What better feeling than opening a new book from Anthony Browne? A simple look at familiar emotions for the very young.
How do you feel? Sometimes you feel happy, sometimes sad. At times you feel curious, but that may be followed by feeling . . . surprised. And of course you feel bored or lonely once in a while as well. With spare words and simple, graphic illustrations, quintessential chimp renderer Anthony Browne draws on insight and humor to reassure children with an exploration of the varied emotions they experience.
Taking children through happy and sad, confident and shy and beyond, Mr. Browne’s gentle drawings will leave toddlers better equipped to explain themselves in a culture that prizes self-awareness. —The Wall Street Journal
This deceptively simple book introduces an overalls-clad chimp who evokes a spectrum of emotions as he answers the titular question. Though the minimal text is forthright, Browne’s nuanced watercolor and gouache pictures use body language and other cues to amplify each emotion… The chimp models 14 emotions and other feelings (like hungry and full) in total, all of which reappear in miniature on a final spread that asks readers directly how they feel, cementing the book’s usefulness as a tool to both introduce emotions and encourage discussions of readers’ feelings. —Publishers Weekly
