About the Author

 Since the debut of his international bestseller The Blue Day Book, Bradley Trevor Greive has become a household name in more than 115 countries. A former Australian paratrooper, BTG left the army to pursue more creative misadventures. He has been bitten by wild monkeys and rabid bats and was accepted into Russia's cosmonaut training program--though those incidents were, by and large, unrelated. BTG spends most of his time in a tiny Tasmanian hamlet.

My children (ages 7 and 4) stumbled across this book at our favorite bookstore recently, and I can't say enough about the smiles and cheer it has brought them. I now plan to buy this book as a gift for every child I know (and even a few adults). Adorable black and white photos have managed to capture our animal friends in the most peculiar poses, opening wonderful dialog opportunities in our family. Even if you aren't "blue" this book will elevate the mood of anyone, any age. It's destined to be a favorite for many families.

(For the record, this is my first Amazon review. I usually don't post reviews, although I do write them professionally. When I noticed this book had no shopper reviews yet, I couldn't help but share my opinion with viewers. If you're wondering whether or not this book is a keeper, I can't think of anyone who wouldn't love it! Enjoy!)

I read this book today to a group of 9 and 10 year old children. They laughed at all the pictures and really got the message. The photographer/author managed to capture human emotions on his animal subjects and apply everyday blue situations to the frustrated and sad photos and great alternatives to the humorously positive photos. The message to empower people to change a blue day and make it a good one by doing positive activities to cheer yourself up is good for all ages. It is simply stated and beautifully depicted with amazing photographs. I had as much fun watching the kids ooing, ahing, and laughing as the kids did. Good message, fun to read, fun to see.
Caution: There is a sister book called "The Blue Day Book" which is more adult in nature. It's topics include work situations and mating. It wouldn't be appropriate for young children. The Blue Day Book for kids is great for any age.

The Blue Day Book for Kids: A Lesson in Cheering Yourself Up, purchased through Amazon has gone to several different grandchildren. It is a sensitive and common sense look at the problems that little ones have and how they can end up on the positive end of attitude. Great for little ones starting school who meet trials, bullies and not always an A. It help them not to take life too seriously, yet know that they are an important piece in life.

This is a wonderfully crafted children's book that every kid should have. The book tells of the importance of not being sad and of learning to make the best out of the day; all the while with the use of hilarious animal photos. Fans of the adult version of this book will love giving this one to their children. It also makes for a great learning tool, as children often love animals and will have fun seeing what they are doing when they supposedly feel a certain way. Younger children will probably even like it just for the pictures themselves if they're too young to read it. My daughter loves this book (more for the photos then for the narrative), and I hope you other parents give the book a try.

I have a 5 year old who has a hard time getting over things that don't go his way. I was glad to try a book that might suggest options to him without them coming from me - as he is often resistant to my suggestions. No miracles but I think we might try reading it every week or more and see how things sink in now that he's in kindergarten. The pictures are fun and inviting to turn the next page.

The pictures of the animal antics were very appealing and delighted my K students. They loved the book, could easily relate it to their days, and I found them picking it up to reread during center time. I think kids today need this book and I found it light-hearted but meaningful.

I've ordered this book many times; I give one to the teacher each year my daughter has been in school, and they always love it. It's the absolute best book ever for any age, and children love seeing the pictures when having the book read to them. I couldn't say enough good things about this book, I believe every classroom should have it, and I believe every child should have their own copy as well!

I teach parenting classes and encourage parents to read and enjoy this book with their children. The pictures are great and some of them made my son laugh & laugh! This book is a reminder that we all have bad days (and that's o.k.).
