Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-Many readers will find themselves represented in this multicultural array of close-up images of children displaying their emotions. From grumpy squints, excited grins, and surprised shouts, the photos move to whimsical curiosity, sadness (complete with tears), and sleepy yawns. Most pages clearly capture the precise quality they attempt to portray, particularly the twisted mouth of "confused" and the classic pout of "grumpy." Others are more subtle, such as "thoughtful" and "proud," or "frightened." This collection provides youngsters with the necessary labels to discuss their feelings. Whether shared with a group, parents, or a counselor-individually or in a class-this title provides the tools to facilitate discussion about children and their feelings.-Phyllis M. Simon, Bay Shore School District, NY

Both my 2 and 3 year old love the book.

Great way to teach feelings and emotions to young children, especially for children who struggle with empathy and feelings identification/recognition.

And he wants me to read it over and over, or he sits and turns the pages himself.

I bought this book for my son who is 2 1/2 (and was born with Down syndrome) so he can learn about feelings and begin to express himself; to use words like "happy," "sad," or "angry" (instead of cry or scream like a typical toddler).

This book has become his favorite bedtime book and he will not let me read him any other books! And he wants me to read it over and over, or he sits and turns the pages himself.

The photos in this book are priceless, large, and right on target, and there are just a few words per page, perfect for hard to sit still toddlers. I bought him The Feelings Book by Park, but the pictures are cartoonish and not realistic, and he does not like me to read that one.

I was a preschool teacher for nearly 20 years and this would have been a favorite in the classroom! I highly recommend it if you are in early childhood education or a parent, to help teach about feelings in young children so they can begin to express themselves. I also recommend it to parents of special needs children!

My 1-yr-old son loves this book so much I really can't believe it! He holds it out to be read and loves the expressive faces of the kids in the book. I also think it helps him understand "how he's feeling" even at his young age. The other day he was a little grouchy and I asked him "are you grumpy?" (which is one of the feelings in the book), and his eyes lit right up! Definitely recommend it- just wish it was a board book!

The book is quite short and doesn't actually cover "lots" of feelings. The pictures are okay, but some are actually fuzzy and some are a bit of a stretch for the expression of the feelings they are supposed to be portraying (fear, for instance).

The general gist of the book is good - real pictures showing emotions in children. The feelings shown are: happy, sad, grumpy, excited, shy, proud, angry, loving, surprised, frightened, thoughtful, sleepy, serious, silly, curious, and confused. The beginning and end of the book have dozens of feeling words on them and that teased me - I thought they'd be illustrated in the book. THAT would have made this a great book. I guess I was hoping for less "basic" feelings and slightly more expressive pictures in some cases.

My kids (2 and 4) like to read it sometimes- moreso the 2 year old. It's okay. It works to talk about simple feelings but I was hoping for a bit more.

This book is just what I need for my mental health practice. I was looking for a book to use with children who are too young to read and that had great photos with just a short amount of text for each feeling. This book fits the bill perfectly.

Both my 2 and 3 year old love the book. They are intrigued with it. Some of the pictures don't quite match the feelings (or they are a stretch) but it still makes for good reading/conversation as we talk about and learn about our feelings. I recommend the book.

I use this book in my therapy with traumatized children to help build a feelings vocabulary and provide a nonthreatening forum for them to talk about their own feelings. Each feeling has three different children showing how they express a particular emotion. I particularly like this aspect of the book because kids look different and it demonstrates how one feeling can look slightly different. Young children, who are particularly literal, can relate to at least one of the pictures.

I bought this book to teach my 2 year old about his feelings. He's alittle young but very observant. He loves to read it and he makes associations with the pictures. Some of the feelings are alittle ambiguous, like "thoughtful". The pictures are accurate for the feeling word. I don't know what kind of chemicals are used in printing, but it really stinks. It smelt so bad that my son was the first one to notice it. The smell is still there after 2 months of use.

I use this in my office when I work with children. For smaller children 3-10 we discuss facial expressions and I have them tell me a story about each picture. There are lots of feelings in this book to discuss with kids.
