What a wonderful book ! Such a positive message and happy artwork you can’t help but feel good after reading. A bit long for my daughter but she absolutely loved the illustrations and I was happy to read her such a powerful and positive book. It really transcends age and is a powerful message for all. You are loved.

Today Will Be a Great Day by Slimy Oddity is, as it tells you on the first page, a “guide to happiness. It is essentially a simplified self-help book about forgiving yourself and being grateful for all the good you have in your life.

The art in this book was very cute. I feel it worked very well with the messages the book wished to convey. I also liked the color palette. My favorite quote was “Success does not equal happiness” which is my favorite page. I simply enjoyed the art.

Today will be a great day! was such a lovely, bright book. It contained a lot of wisdom in learning how to be present and content with yourself. this would be a great gift for a friend going through a tough time. I loved the Dalai Lama quote as well as the illustrations! They were so cute.

The picture that says a thousand words is one that sheds a light on the parts of ourselves which are, oftentimes, more difficult to put into words. In this short book filled with wonderful illustrations by the author, the reader works their way through key phrases that seek to nestle themselves in those parts of ourselves that could benefit from a bit of kindness.

The main character of this picture book, one that adopts the soft & warm characteristics a person can love; Slimy finds themselves in situations that every reader might have as well. How do we begin to work past negative thought patterns? What if the mistakes we made, in ignorance or with intent, cannot be looked past? What if we are not enough?

As one looks at this tiny red blob, one that has good intentions & tries its best, the reader acknowledges that these feelings & thoughts do transpire in the minds of those around them as well; it is good to be reminded that the human experience, howsoever singular it may appear, does not render one isolated in their encounters.

This is not a book that I would encourage you to fly through & I very much doubt that any reader would hold a desire to speed forth towards the end. The feelings evoked whereupon Slimy is reminded of their worth, leaves one with sentiments of contentment & sympathy. It was difficult for me to motivate myself to finish this short story because I did not want to leave behind the ethereal colour schemes & patterns, delightfully evoked across the pages of Slimy’s adventures.

This is a book that will do well to have its place in the library of all. Reminders to be kind, patient, gentle & loving towards our own person are priceless & we would do well to remain steadfast in our admonition of them.

This illustrated guidebook is marketed as being for kids but I think all adults could do with it too! How often have we felt bogged down by past regrets, plagued by negative thoughts, or felt stuck in a rut?

Filled with cute blob characters, vibrant artwork and uplifting affirmations, this will put a smile on your face and feels like a warm hug. If books were pastries, this one would be a unicorn cake sprinkled with rainbow Smarties.

Today Will Be a Great Day is a high level tongue in cheek self help guide to happiness. The bright colourful artwork will make you smile, and all the simple messages are direct and straight to the point. It is something to dip into when you feel like a bit of a lift. A little feel good book to brighten your day, and would make a great gift.

I cannot even begin to describe how much I love the art of this book. It is so fun and whimsical and funky--it reminds me of the art I used to draw as a kid onto black sketchbook pages with vibrant gel pens. The affirmations on the pages make it all the better and I found myself pausing after each page to let the message settle in. The world always needs more positivity and this definitely hits the mark. A wonderful book to share with anyone.
