Theo’s Mood: A Book of Feelings

Maryann Cocca-Leffler. Albert Whitman, $15.99 (24p) ISBN 978-0-8075-7778-3
It’s Mood Monday at Theo’s school, but when his teacher asks him how he’s feeling, especially now that he has a new baby sister, he isn’t sure. Six of his classmates offer possibilities: “Maybe you feel happy like me,” says a boy named Eric (“I got a new bike!” he says on the facing page, revealing the reason for his joy). Additional classmates are jealous, afraid, sad, mad, and proud, and Theo eventually realizes that his new sibling inspires all of these emotions in him. Cocca-Leffler’s friendly mixed-media illustrations telegraph each child’s emotions clearly, and her story underscores the idea that good and bad moods aren’t mutually exclusive. Ages 4–7. (Sept.)
