Synopsis: "Cow was in a nasty mood. When Duck came along Cow kicked mud in her face.
“Why’d you do that?” asked Duck.
“I felt like it,” said Cow. “And I’m not sorry.”
Little did Cow know that her bad mood would spread to the whole farm. But it does when Cow passes her anger along to Duck who takes it out on Frog who is mean to Bird who upsets Goat who bothers Pig. Until good-hearted Dog turns things around by showing kindness to Pig, turning not sorry into sorry (really sorry). But will that be enough to mend all of the hurt feelings on the farm?"
My Review: This was a really great book to help kids understand grumpy emotions. I love how it shows that one grumpy person (animal) being mean or cruel can start a whole chain of upset and grumpy people. It also shows how just one understanding and kind person can change and stop the chain. It was a simple story for little ones and had such a great message. The illustrations were cute and the use of animals will really capture kids attention.
My Rating: This is such a great book for kids learning about emotions and honest apologies. I loved the illustrations style and the use of animals to convey the story. I give it a rating of Four Paws and Stump Wag.
Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
