A brighter, more playful cover design makes this board book edition all the more appropriate as a color concept book to use with babies or a feelings and moods book to discuss with toddlers.
About the Author
Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904. After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising. His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!, appeared in several leading American magazines. Dr. Seuss's first children's book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever! In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best- selling series, Beginner Books. This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills. Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped kids learn to read. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and two Academy Awards, Seuss was the author and illustrator of 44 children's books, some of which have been made into audiocassettes, animated television specials, and videos for children of all ages. Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues to be the best-selling author of children's books in the world.
Steve Johnson was born in White Bear Lake, Minnesota and earned a B.F.A. in illustration from the School of Associated Arts in St. Paul, Minnesota. Steve's stunning illustrations have been seen in many magazines, but it was not until Knopf asked him to illustrate No Star Nights in 1989 that he began his career as a children's book illustrator. Since then, Steve and his wife Lou Fancher has collaborated on the illustrations and design on a number of notable children's books. They are currently among the most sought after of children's book artists. Steve and Lou fell in love with the My Many Colored Days manuscript at first sight, seeing in it an unusual opportunity to create something that is at once both childlike and sophisticated. Steve and Lou currently reside in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The book is solid. The story is AWESOME. So awesome, in fact, I immediately told my husband I want another copy for the high school I work at. He even said he may need to check in for himself some days!
The story takes emotions and makes them visible, which is so helpful in just simply naming on those "off" days. I love that it explains that you can be any number of colors but makes the point that in the end, you're YOU, not your emotions.
The Core Knowledge schools and teachers can use this book in their study of art.
Excellent for preschoolers but also you can use this with older children if you are teaching this subject.
In the early months of early childhood, we discuss our feelings, this resource can be used to enable children to see the connection between colors and feelings and then the teacher can expand by having the children choose the color that matches their feeling.
Poor Little Pencil: A Happy How-to-Hold the Pencil Book (Rhyming Picture book, Toddlers, Preschool, Kindergarten, Pencil grips, Teaching Pencil Grip, Ages 3-6, Handwriting, OT 1)
It's a wonderful bonding moment between us that's lasted over a year and is still going strong. It's reinforcing the things she's learning about colors and animals. It's hopefully helping her to understand that emotions are good and it's okay that sometimes she's happy and sometimes she's not. I look forward to continuing to read this together for a long time to come, and someday years from now to pulling out a dog-eared copy to show my darling girl her favorite book and tell her about our favorite thing to do.
