About this item
On some days, there's just not a good word for the way you are feeling. If your socks are sagging and your pants are wrinkled, what do you call it? Maybe you're feeling like a turtle. Maybe you're feeling halfway wild. Writer Laura Freudig has found a delightful new way to describe those feelings in this poetic and playful picture book that connects children, not just to feelings and emotions, but also to animals and the quirks and patterns of the natural world. We follow one family through the course of a day as they march through meadows like ants, dive to the depths like seals, play hide and seek like fireflies, and chatter like raccoons, until, at last, "… when the house is still and all we can hear are the soft, slow breaths of the ones we love, we're a family of bears." Illustrator Kevin Barry blends the real with the fantastic in works of art that will make young readers lean in for a closer look, marvel, and dream.
