Bad Mood!

I just picked up this book thanks to a suggestion from a wise friend (and fellow mom of three):

Big Rabbit's Bad Mood

We all get into bad moods sometimes, kids included. I love Big Rabbit's Bad Mood because it provides a playful, tangible way for children and families to address the topic. It's refreshing to read a book that doesn't try to paint the world as a place where we should all be happy and celebrate everything all of the time. Sometimes we have to try several different strategies to shake a bad mood and this book provided lovely conversational moments for my family about just that. Bonus: each page is more adorable than the last with illustrations rich with fun detail. Admittedly, there could have been more meat in the the ending (I won't spoil it here) but the best aspect of the book lies in the process that Rabbit goes through to think about and address his bad mood and for that, it's a thumbs up for me. 

If you have a chance to stop by your local library or bookstore, check this one out! It's going on my gift-giving list for the year ahead!
