    I really liked this one! My granddaughter did too... text in rhyme, illustrations funny, and in the back is a face you can change the eyes and mouth to show different silly emotions.

    Okay... I HAVE A NEW FAVORITE BOOK!!! This is a great book that not only has rhyming words but introduces a variety of diffrent moods and feelings other than the basic happy, sad, and angry. This book uses great descriptive words and explains why the cute little girl is feeling the diffrent moods that she feels. Not to mention the wonderful, fun, and detailed pictures on each page. I have to get this book right away. I wish this was not my first time reading this. I cannot wait to read this book to my class. This book also has a fun interactive back page in which children can change the little girls eyes and mouth according to her mood. The back page is also great for matching words because you have to match the top word (mood) with the bottom word. Oh, and I love, love, love the cat (hahaha). Extension Activity: I will create a chart that is titled: "How do you feel today?". The chart will also have diffrent sections labled, happy, excited, cranky, angry, silly, and sad along with a small picture of a face showing each feeling. After reading this book, I will allow the children to come up to the chart one by one and write their name under how they are feeling. I will help the children that cannot write their names yet.

    I really enjoyed this book and the enthusiasm that my classmate used. Children relate to this as well and well, we all feel silly sometimes. The pictures are amazing, bright and silly. I would definitely read this to my children as well.

    I adore this book! This illustrations are fun and the story is about a little girl who goes through a variety of emotions during her day. The book gives great examples of why she feels the way she does and sends the message that its ok to have feelings and its normal. The emotions the girls feels and examples given I think are relatable to children.I loved the rhyming as I found it really captivated my attention to see what's going to happen next, but I am a sucker for rhyming books! I'm looking forward to reading more of Jamie Lee Curtis's children's book in the future. extension- I would make a poster board and title it "How are you Feeling today?" have a variety of faces showing different emotions attatched with velcro and have children state how they are feeling or have felt about a situation and select a face they think would match for said emotion.

    Once I saw who the author was, I immediately got excited. I know Jamie Lee Curtis to be an actress, but never an author, so it was refreshing to read this story. She is pretty funny in some of the movies that I have seen her in, and she adds humor with the way she writes in the story. However, what I enjoyed most of all about this book was the illustrations and the "How do You feel today" revolving facial expressions at the end of the book. It is a great tool to use and even to make for children to associate expressions with the different types of feelings.

    I like Jamie Lee Curtis's books most of the time. They usually have me giggling by some point. This one did too but I thought it fell flat at the end. I'm probably overthinking this, but I thought it had a poor message: Moods are just something that happen to us (happy, sad, grumpy, worried, excited) and we should just roll with it. They're not something we have any control over. Bah! That would be a rollercoaster of a life.

    I am loving the entire collection of books written by Jamie Lee Curtis. Let's face it, parents: how many kids books are there in your child's library that you are actually interested in reading? How much Clifford or Maisy can one adult really stand? Thankfully, Curtis' books are entertaining and meaningful for kids and adults slog through the fifth reading of Dora and know you have something to look forward to with Jamie Lee Curtis.

    Christian gave me this book for Christmas after we were engaged as a gag gift. When Christian called my dad to let my dad know he was going to propose, my dad's reply was "You do know she's really moody, right?" My kids love to read it too and I really like the illustrations. And if you notice, my avitar comes from this book.

    Great book to try to get the young ones to share their feelings, confusions or frustrations. sometimes it is difficult for children to articulate their thoughts and acknowledge their feelings so this book can act like a prompt and encourage them to express.

    I would consider this book one of my all time favorites. It's no more than a children's book with an awesome message- It's okay to feel crazy feelings!!! :) I'm also drawn to the cute little curly haired redhead, I see my future little girl looking similar to this bubbly child.

    I read this book. And I think kids will like this book because it will help little kids learn about feelings. my favorite feeling in this book is excited because it made me laugh at the end because she said that she has a crash on her teacher.

    I love reading this with my lower primary kids and discussing feelings and appropriate ways to cope with those feelings.

    SUMMARY: This story is about a young girl's battle with her daily, conflicting moods such as silly, angry, sad, etc. Each page begins with her describing the mood she is in and why she is feeling this way. For example, one day she is angry because her friends had a play date and did not invite her. The illustrations of this story are very fun and help portray the speakers' feelings. The text of this story rhymes which makes the book a fun read! "Today I Feel Silly" helps children explore their emotions and have fun with their changing, daily moods. THEME: The theme of the book is self-recognition of feelings and emotions. By providing relatable examples, children can tap into their feelings and examine what may make them feel angry, silly, joyful, etc. PERSONAL RESPONSE/RECOMMENDATION: I chose to review this book because growing up it was one of my favorites. I loved books that rhymed and had fun pictures to read along with. I identified much with the main character because I would never know what mood I would wake up to! I would recommend this story to any child in 2nd grade or younger. It is important to be in touch with your emotions to learn how to cope and this book helps that development.

