Today I feel silly. Mom says its the heat. I put rouge on the cat and gloves on my feet. Silly, cranky, excited, or sad -- everyone has moods that can change each day. Jamie Lee Curtis's zany and touching verse, paired with Laura Cornell's whimsical and original illustrations, helps kids explore, identify, and have fun with their ever-changing moods. So how do you feel today? Are you happy and walking on air? Or lonely and feeling very small? Or perhaps you just can't help feeling very very silly! AGE 3-7
