Review quote

'A terrific book, complemented by quirky and humorous illustrations from Ros Asquith. ... This is an essential book for schools as well as being perfect for families.''If it is anywhere as useful, funny and truthful as primary school stalwart the Great Big Book of Families, it will be worth the wait.'`Sensitive and thought-provoking.'Book of the month: 'Mary Hoffman's simple, sensitive text provides an engaging way in to thinking and talking about our feelings, whilst Ros Asquith's wacky, witty illustrations brilliantly convey each of the different emotions discussed.'A book of the month: 'With imaginative and seemingly endless variety, Roz Asquith's illustrations convey how people look while experiencing different emotions while Mary Hoffman's text provides a thoughtful commentary on the feelings that might lie behind the looks. Perfect for children to absorb on their own, this is also a useful as a spur to discussion.''There is so much to like about this important picture book which tackles challenging subjects in such an entertaining way. .. the book also celebrates diversity, showing lots of different children in different situations, and feels very in tune with modern family lifestyles.''Should be in every primary school, every library, every home.'Selected as a top Easter book: 'This well-conceived reminder of how minutely our faces give us away is part portrait gallery, part guided tour. "Interested" is illustrated by little figures asking questions such as: "Where do babies come from?" followed by the urgent enquiry: "Why do we need them?" posed by an indignant toddler. "Silliness" turns out to be a contagion (I adored the leaping granny with the slogan "I feel silly" on her T-shirt). And there is wisdom here too in the Swedish proverb: "A worry often gives a small thing a big shadow."' 'Everything about this book is so thoughtfully done; even the topic headings are each given a different and highly appropriate look. A great book for encouraging children to explore and reflect upon a whole range of feelings. It is a must to have in an infant or nursery class as well as being excellent for family browsing.'? Parents' Lounge feature - 5 positive reviews by parents. Quotes include :'Easy-to-read yet thought-provoking.' I enjoyed the jovial format that kept my five year olds's attention. Some feelings are hard to describe yet this book captures them beautifully.' 'My son adored this book .When he felt angry the day after reading the book, he went off and drew some pictures of steam coming out of his ears.' 'We had a great discussion around what you can do when you feel angry, instead of hurting other people. Helpful as my three year old struggles with her emotions towards her newborn baby sister.''There are lots of things to like about this book not east the illustrations which fill each page.' 'Whether describing positive feelings - excitement, happiness and curiosity - or more problematic ones-loneliness, fear and boredom, the written text and lively illustrations are in perfect harmony.'`Heart-warming and funny. . . It's a wonderful book to share at home or at school. . . Mary Hoffman's sensitive, caring text engages the reader while Ros Asquith's funny illustrations capture the emotions beautifully.''A great book to help children understand and express their emotions ... There are characterful illustrations and wonderful humour, making this a fun but informative book.''Mary Hoffman and Ros Asquith's creative collaboration in words and pictures bring this book to exuberant and colourful life. It is a vibrant and engagingly inventive exploration of feelings, situations, individuals, family, friends and school.'`Delightfully attractive. . . An excellent resource.'
