K-Gr 2-This book offers an exhaustive, yet age-appropriate treatise on human emotions: what they feel like, what causes them, and how to deal with them. Love, fear, surprise and wonder, anger, happiness, embarrassment, sadness, and more are covered. The direct adult tone, speaking simply to a child, never lapses into baby talk or sounds pedantic and is excellent for read-aloud or guided reading. Children should come away with a better understanding of the wide spectrum of emotions that all people experience, and with the knowledge that they will learn to better control their feelings as they age. In the meantime, they are advised to seek support from an adult when feeling overwhelmed. A list of fun activities and an informative guide for parents and caregivers add even more value to this excellent resource. Attractive watercolor illustrations will keep young readers focused on the message. Best for classroom use. M.O.B.
