I really liked this book. I do not know if a lot of people would like it because it is very different. It is a story of a little boy who does certain things and what his reaction to the situations are. To me it is very creative and I think the little boy is too cute!

I liked the idea of this book because it shows the pictures of the boys emotions. It is plain and black and white but I think this book could really be used in special education.

This book is all about emotions. For a kid with Autism

This story is about a little boy and the emotions he goes through in a week. He gets disappointed when it rains and he can not ride his new bike to his friend's house.

I really loved this cute little book. It does a great job of explaining various feelings. It is supposed to be the little boy on the cover telling about various experiences he had one week and the feelings he had with a corresponding picture. Very fun and my daughter loved it. Excitement, Embarrassed, Proud, Scared, Disappointed, are some of the feelings shown.

This book is a simple description of emotions, and it has different pictures of a young boy making the expressions. Good story when introducing emotions to children.

This is definitely a book for younger readers but I think I can use it to illustrate the writing trait of voice.
