Description

A warm, gentle book for young children who sometimes struggle to express what they're feeling.A Book of Feelings stars a brother and sister, Sam and Kate, and their dog, Fuzzy Bean. Sam and Kate know what makes them happy: cuddling Mum, reading a story with Dad, swimming, running and dancing ... lots of things! But they don't feel happy all the time, and in the course of the book we see them feeling grumpy, embarrassed, shy, nervous, frightened, sad and jealous. This book shows the children in many different situations at home and at school, and show how they change over time, how emotions can escalate and how people can help each other. Amanda McCardie's supremely subtle and sensitive text is as alive to the nuances of children's behaviour as Salvatore Rubbino's amazing pictures.show more

Review quote

Lovely sensitive text and rich illustrations alive with movement. * Green Parent * It can be very hard to talk about how we feel, so a picture book that sets out to explain that everyone experiences a whole range of feelings and emotions is a great addition to any child's bookshelf. [...] This is a great book for sharing and talking about with children of all ages. * Carousel * This is a great book for sharing and talking about with children of all ages. * Carousel *show more
