Sometimes life just doesn't seem fair. Have you ever had a day when . . .

your favorite pants shrunk in the wash?

your best friend was being a beast?

you were too short to go on the best ride?

no one would listen to you?

Well, take heart--you're not alone. Everyone has one of those days sometimes. And even if you bowled gutter balls or your nice sweater made you itchy, at least there's a bright side--a brand-new day is waiting for you tomorrow, and you can laugh at those days when they're over.

A charming exploration of the joys of sharing.-- School Library Journal on You Are to Me

..The waggish pictures illustrate [the text] with verve and humor.-- Kirkus Reviews on 31 Uses for a Mom
