I haven't read all the books in the Duck & Goose series by Tad Hills. But the few I have read, I have enjoyed immensely. I love this pairing of friends. In this board book adventure, we see ten emotions illustrated: hopeful, selfish, proud, frustrated, scared, patient, sad, happy, angry, loving. This identify-your-emotions concept book is fun. Fun because we've all been there. My favorite illustration? Frustration.

Duck and Goose are back to show us how they're feeling. While this is not one of my favorite books in the series, Tad Hills' addition to the emotions books for kids includes some more involved interpretation of emotion than just the standard happy and sad. At our house, we especially like the pages for scared and selfish.

Have you ever tried to explain the concept of hope? Or frustration? This book combines pictures with single abstract words and requires the reader to fill in the details. In other words, it's not a book to read when you're tired or not on your "A" Game. You also might want to do some brainstorming before reading it out loud the first time. Otherwise you might find yourself nervous and stumbling over how to explain "anger" and what the proper response for a two-year old who's angry is. I will say ...more

Another great entry in the Duck & Goose series. This one is better suited for older toddlers or preschoolers as it identifies different feelings. There is no story for littler ones to follow along with and it would be difficult for them to identify with abstract concepts.

The illustrations are adorably perfect; as Duck, Goose, and friends demonstrate their emotions, so too do the clouds, butterflies, flowers, etc. Hills even includes some non-typical but all too preschooler-ish emotions: frus

Read this for our 2YO, had fun making all the expressions. He seemed to be more in a hurry to shut the book and say "THE END".

I liked Duck and Goose books and this one falls in with all the rest. Darling illustrations, emotive characters. I am usually drawn to feelings books due to my work as a play therapist, this one has soon fun elements. I love the depth that is brought out through these simple illustrations.
Duck and Goose express a wider range of emotions in Duck & Goose, How Are You Feeling? than the typical picture book about feelings. They feel angry, happy, sad, and scared but duck and goose also feel hopeful, selfish, proud, frustrated, patient, and loving.

Another cute Duck & Goose book! This one captures the essence of emotions like frustration, anger, happiness, and patience with its bright, adorable, and humorous illustrations.

A good choice to practice dialogic reading.

I am biased I just love Tad Hills I wish this was not just in board book it would be fun for storytime if bigger. Hills can really capture emotions and this is a great book that shows this to young children. Ages 2+

This is an excellent book about feelings. It opens with "hopeful" as Duck & Goose observe a seedling just beginning to sprout and ends with "loving" as the two embrace. Wonderful in its choice of emotions!

Duck and goose demonstrate everyday situations and the emotion that might go along with it (eg the block tower fell down and goose is grimacing; he is "frustrated"). Good tool to help children understand their emotions.

My son calls this "the yighting [lightening] book" because on one of the pages it shows a dark sky with lightening and he just loves lightening for some reason. I love the Duck & Goose books. They're adorable, simple, and kids love em.

I like that this board book illustrates a number of feelings. I also like that each spread has only one word so that the reader and listener have to explore the images to find out why Duck or Goose are sad or happy etc.
Adorable book, the characters act so similar to the early education kids I've seen lately. Their arguments lead to friendship in a positive way, they find that working together is the best solution.

As a graduate of Skidmore College in New York with a degree in art, Hills describes himself as the ultimate freelancer. He’s
