Sometimes we feel happy. Sometimes we feel sad. Sometimes we feel scared. Sometimes we feel mad. Sometimes it's hard to know exactly how you feel. Which is what Grover and Dave Mathews sing about in this Sesame Street video:
Lots of people use colors to express how they are feeling, like the characters in the new Pixar movie, "Inside Out":
The same is true for the main character in our first book (a Texas 2x2 book) My Blue is Happy by Jessica Young.
Sometimes colors just make you feel better, like in Mix It Up! by Herve Tullet.
Sometimes you just feel cranky! Crabby Pants by Julie Gassman
Sometimes you just need to color! Skippyjon Jones: color crazy by Judith Schachner (on We Give Books)
And sometimes you just have to sing! "Happy Llama, Sad Llama" by Miss Nina
Keep reading lots of books... happy ones, sad ones, funny ones, silly ones.
