrator used to make the pages pop. For example, the page where the author writes, “Today I am angry. You’d better stay clear. My case is all pinched and red ear to ear.” The picture is the little girl all red spread out onto two pages and there are different shades of red all over the page. It shows you what is happening without having to read the text. The illustrations really tell the story. I think the big idea of this book is that everyone has different moods on different days and whatever one is feeling on the inside is okay. Sometimes you can be happy and other times you can be sad, it’s okay to feel different types of ways. ( )

I liked this book for several reasons. This is a great book for younger children because it is a book about moods and how children express themselves. The character, a little girl who is going through her moods, makes this story because she as a character is well-developed and believable. Each day, shes in a new mood and encounters things other students at an elementary level could encounter too. This helps the reader relate to the character and make the book feel more realistic and relate-able. The language of this book is very neat. The language of this book is descriptive and patterned, it keeps readers interested because the book is written in stanzas that rhyme. The big picture of this book is that it is best to be happy, because out of all her moods things are best when she and everyone is happy. ( )

The illustrations in this book are a little too wild and chaotic for my taste, but children will love the vibrant colors. They will also love the rhythm and rhyme because it sounds like a song. Children will be able to relate to this book because the author gives so many different details. "I'd rather feel silly, excited, or glad than cranky or grumpy, discouraged or sad. But moods are just something that happen each day. Whatever I'm feeling inside is okay!" This book lets children know that it is okay to feel sad or mad. This book can also be used in the curriculum for synonyms or descriptive words.

How can we become more aware of our emotions so that our responses follow the Golden Rule? ( )
