Make-Me-Smile Books for Tough Days

Some days are just tough. Here are two books that get my kids smiling, even when they feel miserable.

Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes is the one thing that drew Johnny and Lily out of their sick kid misery last week – and we’ve pulled it out a few times this week as well with all three kids not feeling well! It’s a great story about accepting whatever life throws at you. If your copy of the book doesn’t come with the CD, be sure to download and listen to the recording!

The Seven Silly Eaters is a huge favorite of Emma’s. She asked me to read it to her class when she was “star of the week”, and her fellow kindergarteners also adored it! The rhyming text flows beautifully, and I adore the depiction of chaotic-yet-happy large family life. The illustrations are every bit as fantastic as the story, and the seven silly eaters learn to be a little bit less silly at the end!

What books are your favorites for “nobody feels good” days?
