Description
In an ideal world, a primer on feeling good just wouldn't be necessary.But thankfully, the jubilantly goofy Todd Parr knows that we could all use a tipor two from time to time, no matter how old we are.Just as he did in Do's andDon'ts, The OkayBook, and his other titles (16 and counting), Parr keeps it supersimple, with fat lines, bold colors, and a repetitively cheery, often sillymessage. His words get some smiles here and there ("Brushing your hair with alion feels good," "Making sounds like a monkey feels good"), but it's thevibrant, uncluttered, kid-style illustrations and the way that Parr juxtaposesthem with the text that makes this book such fun. "Making a new friend"accompanies a fat, happy pig holding hands with a skunk sporting a thin redsmile; "Watching your grandma and grandpa dance feels good" sits above a coupleof funky, freaky grandparents doing a dance that can only be described as "theKeith Haring."Parr closes the book a little philosophically, with a handwritten "Love, Todd"note: "It feels good to think about all the things that make you feel good.Rubbing my dog's tummy makes me feels good--and him, too. What things make youfeel good?" In a kids' book, it's easy for simple to become simplyinsubstantial, but Parr's enthusiasm carries the day--and if you can bemade to feel good, you will. (Ages 4 to 8) --Paul Hughes
