Book: Grumpy Bird

Grumpy bird, grumpy bird
Grumpy is your favorite word
Where’s your smile? Where’s your grin?
How did your grumpy day begin?

Did someone bend your favorite twig?
Or make a promise then renege?
Good thing you have some awesome friends
Your persistence theirs transcends

Note: Sometimes, it’s hard to remember that kiddos have moods just like adults, and that sometimes, they can just wake up on the wrong side of the bed.

For Nick, this can be a real problem, since the other side of the bed is a wall!

Grumpy bird wakes up is a “fowl” mood – couldn’t resist – and takes this grey cloud of gloominess with him on his walk. His pals, a ragtag group of fellow forest dwellers, walk with him and eventually cheer him up. Afterwards, everybody eats.

We should all have friends like these.

(Thank you, Laura)
