Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—The title of this book sets the tone immediately. A girl is sad, so she cries and she feels better. As her tears dry, the rainy sky brightens and a rainbow stretches across it. Laughing when she's happy, yelling when she's angry, sighing gently in a hammock when she's feeling peaceful—all of these expressions of her feelings make her feel better. Throughout the story, a puppy is her constant companion. The deceptively simple illustrations provide a comforting cohesiveness-the same girl and her companionable dog, the same patchwork flowers blooming, the wide sky above changing colors but still the sky—all reflect the message that it is safe and OK to have and express different feelings. Pair this book with Molly Bang's When Sophie Gets Angry-Really Really Angry… (Scholastic, 1999) or Aliki's Feelings (HarperCollins, 1984), or let a child study each page while listening to the accompanying CD with its gentle guitar strums and subtle vocal harmonies.—Susan Moorhead, New Rochelle Public Library, NY

I teach an autism preschool class and my students love this book. They love to listen to the story and the music is very calming. We practice imitating the emotions and everyone's favorite is to yell when you're angry!!

I recommend Story of My Feelings to elementary school homeroom and music teachers, and also to parents and children. It is a terrific read-along book that acknowledges and encourages the expression of feelings which we all have.

The music is simple and down-to-earth (and not at all infantile, patronizing or cloying as many children's song can be) and strong enough to stand alone. The same can be said of the illustrations and lyrics.

My pre-schoolers ask me to play the CD over and over again. It's a favorite at my entire school. Beautifully illustrated, beautiful voices - I highly recommend for parents/teachers/pre-schoolers. My students have their favorite parts and they make faces, which express the feelings. Huge, huge fan!

We bought this book for I think around $7 a few years ago at my daughters preschool book fair. Comes with a CD. It totally calms her down. I am not sure why it's so pricey all of a sudden...
