A simple book about emotions and some of the facial expressions which often go with those emotions.

I like that you can look on the two-page spread near the beginning and, if you look closely, see the foundations already laid for situations which are going to happen later in the book. For one-on-one reading, this could be nice to have little ones try to look for these clues on the second or third reading. For instance, you can see the little girl pouring her her juice which later gets spilled,
This one is a 3.5 for me. I really like how the book's creator uses only minimal text so that readers must rely on the illustrations and their own interpretations of those scenes to determine why the children are feeling certain emotions. Getting in touch with our feelings or even just identifying them is important in self-understanding and self-regulation, and this book just might help youngsters understand that and realize that emotions are a part of life and not something to deny. some of the ...more

Children from a variety of ethnicities are playing in a park. If you check the opening two-page spread you can see that a variety of emotions are in play. The author asks, "how do you feel?"

Possible solutions to negative emotions are also offered in the ending two-page spread. Sometimes young ...more
Age: Toddler-young preschool
Nature: Playground
SEL: Emotions

Children are given an invitation to say how they feel through observing a park with a variety of children experiencing a range of emotions. Each spread features a child's face and a scenario that explains that one emotion. Emotions include happy, sad, silly, mad, sorry, scared, calm, brave, shy, and friendly. Simple and incredibly effective for curious tots.

Each page of this simple books asks a "How do you feel?" question: Do you feel scared? happy? shy? etc., and shows a child in a low-stakes situation where they might experience that emotion (i.e. the scared child is frightened by a spider). The pictures show children of different races, though all with fairly light skin tones and thin, able bodies. Absolutely useful for identifying emotions at home or in the classroom.

Childrens picture book. This book has very detailed illustrations and minimal text. This allows a reader to dive into the pictures for evidence-- why is this person feeling this way? How do you know? A diverse set of children and the simple focus on emotions make this a great tool to use for identifying emotions.

A picture book that goes over various emotions and shows pictures of children with facial expressions that go with those emotions. I like that it represents a variety of children and that it is very simple. It would be a good book for teaching kids about emotions and self-awareness.

Simple words with pictures that repeat on both pages to get the emotion across.

Gonna be great for toddler storytime - big easily-read illustrations and pretty easy to translate into Spanish or ASL. "Let me see what a BRAVE kid looks like!"
