About the Author

Jamie Lee Curtis has had many firsts: her first (and only) marriage to Christopher Guest, her first time holding her children, Annie and Tom, her first time pretending to be a customer in an episode of Quincy, and her first time she wrote words that became her first book. She lives in Los Angeles, the first city she ever lived in, and is always first in line, first to arrive, first to leave, and first to sleep.


Laura Cornell lives in New York City with her daughter, Lily (first and only), but they spend much time in California, Laura's first state in her first home. She was asked to illustrate Jamie's first book, and that became ten. Lucky is the first word that comes to mind.

I love this book!!! My two and 1/2 year old has every word memorized! It is definately her favorite book, and she can tell the difference in her feelings. I highly recommend it even for two year olds.

I knew when I bought this book that it would make my son laugh. He exhibits every mood that is in this book and when we read it together I comment to him about his own emotions. This is a great book and it actually gets a child to behave a bit better when they hear how 'silly' it is to get mad or sad about something 'silly.'

My family had been under quite a bit of stress recently. My husband's job promotion required us to relocate over 300 miles away from extended family; therefore this move was bittersweet. And, shortly after we were adjusting to our new home, our dog was run over by a car and killed instantly. These two major changes in the lives of two small children, 2 and 4 year-old, stirred up a variety of feelings and moods that we needed to talk about. My husband and I are so greatful that this wonderful book, 'TODAY I FEEL SILLY...' was recommended to read with our children in our trusted, handy, little 'parenting survival guide' appropriately called THE POCKET PARENT. Ms. Curtis explains that everyone has feelings that can change each day, from silly to angry to sad to glad. My kids love the fun verse and the lively illustrations that clearly demonstrate it's OK to have all kinds of feeings. The kids especially enjoy taking turns changing the facial expressions of the charcters on the mood-wheel to match how they are feeling at the moment. We identify the good and bad feelings with the correct word as they come up. I was amazed when my 2-year-old made a very unhappy face and blurted out, 'I sad Mommy, miss Grandma.' This book helps us acknowledge and talk further about our feelings when necessary. We highly recommend this book as well as 'The Pocket Parent' to help address your concerns relating to young children in just the right way.

I loved this book. After having bought it for my four year old niece, I bought a copy for myself. I animatedly read it a couple of times a month. I even read it to my aunt who is 50 and she loved it. Great book for all ages.

My 3 year old daughter loves this book. We read it all the time because it helps her to express her emotions and feelings. My daughter is at the age where she doesn't know how to talk about her moods and this book allows her to say 'Hey, I felt like that today!' She also loves the pictures and at the end of the book dialing the face is really neat for her. Wonderful book!

My 3 1/2 year old daughter checked out this book from our local library last month. She keeps asking, 'Mommy, will you read me the 'Silly' book again?' Recently while visiting with Santa at the mall, he asked, 'What would you like Santa to bring you for Christmas?' Her reply was the 'Silly' book. She will definitely find this book under the Christmas tree. This was a book that I enjoyed reading to my daughter as much as she enjoyed hearing it.

This book is about a little girl and all of her emotions that she encounters each day. There are thirteen different emotions ranging from happy,sad,sill, lonely and more. This book is adorable and I think all children would love it! It could bring a classroom discussion about how it is ok to have different emotions everyday, and to explain to children that we all feel different. This book also could bring a discussion about rhyming songs and words. At the end of the book there is a picture wheel and you get to turn it and the face makes a different expression for your mood. It would be fun to integrate this into an art project and each child could make their own "expression face". This book was illustrated by Laura Cornell.

A zany refreshingly silly picture book written in rhyme that should be delight to read aloud to preschool through early elementary. But to get the full benefit of the very detailed illustrations a close-up examination is needed. The fifth page opens to be held vertically instead of horizonally and in this scene of a playgroud is a sign that explains the nature of the redheaded narrator. The sign reads: "Hyperactive straight-away." One day she feels silly, the next day she feels grumpy and mean, She is angry, she's joyful, she's confused, she's quiet. Then she is excited and cranky, lonely, then happy, then sad. The bookconcludes with the statement that moods are something that happend each day but whatever the feeling are, they are okay.

This book covers all sorts of moods and emotions that everyone experiences day to day. It gives examples of why there are these emotions and why someone would feel that way. In the back you can make your own emotions by moving the eyes and the mouth to fit what you are feeling. Great for explaining why you feel the way you do.

This is our second encounter with Jamie Lee Curtis as an author and like the first (Where do Balloons Go?) they loved it! In this book we join a little girl as she takes a whirlwind tour of 13 different emotions, each told in that same sing-song rhyme that appears to be a staple of Curtis' writing. The rhymes are brought to life with the same riot of color illustrations that really seem to appeal to young readers! The kids especially liked how the colors used changed with the moods while maintaining their vivid shades (there is nothing gloomy or lackluster about this book). At the very end, there is a large picture of the girl in the story with a set of wheels that the kids can turn to see a selection of moods which was quite humorous and led to much discussion between the kids about how they were feeling right then and what types of things that have happened before made them feel angry or silly...or whatever...so it was a light, fun read, but also a good way to get more in depth discussion of moods, how they just happen sometimes and what types of activities/events make you feel certain ways...you know...like what makes you angry or sad...what makes you happy or what do you do when you just feeling silly or blue? I think Today I Feel Silly is best as a read aloud book...and the larger the group of kids you're reading to the more interesting the conversation after can get! I'd recommend this in a heart beat! We loved it!

I bought this book with 5 others for my 3 year old book. From the moment my daughter saw the cover she fell in love with it. We have read it every night since we received it a couple of weeks ago. I heard Jamie Lee Curtis' kids books were great and I wanted to read for myself. We are definately going to be adding more of her books to my daughters collection.
