Young Reader Reaction: My child studied the pictures on each page.

Adult Reader Reaction: This is not a book I will read to my child again. It is negative and seems to focus on our worst feelings. A sample of the names of the poems are “Greedy”, “Look at me!”, “Upset”, “Shopping Tantrum”, “Hooray for presents”, “It’s mine”, “A Sad Goodbye”, and “Night Fright”. Although it is written from a child’s point of view, the poems use language and thoughts not expressed by children.

Pros: The illustrations are very bright, lively, and are very enjoyable. It is a good size for a book.

Cons: The poems are negative and portray the worst of human emotions.

Borrow or Buy: Borrow it if you are trying to help a toddler or preschooler understand their emotions.
