I am in a good mood when...

I am writing! That was April's theme, with the help of Tameka Fryer Brown's new picture book:  MY COLD PLUM LEMON PIE BLUESY MOOD! From what I gathered, most of my young authors are in a good mood when they are doing things they love. For example:  drawing, playing with siblings, going on trips, helping others and meeting new friends. So, what puts you in a good mood?

Until next time, keep reading and/or writing, writing, writing away! Oh yeah, don't forget the YAP motto..."Anything is possible, as long as you believe!"
