"Both the text and the bright, expressive illustrations focus squarely on Theo and his friends, with a developmentally appropriate, low priority on the baby. . . Cocca-Leffler once again demonstrates her understanding of small children and the complexities of their emotions." Kirkus Reviews, August 1, 2013

"Cocca-Leffler's friendly mixed-media illustrations telegraph each child's emotions clearly, and her story underscores the idea that good and bad moods aren't mutually exclusive." Publishers Weekly, June 21, 2013

". . .the situations his classmates describe are all easily relatable for preschoolers, and the bold, playful illustrations make the moods recognizable and the characters distinct." ForeWord Reviews, Fall 2013

From the Inside Flap

On "Mood Monday," students describe their moods after the weekend. But Theo doesn't know what to say because he has a new baby sister and is feeling so many emotions all at once.
