Beautiful Books: Yesterday I Had The Blues

Looking for the perfect book for your child or grandchild for Christmas?  Every Sunday, we will be featuring a book that received 5 stars at Beautiful Books for Children.  Hopefully these reviews from a fellow mom will help you pick out the book that is just right for you and your child!

This week’s book is:

Yesterday I Had the Blues – by Jeron Ashford Frame

Teaching your children to talk about their feelings can be hard sometimes. For that matter, learning to talk about your own feelings can be hard. “Yesterday I Had the Blues” by Jeron Ashford Frame makes it a little easier. Feelings are put in the context of colors, and descriptive text that helps explain what that means. Each illustration uses the color in question for the main palette of the picture, so that the book reinforces learning colors for your little ones too.
