Not Great for Teaching Feelings
on July 4, 2012
Our family is usually a fan of Sandra Boynton, but feelings are a tough topic. The book includes Boynton's usual fun and silly approach and good facial expressions on the animals. What's missing is any representation of what might be making the animal sad, or mad, etc, which makes discussion a little abstract for young kids. I've seen other books at the same reading level that do a better jobs of this - so if you are looking to teach or start a conversation with your kids about feelings skip this one and look elsewhere. If you just like Boynton, this is still cute.
