My Many Colored Days

Dr. Seuss's youngest concept book was written in 1973 and discovered -- and completed -- by husband and wife team Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher almost a quarter of a century later! Using a spectrum of vibrant colors and a menagerie of animals, this unique book does for the range of human moods and emotions what Oh, the Places You'll Go! does for the human life cycle. Here is a wonderful way for parents to talk with children about their feelings.

This book is available in both hardcover and board book editions for the littlest readers!

"Theodor Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss...wrote but did not illustrate this rhyme, which assigns colors to moods.... Spread by spread, the character metamorphoses into animals of varying hues, from an energetic red horse to a secretive green fish to a droopy violet brontosaur ("On Purple Days/ I'm sad./ I groan./ I drag my tail./ I walk alone"). Husband and wife Johnson and Fancher (Cat, You Better Come Home) do not mime the author's pen-and-ink creations but work in pasty, expressionistic brushstrokes and blocky typefaces that change with the narrative tone." -- Publishers Weekly
