I Feel Happy

Salina Yoon, Running Press Kids, $9.95 (10p) ISBN 978-0-7624-3886-0
In this interactive board book about emotions, readers can place the lemon-shaped cardboard head of a toddler (attached by ribbon) into die-cut spaces atop children's torsos. Each page offers a different scenario that invites reader response. For example, "When Mommy says ‘No,' I feel..." Turning a wheel on the cardboard head makes different mouths appear—a sour face, an angry zigzag, a smile, a wide oval—each paired with a corresponding emotion that appears on the reverse side (sad, mad, happy, surprised). A novel way to introduce emotional responses to various situations, as well as their accompanying facial reactions. Up to age 3. (Apr.)
