Not bad - but lots of feelings left out
on 4 November 2011
I bought this for my 2 year old daughter - she could express happy / not happy / sad / tired / scared / like / dislike - and I was looking for an aid to explaining and helping her learn to articulate a wider range of feelings.
It's not bad, clear illustrations, lots of flaps to lift and pull. Shows happy, sad, friendly, wanting to be alone or with friends, angry with your family, jealous, generous... Includes showing how we're all different (different hair, skin, height, wheelchair users or not, clothing etc...) which goes byond feelings. Also emphasises that it's ok to feel angry or to not feel like tidying your room etc.
Fundamentally though it didn't really help to illustrate concepts of worried, anxious, embarrassed, angry, joyful, surprised, tired, grumpy, proud etc...
