Addie's birthday present

So, I was onlilne one day and found a contest to do a scrapbook layout based on a Dr. Suess book. The point was basically to make a single colored page. I then got it in my head to make Addie a book for her birthday based on this story but put in pictures of her for the illustrations. So, here is the book I have come up with. I will type the story in too since I saved it at a lower quality for quicker uploading. Let me know what you think. Any constructive criticism would be great.
My Many Colored Days
by Dr. Seuss
Illustrated by Mommy and Laura
Some days are Yellow. Some days are Blue.
On different days I'm different too.
You'd be surprised how many ways
I change on differentColored Days.
On Bright Red Days how good it feels to be a horse and kick my heels!

On other days I'm other things.
On Bright Blue Days I flap my wings.

Some days, of course,
feel sort of Brown.
Then I feel slow
and low, low down.
Then comes a Yellow Day.
And, WHEEEEEEEEEEEEE I am a busy, buzzy bee.

Gray Day...
Everything is gray.
I watch. But nothing moves today.
Then all of a sudden I'm a circus seal!
On my Orange Days that's how I feel.Green days.
Deep deep in the sea.
Cool and quiet fish. That's me.On Purple Days
I'm sad. I groan.
I drag my tail. I walk alone.
But when my days are Happy Pink. It's great to jump and just not think.Then come my Black Days.
Mad. And loud.I howl. I growl at every cloud.Then comes a Mixed-Up Day.
And WHAM!I don't know who or what I am!

But it all turns out all right, you see. And I got back to being.....

Me!!
