How did the Moodrangles come about? One day, my kindergarten aged daughter was having a tough time.  She drew a picture at the kitchen table--all of the geometric shapes she knows, with little unhappy faces like Sally the Sad Shape.  It was a little heart-breaking from my normally sunny girl, but our conversation went like this:

"What's wrong?"
"I don't know, Mama.  I'm sad."
"Did something happen?"
"No, I'm just sad."
"Okay.  That happens sometimes."

Drawing the picture and having that conversation seemed to help.  She didn't feel like her mood was wrong, or needed to be fixed.  She felt understood.  That's what the Moodrangles are about--the complex and varied range of emotions in children.  Read one with a child you love today!
