Theo's Mood

Foreword Review — Fall 2013

On “Mood Monday,” the young students in this precious book discuss events that influenced their emotions over the weekend. Dealing with the birth of a new baby sister, Theo is bursting with numerous feelings at once, while his classmates describe the pride of hitting a home run and fear caused by getting lost in the mall. The mood-­changing situations are all easily relatable for preschoolers, and the bold, playful illustrations make each character distinct. Ages four to seven.
