The Feelings Book Board book – September 21, 2005
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
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.

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.
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.
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.
