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.
