This beautiful book is hardcover and approximately 24cm x 27cm. It is written by Amanda McCardie and Illustrated by Salvatore Rubbino.
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 (nor does Fuzzy Bean), and in the course of the book we see them feeling grumpy, embarrassed, shy, nervous, frightened, sad and jealous. Both words and pictures portray 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.
It is beautifully written and illustrated and does a great job at identifying the not only the things that make us feel different emotions but also demonstrated what each emotion may look like which is so important for children to learn and understand.
