Do you feel happy? Sad? Silly? Angry? This books helps children and parents talk about feelings! A Feelings Faces Poster is included!
The playground is the perfect place to witness a wide range of emotions. A girl is happy when playing with a puppy. Another girl is angry when a boy knocks over her drink. And the boy is sorry.
Readers learn to identify feelings in themselves and in others in this simple, but clever book by a prominent preschool nonfiction author-illustrator. Beautiful, detailed spreads show panoramic views, while close-ups focus on specific incidents, body language, and facial expressions. The art provides many opportunities for meaningful conversation and solid learning.
Backing the book jacket is a Feelings Faces poster.
“By highlighting each emotion separately and giving appropriate focus to the face of the child feeling the emotion, with the corresponding circumstantial scene on the opposite page, Rockwell gives space for readers to talk about why the characters are feeling that way. Facial clues such as blushed cheeks, tears, and furrowed brows help readers learn to infer emotions from expressions. Important work for children learning empathy and to validate their own feelings.” —Kirkus Reviews
“The short text and lucid acrylic paintings in this open-ended picture book invite exploration of the visual narratives along with discussion of emotions. Thoughtfully designed, deceptively simple, and clearly useful.”—Booklist
