Overview

What can you do when the grouchies take hold? How can you keep a bad mood at bay?

With funny rhymes and a silly chant, The Grouchies shows kids simple and fun ways to turn around grouchy moods. But most of all, kids will understand how their mood and negativity can affect their family and friends, and really get in the way of having a good day.

An extensive Note to Parents further explains the child's experience and provides parents with easy-to-apply tips and tools for helping their kids when a grumpy day comes along.

About the Author
Debbie Wagenbach, better known as "Miss Debbie" to the children who come to hear her storytimes at Burlington, Iowa Public Library, has been promoting library programs for twenty years. Nothing gives her greater pleasure than watching her youngest patrons blossom into thriving adolescents and well adjusted adults. She loves hanging out with her family on Friday nights. Debbie adores her 29 "niblings" (nieces and nephews) and three "great-niblings." She is warmed by their smiles and challenged by their "grouchies."
About the Illustrator
Steve Mack grew up a prairie boy on Canada's Great Plains and has drawn for as long as he can remember. His first lessons in art were taught to him by watching his grandfather do paint-by-numbers at the summer cottage. He has worked for greeting card companies and has illustrated several books. Steve lives peacefully on a lake in Saskatchewan with his wife and two small children. He still loves to illustrate but now thinks fishing holds a close second place.
