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.

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.

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.

We purchased this book for our grandson after he was having some typical two years moments. Just to get the conversation going with a dash or awareness. The book arrived in a timely manner and it good condition. The most surprising part was when my son remembered having the book as a little boy -honestly, I didn't remember this particular book until then; so I double checked with my daughter, who has an amazing memory and sure enough my ds, dear son, was right. This leads me to my conclusion, this book while seemingly, non spectacular, makes an lasting impression. My grandson did enjoy the book when I read it to him, and my son said it is a bedtime favorite.
From an educational and developmental learning perspective, this book meets developmental benchmarks typical for both Social and Emotional skills and Literacy skills.

Note: I use the Experience Early Learning Developmental Framework ([...]) for many of my reviews, especially those products geared towards children under age 5. I find this particular developmental continuum to be aligned with NAEYC, accurate, detailed, and comprehensive. - not for any financial profit. Additionally, "The Feelings Book" encourages skill developmental in Common Core's ELA Standards in much the same way as all books can. The language used in book will certainly help children who are struggling to identify their feeling and provides good practice for young children.

We have several books by Todd Parr and this is one of my son's favorites. The illustrations are bright and colorful and the text is engaging for my son.

To the reviewers who fault this book for not being all about emotions, that review is slightly unfair. There are emotions in this book--scared, lonely, etc, but there are also some silly "feelings" like standing on my head. There are lots that are somewhere in between are probably in terms that kids may grasp by not using the exact emotion. For example, sometimes I feel like reading a book under my covers. My 3 year old is much more likely to understand that as a feeling than "sometimes I feel like being by myself/needing personal space."

This is not a book that simply goes through a list of emotions. There are other that do that. This is a book that talks about feelings and emotions while also engaging kids in the other impulses (sometimes silly) that guide toddlers' lives. I would strongly reccommend that you take advantage of the "see inside" feature where amazon lets you preview pages before you buy any book assuming that it covers specific topics.