    This children's book created by the spectacular duo of Jamie Lee Curtis and Laura Cornell follows a young girl as she describes her different moods on different days. Written as a rhyming poem, this story uses age-appropriate language to explain what happened to cause the emotion and how that emotion makes her feel. For example, she warns "you better stay clear" because she feels angry that her diverse group of friends left her out one day. Throughout this colorful story, the main character feels many emotions such as joy, confusion, and loneliness which may be difficult for young readers to navigate. I believe this story is written and illustrated in a way that will not only keep the interest of young readers, but also provide them with several opportunities to think/discuss how certain emotions make them feel and ways they might turn negative feelings into more positive ones. The final page of the book also provides an interactive element where you can change the characters eyes and mouth to represent different emotions.

    I love how this book depicts the emotions children, and some adults, go through. It really is ever changing especially when they are interacting with other children.I feel that the book teaches children that it is okay to feel however they feel. What I would add to this is that no matter how we are feeling, we still have to respect others. I would read this book and ask the children if they ever feel the way the character in the book does and what they do when they don't feel so great to try to feel better. I would have a mood wheel available during dramatic play where they can dress up and act like the mood they spin.

    This book explains how important to know that its' okay to have different emotions throughout the day or to even have one emotion all day. How are you today? When teacher ask to children, can children express their feelings accurately? This book is suitable for teaching children how to express their feelings. This story and emotional express words help children to raise self-esteem to accept their own everyday feelings. The illustration depicting the facial expressions of the main character and the detailed environment is also helpful for the children to understand and interest in this book.

    I enjoy the many emotions this book describes, as well as reminding us that it's okay to feel all of these emotions at times. I also like how there's a wheel at the end of the book to make your own face of the emotion you're feeling for that day. This helps children reflect on their own emotions and can bring forth a conversation about their feelings. Topics: emotions, family life, self-image, friendships, fights, responsibilities, school activities, it's okay to feel emotions, reflection on own emotions.

    This is a colorful book that goes through every emotion. When it talked about the emotions it gave a reason for them. This can help children to better relate to the different emotions in the book. The book also has rhyming in it. At the end it talked about what moods the character liked and which moods they didn't. Children need to learn that they will have these emotions and whether they are good or bad they are okay to have.

    Great book for ASD kids or kids that struggle with understanding the concept of feelings. The last page is interactive as it shows the way our faces look when we are excited, sad, cheerful etc.Can be a good book for preschools/kindergarten story time at school or in the library setting, or to buy if your child is seeing a psychologist, and even if the child is having trouble conveying how they feel.

    This is a book that can be used to assist children with describing, expressing and appropriately dealing with their feelings or frustrations. At times it can be difficult for children to express or understand their thoughts or their feeling because they don't know how. Also has an interactive page in the back to change facial expressions according to child's mood.

    Who knew that Jamie Lee Curtis wrote such fascinating children's books?! You did? Well, I did not know. This is a silly book that introduces social/emotional skills to young children. Children can use this book as a guide to express their feelings such as "I am happy" or "I am sad". Children will be able to better pinpoint their feelings after hearing this book.

    This book is a good introduction book into feelings and emotions. I liked the illustrations and how the author made you pay attention. I dont think it was diverse enough to explain emotions and how some are natural. I feel like this book would make my child ask more questions about different feelings and emotions.

    This is a great book to use when covering feeling identification.The illustrations are colorful and bright. The book really does a good job of breaking things down on a kids level. also a great wheel activity on the last page that you spin around to show the mood your child is in that day.

    A fun book that asks children: how do I feel today? The interactive last page let's them spin facial expression into funny feelings like angry/excited. The rhymes add cadence and the images offer opportunities to interpret why the little girl is experiencing the feelings that she's having.

    The things we liked about this book are it tells about how we feel and that it's okay to feel sad or angry or happy. There are lots of details that tell us how the girl feels. It was a fun book to read, but we also thought it was too long and the printing was too small to read.

    This is another excellent book to help children understand different ways they are feeling. It teaches the children that there can be many reasons why you may feel a certain way, and why. It also teaches coping skills. I really enjoyed this book.

    This book shows great emotions on how someones day is going. I enjoyed reading this book because it relates to how people feel throughout each new day. Some days are great and some are not so good, but if you tell yourself you are going to have a great day then you most likely will!

    I use this book in a classroom group where I try to teach kids how to identify feelings. I think it does a good job of giving kids language around feelings. My only complaint is that there are parts of this book that don't seem to reflect the lives of the black and brown kids with whom I work.
