Sergio Sees the Good: The Story of a Not So Bad Day
“Life’s not so bad after all.” A boy so focused on one big bad thing that he doesn’t even notice the little good things, even though all the little good things combined are greater than the one big bad event. The plot was believable. The story made sense to me. I like how they used marbles and a scale to show the contrast between the weight of the good and the bad things that happened during the day. The story was interesting, and the language was clear to understand. The moral of the story is to think about the positive and not dwell on the negative thoughts. I like the pictures because they help me to understand the story. I think this book is good for elementary kids. I recommend this book since it is something that could happen in real life. If you have a bad day at school, this is an uplifting book to read with your parents.
“We don’t have to pretend that bad things don’t happen, but remember that positive things help to keep the scales a little more balanced.”
