After July and The Feelings Book, it took months before I came across another book specially written about feelings. In a happy pile at Booksale SM Megamall, I found Dr. Seuss’ My Many Colored Days.
Illustrations in the book were paintings done by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher. If the pages were food, I say it’s gourmet-ish picturesque. It’s a stark contrast from Todd Parr’s stick figures and quirky pages.
Feelings or emotions felt in a day are presented in this book through colors, thus the “colored days.” It starts off with a normal day of being yellow or blue. What is yellow? Is it for happy and carefree days? What is blue? Is it always sad or can it be a different feeling? These questions are surely discussion openers. Leading questions must be on hand with young children though.
