Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

"Sometimes I feel silly ... Sometimes I feel cranky ... Sometimes I feel like kissing a sea lion." There are so many different ways to feel, and author-illustrator Todd Parr believes people should not keep their feelings to themselves: "Share them with someone you love."

Big round heads, stick-figure bodies, bold outlines, and vibrant colors mark the work of the creator of such lovably goofy books as The Okay Book and Zoo Do's and Don'ts. Straightforward feelings (lonely, scared, brave) are interspersed with less conventional, but equally valid feelings ("Sometimes I feel like standing on my head"), encouraging children to identify and label their constantly shifting emotions. Grownups can validate young readers as they read and chuckle together and discuss all the feelings they might experience in a given day. Parr's childlike illustrations are tremendously appealing to one and all. (Ages 3 to 6) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-Both of these small, simple, and sometimes very silly books feature brightly colored single-page cartoons of stick-figure-styled animals, people, and faces. In the first title, Parr shows that feelings are always changing. "Sometimes I feel like standing on my head" and "Sometimes I feel like celebrating my birthday even though it's not today" mix with "Sometimes I feel lonely" and "Sometimes I feel cranky." On the last page, the author encourages readers to share their feelings with "-someone you love." Overall, this is a nice addition to titles about the topic. In Underwear, Parr continues his series of books about "Do's and Don'ts." One double-page spread couples "Do Wash your underwear" with "Don't Use too much soap." Another advises, "Do Go shopping for underwear with a hippo" but "Don't Let her try it on," accompanied by an illustration of a hippo in ripped panties, size XL. This zany title is sure to send listeners into peals of laughter during storytime.

He uses bright colors and bold, black outlines to illustrate his books which contain simple messages about acceptance, difference, and empowerment.

I read this book to my class at least four times a week.
Preschoolteacher
We are able to talk more in depth about it...I ask him if he can think of something that makes him feel silly, happy, sad, etc.
Amanda
These books are good for children and adults of all ages.

Format: Board book
The illustrations in this book are fun, but if you are looking for a book to teach your kid about emotions, this is not the book for you. There are a few emotions included (scared, brave, cranky, lonely, and silly), but most of the "feelings" are more about wanting to do certain activities. These include things like "Sometimes I feel like eating pizza for breakfast." and "Sometimes I feel like kissing a sea lion." It's cute, but it's not what I expected from a book called "The Feelings Book."

If you are looking for a book to teach your baby/toddler about emotions, I highly recommend the Playschool book "Baby Faces" (sorry it is not currently available on Amazon, so I can't include a link, but the ISBN is 0525455450, if you search for that, it will come up, and there may be used copies available). For toddlers and young children I recommend "Big Feelings" (available through the Talaris Institute Parenting Counts, not Amazon) as well as the series by Marcia Leonard including "I Feel Sad," "I Feel Scared," "I Feel Angry," and "I Feel Happy" (again, can't post a link, but if you search for the author + title, they come up). The Talaris Institute (Parenting Counts) also has a board book of baby emotions, but I haven't seen it and can't recommend it.

Edited to add that I did end up purchasing the Baby Feelings book from Parenting Counts and it is excellent.

This book was a big hit with my first graders. It showed them that there were ways to let people know what they were feeling, sometimes without saying anything. They now also have an idea of why they are feeling the way they do about things. I loved this book as much as the kids did.

Format: Board book
I was hoping for a book that covered normal feelings like happy, sad, proud, etc. Instead this book is about off beat feelings like "I feel like camping with my dog." I am sure this is an appealing story for little children with all of the bright colors and pictures. However, if you are looking for legitamate feelings this is not the book.

I have never written a review before but I had to provide feedback so others know what to expect and aren't disappointed as I was. As a psychologist, I was excited to purchase this and begin teaching my toddlers about emotions. This book is colorful and attractive; for this the author gets 2 stars. I was expecting a book full of emotions with an accompanying picture. However, this book illustrates a few emotions but then confuses thoughts with feelings. If I am teaching my kids about feelings, I should not see statements that begin with "I feel like..." (e.g., I feel like playing in the sand")---that is a thought and not an emotion. There are plenty of emotions to pick from to illustrate in such a book so I don't understand why the author chose to include so many thoughts rather than emotions. Very disappointing...and aggravating. I'll have to find another book to teach my children about emotions.

I bought this book for my son recognizing the art from a cute birthday card a friend of ours had given to him. This and the other Todd Parr books I've read are very gentle and amusing and reassuring, though this one is my favorite (so far).

We bought this a few years ago for my son, who is now 5yrs old. He always loved it. I am sure the bold bright colors and whimsical illustrations have everything to do with that, but the messages the book sends are outstanding, in my opinion. Now, we still occasionally read this book with our son, but our 3 yr old daughter also loves this book and can even recite parts of it!

My son really enjoys when I read this book to him. He has learned to act out the feelings like "scared", "happy", "crying" and "cranky"... we both laugh together everytime we go through this exercise when we read the book. It has also helped me control his toddler tantrum - when he starts being cranky, I simply remind him of the book and tell him to act out the other "feelings" - and he totally forgets why he was cranky! Thanks, Todd Parr! I would definitely recommend this book to parents of other toddlers.

This book is developmentally appropriate for any age group. I highly recommend it for children in preschool or kindergarten. Social-emotional development is very important for the young child. I read this book to my class at least four times a week. Repetition reinforces the key concepts of the book. The best part is that the children request this book every time.
