Book Description:
♥ Good Day or Bad Day – I Love You Anyway! ♥
The poor little thing, woke up very upset,
thinking: “how much worse can it get?”
But mom was in a hurry, and made it clear:
“We have to go now, there’s no time, my dear.”
That morning, mom had to say everything twice:
“Please brush your teeth and wear something nice.
Where are your shoes, you’re not ready at all…?
Why did you pour so much milk in that bowl?”

Another enjoyable book by Adler with wonderful illustrations and rhyme scheme. In this tale, our young monster isn't having such a good day, so he decides to throw tantrums and just be a tyrant as a means of getting through this long day, all the while not thinking about the effect his behaviour his having on his mother, who tries to keep her cool as she attempts to maintain discipline in her household.

This is one we can all relate to, young and old, as we've all had one of those days we wish would just end so we can get back to a good day. Although we don't know the reason our young monster is having a bad day, we nonetheless see the effect on his mood and how the various emotions he goes through affects his mother's own mood and her feelings. This is a good lesson about unconditional love. It's a relatable story for both children and their parents.

I would definitely recommend it for the whole family.
