Feeling a Little Grouchy?

Posted on

October 15 is National Grouch Day.

We did not make that up!

According to Sesame Street Magazine, the day was created for all grouches to celebrate their way of life.

But don’t celebrate by indulging in your grumpy feelings;  explore your grouchiness through some of these books instead!

Children’s literature is filled with grouchy, grumpy characters to help cheer up or commiserate with.

Grouches come in all shapes and sizes, including grouchy ladybugs, grumpy monkeys and, of course, everyone’s favorite, loveable Sesame Street resident Oscar the Grouch. Surely, these grouchy characters will feel better by the ends of their books. We’re betting you will, too!
