Description


What do you do when you're feeling blue--especially when your mood takes the form of a drippy, oozy monster called the Blooz? Do you ignore it? Do you ask it lots of questions? Do you give it an ice-pop and hope it goes away? Through trial and error, the child in this storydiscovers that whileit may not be easy, it's not impossible to shake theBlooz. With a read-aloud rhythm and whimsical illustrations, this debut picture bookhelps children talk about emotions--and is perfect for young fans of friendly monsters.

Praise For…


"The process of understanding emotion, especially for young children, can be overwhelming and abstract--the Blooz just might be the perfect concrete visual to help everyone get through those cranky days."—Kirkus

"Debut author Levis has an impressively light touch."—Publishers Weekly

"Blooz may be a blob, and he may be uninvited, but he is actually kinda cute, which makes this a nonthreatening tool for discussing negative emotions with young children."—Booklist
