wakes up and feels rotten, but she's not sure why. She's not sick, and the sun
is shining. Lala is blah-la.

stomps downstairs for breakfast. 

stomp, stomp.

My Review:
Lala wakes up in a  bad mood. She doesn't know why. Her mother is determined to turn her Blah day into a good day. She starts with a happy breakfast then moves on to a happy lunch. When neither work she comes up with a plan to flip an imaginary coin. Tails is a blah day, she tells Lala to flip the coin over in her mind to heads.

This was a very short story and would be perfect for a Blah-la day for any child in the morning when it is looking like a bad day. Teia Kayne has done a wonderful job with this book, it even brought a smile to my face. This is a picture book with vivid and bright illustrations all the way through it. The illustrations are by Goran Vitanovic.

development, running the coverage department for Kinowelt USA and
