Dr. Seuss's youngest concept book has stunning illustrations and imaginative type designs.

Your child will learn through Dr. Seuss' famous cadence and rhymes that it's okay to feel different and change on different colored days. Each of the primary colors is paired with an imaginative representation of moods. Children will begin associating colors with feelings ranging from brown days when they feel "slow, and low low down" to bright pink days where "it's great to jump and just not think." The board pages are filled to the edge with vibrantly colored paintings of animals your child will recognize, like a horse, owl, bear, and fish.

Your child can grow and learn with this book, as it will take on more meaning to them over time. You can begin teaching colors and animals by pointing to and naming them on each page while you read. Your little one may want to hold the book, turn the pages, and do the pointing while you name the object or color. As your child grows, they can begin to name the colors when you point to them. This also provides a new way for children to express themselves, or for you to relate to them, as you can begin referring to yellow days or blue days.

I started reading this book to my niece when she was one, and she liked to touch the animals on each page. I used the different fonts to direct my tone and reading cadence, as the bright blue days were large and thin letters for happy and excited, while the purple days had a dropping "sad" and italic "groan." My tone inflections and facial expressions helped my niece understand the feeling each color was portraying, and now that she is a bit older she sometimes tells me what color she feels like that day.

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 three 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.
