Kids are moody! Enough said. As both a teacher and a mother, I know this fact to the core of who I am. One moment you can have the happiest kiddo in the world, and the next moment you have a serious CRAB! Jenny Whitehead’s book, You’re a Crab! A Moody Day Book, takes a humorous approach to the many different emotions that we see within those kids we love.
This book is adorable. It hits on every emotion you could possibly see a child exhibit. As I was reading this book, I could tell that it was clearly written for a preschool-aged audience. However, I know some older kids that would also get a kick out of the humor intertwined in the lesson about different emotions.
In addition to taking a great approach to educating kids about the different types of emotions, Jenny Whitehead’s book also introduces young children to many different sea animals and their characteristics. It is a brilliantly constructed book, and the illustrations are beautiful. I highly recommend this book for primary teachers and families with young children!
