Some days, it's easy to feel friendly or funny or silly. But other days, it's easier to feel mad or mean or snappy-in other words, to be a crab.
In this accessible introduction to moods and feelings, children will meet an underwater world full of friendly creatures, including a little crab whose changing moods show that it's okay to have days when you're feeling a little bit under the weather. Things will turn around soon enough!
A parent uses sea-creature metaphors to coax a child out of a "crabby" mood: "Some days you can be a silly jellyfish that does a wiggle-jiggle dance," writes Whitehead. "And some days you can be a crab!" The parent tries a few tactics to shift the child's mood ("I'm a puffer fish that will hold its breath and make silly faces at you") but also acknowledges that it's okay to "go ahead and be a stinky anchovy for a while." Swirling illustrations that mix paint, tissue paper, and digital elements create a prevailing sunny mood one that might persuade a few "mopey manatees" to change their tune. Ages 4 7.
