This book was recommended (along with "Nothing to Do" by Douglas Wood) by a very well-respected educator in New York City. It's so simple yet so poignant. There's a lot in it that my 7-year-old daughter can relate to therefore triggering a lot of meaningful discussions while we're reading it.Don't let its simplicity fool you. Just because it's an easy read doesn't make it unworthy for slightly older children. It's a very comforting and thought provoking book, thus a good book to own and go back to from time to time.
I got this book for my 7 year old daughter thinking she would like it and I was right. She loves it and we read it quite a few times the first day we had it home. She thinks it is so funny and of course we can all relate to having a bad day. I would highly recommend this book for a fun pick me up for just about any age under 12.
This book is great for my 4 year old. Very cute and a very easy quick read. Its especially good for those nights when theres not enough time for a long book :). And nice for when the kids have had a bit of a rough day.
We love this book. I bought it two and half years ago, and it's now in our living room bookshelf of "special" read over and over again books for my 3 kids. It helped my kids express themselves when they're having a tough day, which opens up the conversation. Now they just tell me "I'm having one of those days" and I ask them what kind using the examples from the book. Hope to pass it to the grandkids in 20-30 years.
We've all had "days like that" and this book describes the feeling with pictures and minimal words, and kids end up laughing about things that happen in the book and similar experiences they've had in life. Great and funny and sweet way to help all of us remember that tomorrow is another day. My daughter loved this book.
This is really a good little book. It shows children that they are not alone in their feelings and frustrations. The only criticism I have is that one of the days was a bad sibling day and I don't know how many toddlers know what a sibling is. I guess it's an opportunity to learn a new word. Also, the story is told by a girl. It would have been nice if it included some days with boys having a bad day.
My kids love this book. When they are feeling blue, it always cheers them up!
Didn't expect the book to be so small. It is a little bigger then the size of my hand. I got a hardcover for durability because that is important to me as a classroom teacher, but the book isn't big enough for my kids to see when they are at their desks. Its a great book, but I would have gotten a different version if I would have known the size before it came.
