    One thought on “The Blue Day Book: A Lesson in Cheering Yourself Up”

    1. عنوانش خیلی مناسبه ! برای روزهایی که دمغی چکار کنی که دلت واشه . تصاویر کتاب و خلاقیت نویسنده رو دوست داشتم.

    2. ترکیبی جذاب از عکس حیوانات و جمله هایی مرتبط از احوالات متفاوت انسانی به خصوص وقتی که خیلی گرفته است. ترکیب مناسب عکس ها با حالات انقدر بانمک هستن که برای چند دقیقه حال شما رو عوض کنن.

    3. This book is the most condescending self-help book I've ever had the misfortune of picking up. The worst part is the bit about how life is worth living for love. I'm lucky enough to have a partner who truly is my light on those bad days, but I think this book would have made me feel even worse if I didn't.Also, I don't think that sheep was enjoying herself one bit. It made me feel very uncomfortable.

    4. This is a totally sweet little book, subtitled A Lesson in Cheering Yourself Up. The combination of the quirky text and amazing photo illustrations really made me smile. A good read for a blue day.

    5. Quero este livro para mim !!!É tão querido, motivador e inspiracional! Recomendo para quando estivermos mais em baixo ou só quando quisermos sorrir!

    6. You know, I never would have thought of myself saying this, but the Internet has overtaken my appreciation for this book.The main draw of it is that it's a bunch of pictures of animals with apropos captions. But now, with things like I Can Has Cheezburger, I can find that all over the place--and the thing of it is that the captions aren't that great. The photos are, although I would have preferred they shift from greyscale to full color once the mood of the book shifted, but the captions are jus [...]

    7. I picked up this book in a waiting room and I LOVED it at first. It acknowledges that we all have bad days and different things trigger them. But the pictures of animals are so funny and fitting that you have to smile a little. I was fully prepared to love this book. And I did - except in the middle. Because according to this book, the reason we can't stay blue is (wait for it) ROMANCE! Kisses and snuggles and smooches. Seriously? Not a helpful book for someone who has suffered through bad relat [...]

    8. This book was given to me by my co-workers when my mom died. I was twenty, trying to finish school, and working three jobs. Things don't get much harder than that. I still pick it up every once in awhile and read it(sad or not) to remind me that things always get better and there are people who care about you. If only takes 5 minutes to read through, the quickest pick-me-up ever!

    9. This is a short inspirational picture book with text. Very cute pictures of animals and it does bring a smile to your face. This was given to me by my Mom and it definitely found a place on my bookcase. I would recommend it to everyone who likes animals and needs a little "pick me up".

    10. This is a fun and short book. A friend gave my hubby and I several coffee table books for our wedding and this was one of them. We always get a good laugh from the pictures and words. Our kids have loved it over the years too!

    11. What a sweet little book! The pictures and words work perfectly together to bring gentle encouragement to a weary soul.

    12. Despite the fact that I didn’t much like this book, I’d still love to read The Blue Day Book for Kids: A Lesson in Cheering Yourself Up, which I’m sure uses many different examples than does this book, but I can’t get hold of a copy.Gosh, I hate pop psych, but I’m stuck at home feeling ill (just as well since I’m also expecting a UPS package) and wondered if I’d look more favorably on something like this regarding feeling crummy physically. Nope; neither.Cute animal photos, includi [...]

    13. It was a fun short read. I think it was cute cute and intriguing especially in the first half. I think when we reached the conclusion of it I was a bit disappointed, but I take the book as to be funny more than helpful. It's about having a blue day obviously and all the funny pictures with tag lines, about why we have bad days, were hilarious. BUT then when the reason for getting yourself up again after a bad day was for romance of all things, I was immediately thinking that if I was down becaus [...]

    14. I normally wouldn't list this type of book as I "read" it in less than 10 minutes, if that, in the library. The beginning of the book is fine, but then it seems to me that the author wrote the short text to coincide with the available animal photos (or so I hope). That would at least explain the "all you need is [romantic] love" resolution along with the Kool Aid that follows. While I normally wouldn't invest much thought in this type of party favor book, I feel very strongly that "self help" bo [...]

    15. There is a page in this book, with a lion laying in the grass, that perfectly describes one of the ways serious depression can feel. The saying on the page (I am probably misquoting it a bit but don't have the book with me) says, "And sometimes you get so depressed that you lay on the ground and wait for the earth to swallow you whole." Very powerful.

    16. This is the first of these beautiful little books I picked up to read many years ago started me buying them all, and they are certainly worth it. Beautiful photos, inspirational words, humerous, sad, you'll never get through the book without a smile! So worth reading, for everyone, and such special, worthwhile gifts!

    17. I just brought this book into my English class last Thursday and they loved it! Even the students who swear that they "don't like doing fun things" in class were smiling and laughing half-way through this quick, uplifting book. It simply shows cute/funny pictures of animals with witty sayings to help cheer up even the saddest of people! A definite smile maker! :)

    18. Me pareció un libro tan gracioso y con muy buenas fotografías, me lo leí en cinco minutos con mi hermanita y realmente me gusto.

    19. This is a cute book, with adorable photographs. This book was my MiL's & it now sits very proudly on display in our office (headquarters). Often times just seeing that silly frog on the cover warms my heart up. The copy we have has a beautiful inscription to Cathy in it. & I'm sure this gift did cheer her up atleast once. ♡ I read it in one sitting during a hard day & it did make me lol.

    20. Un insieme di immagini tenerissime accompagnate da frasi, che anche se potrebbero sembrare banali, troppo spesso diamo per scontate. Un libro per ricordarsi ogni tanto di volere un po' più di bene a noi stessi. Un regalo perfetto da fare a una persona che si ritiene speciale.

    21. It's a cute little book that's lighthearted and can put a smile on your face when you feel down in the dumps.

    22. Got this as a present many moons agoReading it now I can fully appreciate it. Super cute animal pics cheers anyone up !

    23. This little book will make you smile, even on your most challenging days. It's short and to the point, just a charming little book.

    24. This book helped me through my blue days as a child and if you are a parent, it will help your child(ren) cheer up. It can be for all ages, too.

    25. Il mio primo libro di fotografia. Alcune immagini sono qualcosa di meraviglioso. Tanti momenti "aaaw" e di dolcezza in un momento della mia vita in cui ho bisogno di dolcezza e serenità.

    26. When I was reading this book I was going through a hard time. The book made me even cry. It is innocent in some way. Strongly suggest to read it.

    27. My mum sent me this book a while back (presumably when I was bitching non-stop about my job), but I’ve only just gotten around to reading it now. It’s pretty cute, and it definitely falls on the silly side of so-called self-help books since it employs the tried-and-true method of pairing amusing animal photos with the text to parlay its advice. I wasn’t sad when I read this book, so I can’t fully judge its validity as a source of cheering up, but I still got a few laughs and that is enou [...]
