Book Review Of “Bad Day” By Ruby Roth @KathleneCarney @NAtlanticBooks @ruby_roth

Popular children’s book author-illustrator Ruby Roth gives us the heartening story of a little boy who’s had a very bad day and just needs some quiet space to work out his feelings in his own way, on his own time

What do you do when you’re feeling overwhelmed? In Bad Day, things are not going well for Hennie. Small things loom large, going from bad to worse as the day-that-never-ends goes on. But with a deep breath and some quiet reflection, Hennie begins to make sense of his feelings and discovers the power of turning inward. Affirming and funny at wonderfully relatable moments, this timely mindfulness resource helps children process their inner lives, guiding them toward self-empowerment and resilience.

Thank you to Carney PR and North Atlantic Books for gifting us a copy in exchange of an honest review.

We all really enjoyed this book, and with Gavin and Liam just starting Kindergarten, I knew bad days were going to be on the horizon. I appreciated that this book teaches kids how to face issues, and things they are internalizing. It teaches them to share their feelings, and talk about things upsetting them. My boys enjoyed the illustrations, and liked the story a lot. As you can see in the photo, sometimes it quickly turns into a BAD DAY when mommy says it’s time to pick up the toy room.
