Feelin' grumpy?

Big Rabbit's Bad Mood is great for both toddlers and preschoolers. Small kids have off days and might not always understand their own feelings. Big Rabbit sure doesn't understand the bad mood following him around everywhere, wiping his boogers on the carpet and eating his radio. That bad mood is all Big Rabbit can think about until a shining brilliant idea comes to him to lure the bad mood out of his house. Yes! That just might do the trick.

Note: Other reviews pointed out that essentially the bad mood dissipates when (SPOILER ALERT!) Big Rabbit's mom and friends show up for a surprise birthday party. And, yeah, that does happen, but what is also in the book is the idea that you have to be responsible for your own person. When unable to reach his friends to help take his mind off his bad mood, Big Rabbit comes up with his own plan to get the bad mood to leave him alone.
