    About the Author:

    Jessica Harper is an actor and singer-songwriter whose CDs of children's music have Won many honors, including the Parents' Choice Gold, Oppenheim Platinum, and NAPPA awards. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their two daughters, Nora and Elizabeth.

    From School Library Journal:

    PreSchool-Grade 3–The irrepressible Lizzy returns in this appealing look at the emotions she experiences during a less-than-perfect day. Arriving home from school, she settles down on the couch with her understanding mother and gives her the blow by blow, beginning with how she woke up late, wore mismatched socks, got four answers wrong on her spelling test, and had to say good-bye to her best friend. Lizzy also talks about how she practiced addition using jelly beans, learned a song in science, and played Twister with a friend. As she relates each experience in rhyming prose, the emotion linked to that moment is highlighted in capital letters (e.g., "FRUSTRATED," "EMBARRASSED," "JEALOUS," and "SILLY"). Now, cuddled up with her mother, she feels "FINE!" The softly colored illustrations feature charming details that draw readers in and bring Lizzy's classroom to life. Shown with short pigtails and an expressive, rosy-cheeked face, the child is adorable. The warm and loving relationship between mother and daughter is apparent in both the text and pictures. Children will enjoy sharing this book with their parents at bedtime as they talk over their feelings about what happened during their own busy day.–Linda L.
