Everyone has them. Days that easily flow with everything working out perfectly and then there are the days that no matter how hard you try it seems nothing goes according to plan.

Mama Bear is having of those bad mad sad day’s and she becomes increasingly frustrated. Little Bear witnesses the struggles of Mama Bear’s day and attempts to lend his support. Mama Bear is so blinded by her obstacles she doesn’t notice Little Bear.

Will Little Bear’s attempts to sooth Mama Bear continue to go unnoticed or does Mama Bear realize her obstacles of the day mean nothing with the love of her Little Bear?

Mayra Calvani magically intertwines two generations perspectives of one’s bad mad sad day through caring efforts and that together difficulties can be overcome. A Bad Mad Sad Day for Mama Bear is sure to be a delightful time shared by parents and their young muses. Visit Mayra, www.mayracalvani.com & www.mayrassecretbookcase.com.

The amusing illustrations created by K.C. Snider add to the delight of reading A Bad Mad Sad Day for Mama Bear over and over again. Visit K.C., www.kcsniderart.com.
