Praise

“This is a uniquely beautiful and original book. The extraordinary illustrations, done mostly in shades of gray with just occasional color, are more than perfect in picturing the concepts of the book . . .The words are so lovingly rendered with the illustrations.”
–Katrina Yurenka, Youth Services Book Review, Starred Review

What Feelings Do When No One’s Looking offers pandemic-weary children the opportunity to make sense of the complicated emotions they may be feeling and concrete examples of the feelings they wish to foster, such as joy, kindness, courage, calm, and compassion.”
–Mary Ann Cappiello and Erika Thulin Dawes, Text Sets and Trade Books

“A unique picture book of surprises . . . What Feelings Do When No One’s Looking will prove to be an enduringly popular, fun, and unique addition to family, daycare center, preschool, elementary school, and community library picture book collections.”
–Midwest Book Review

“I am captivated by this book. It is beautifully executed, with thoughtful words and exquisite illustrations. The charming creatures are engaging and invite reflection and conversation. I think this is a book that belongs in every school library, public library, and therapist collection in addition to being in family homes. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is so touching that I find myself returning to it repeatedly.  I will definitely be adding it to my list of gift books.”
–Ellen Cutter, Bookseller at Magic Tree Children’s Books

“What Feelings Do When No One’s Looking provides an intimate look at what our emotions are doing when we aren’t experiencing them . . . The art stands out for me . . . its soothing grays calm the psyche and invite the observer to be at peace with each emotion, regardless of positive or negative connotation. Some children’s picture books leave a discernible feeling of serenity; this was one of those.”
–Glass of Wine, Glass of Milk

“The sparely detailed gray or pale-hued drawings and even sparer text create soothing visual and verbal rhythms as pages turn . . . A nuanced, ruminative alternative to the general run of more limited, toddler-aimed emotional palettes.”
Kirkus Reviews

“What Feelings Do When No One’s Looking is a lovely book that explores all kinds of feelings—those that are pleasant to feel and those that aren’t so much, those that are clear as day and others that are more nuanced.  Each feeling is represented as a fun little creature, and the thoughtful sentiments throughout leave room for conversation with young readers.  A wonderful way to encourage open dialogue about feelings.”
–Mary Wahlmeier Bracciano, Raven Book Store
