How Do You Feel? ISBN: 9781406330175
Published by Walker, 2011
The little monkey on the very first page of this lovely picture book asks us 'How do you feel?' and then proceeds to tell us all about his feelings. The simple pictures reflect the feelings in ways that help our understanding. When the little monkey is bored, the picture is grey, when he is lonely, the picture of him is very tiny. When he is happy, the background turns bright yellow. The text also reflects the mood - sometimes bold, sometimes small, sometimes in italics. Lots of feelings are covered, some of them physical (hungry, full, sleepy, etc.) and some of them emotional (angry, guilty, sad, etc.). This little monkey will help children understand about feelings and why they are important and are experienced by everyone. A very special book.
