We all have our bad days, adults and children alike but we don't have to let them weigh us down. Grumpy Pants visually removes all that weight and teaches a little about self-care with simple text and sweet illustrations.

I love Grumpy Pants. This is a great book to read with a group during storytime, or one-on-one with your little one at home. Everybody feels grumpy sometimes. Penguin works his way through his grumpy feelings and resolves to have a better day tomorrow. Pairs well with the songs, "Shake Your Sillies Out" and "Come Under My Umbrella".

This book was the perfect length for my almost 2 year old and his older siblings! (4 and 7). They all loved it! Hoping to see more from Claire Messer!!

Grumpy Pants is a delightfully simple story in both words and pictures! I loved how it captured the feelings of Penguin's grumpy mood and how he self-soothed his way into feeling good about tomorrow.

For any parent who has experienced a child with "grumpy pants", this read aloud is very relatable. The illustrations are simple, yet expressive, and the text is short and sweet. Share it in storytimes about Manners, Feelings, Bathtime or Penguins.
