My Many Colored Days by Dr. Seuss

This month, I found my favorite Dr. Seuss book: My Many Colored Days (Knopf, 1996). My Many Colored Days was published posthumously and was not illustrated by Dr. Seuss (paintings by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher). But probably for that reason, I love the brightly painted pages. The abstract paintings nicely capture animals in various moods and colors, very nicely demonstrating how we all might feel like different animals at different times and days.

I might add that toddlers sometimes feel like a brown bear, a red horse, and an orange circus seal on the same day, maybe all within the same hour! What a great book for illustrating emotions.

My Many Colored Days is available as a board book and as a hardback book.
