Alternations--mostly from down to up (quarrel/reconciliation, lost/found) but also, oddly, from yesterday or tomorrow to ""right now."" The present moment, pictured in color, is contrasted with both past miseries and coming felicities, pictured in black-and-white. The very pattern is confusing. First: ""Yesterday a daisy died""; ""But right now a whole field is blooming."" Then: ""Tomorrow I'm going to the zoo"", ""But right now the rain is falling."" Several of the examples are hackneyed and babyish: ""Yesterday I lost my shoe in the pond"" (weeping); my-mother-wouldn't-let-me-help-with-the-pie, but I-am-making-mud-cake. And one might really wonder at the wisdom of exalting ""right now"" as an outlook on life, even for quite small children. The colored pictures are, however, very prettily colored.
