"This Morning Maxwelton Got Up on The Wrong Side" is Book 1 in a picture book series about idioms. Maxwelton is in a blue mood until his friends discover laughter is the best medicine.Using bold, Coloring Book-style illustrations and recurring characters, each book has a story based on an idiom. It is a great teaching tool for teachers as well as parents, presenting a method to broach the “grouchy issue” in a fun, non-threatening way children understand. Each story has a primary idiom and a secondary theme. In this case: what should we do when we find ourselves or a friend in a blue "cloud"? Recommended for Grades K-5.
