Great book!

My Nieces loved this book! The writing was great and illustrations were beautiful.

There's better feelings books out there...

This is one of my least favorite books I've bought for my daughter. The "scared" page refers to the dark and thunderstorms as a source of fear and needing a parent to hold them through it. My kid is not afraid of the dark, or thunderstorms and I would rather not put the idea of such in her head.

Great range of emotions!

I love this book! It has a wide variety of emotions for my sons to identify with, beyond happy, sad and mad. Frustrated? You bet! Toddlers can really identify with this but it is rarely in books. The pictures really showed the feelings! This book was perfect for helping kids know how they feel and put a name to it. It also showed silly and angry as equal but different emotions with no negative conotations to being bored or mad .

Great for helping little ones name their feelings

My son was a late talker and this book really helped him identify the feelings he was having and see that they were OK. Great pictures and fun to read WITH FEELING!

Great intro to feelings!

My two year old loves this book. In the first day we read it five times and he still asks for it every day. When I say that I am frustrated he will say "Just like in my book Mommy?" The wording is easy enough for his age, yet informative enough for years to come. The pages are beautifully illustrated and hold his attention. I would recommend this book for anyone trying to teach fellings to young people.

Adorable and made my family laugh

"Feelings come and feelings go. I never know what they'll be. Silly or angry, happy or sad- They're all a part of me!" Have you ever had a day where you have been experiencing such a wide array of stressful emotions, you just need a good laugh? Well this book turned out to be quite healing when my husband found it and decided to read it to me. I was more than amused. He took great "glee" in saying I was definitely the girl with the ponytail on the top of her head. We also had a good laugh over: "Angry is how I feel right now, I shout with a mighty roar. I mostly want to frown and growl and stomp upon the floor." Jana Cain has beautifully illustrated the book in pastel shades. Each page reflects the emotions in the color you would imagine an emotion to be. The "angry page" is red while the "happy page" bursts with yellow from the sun shining down on a girl on a swing. The emotions presented in words and pictures include: silly, scared, disappointed, happy, sad, angry, thankful, frustrated, shy, bored, excited, jealous, and proud. This book was also created to encourage children to recognize their emotions. In the back of the book there is "a note to parents" showing how this book can be used to help children understand what circumstances make them feel happy, sad, jealous, and so on. You can then discuss the emotion and decide which action is best when you feel that emotion. "It is not okay to hit people or throw things, but it is okay to stomp your feet." Jana Cain's family posed for the illustrations and enjoy swimming, biking, hanging out with friends and now understand all their emotions. Some day they are looking forward to traveling the world and experiencing their emotions in new places. ~The Rebecca Review


This is my three year old's favorite book, and it has done a lot of good for him! He first took to it because of the fun artwork, and catchy rhymes. Since we have started reading about it, he's been talking about his feelings all the time, from saying things like "I'm so happy right now" to "Do you feel frustrated, mommy?", which is really suprising coming from him! We've been able to talk to him about other things now that he understands feelings better and what they mean. So I highly recommend this book to everyone, and am looking forward to her writing another one.
