No this book is designed to help kids understand one very basic, but important principle. You aren’t alone, and what you are feeling is normal. It helps kids to recognize what they are feeling, and once they can do that you can teach them how to direct those emotions. This is a conversation starter as much as anything else, and for that alone it is worth 5 stars!
The general gist of the book is good - real pictures showing emotions in children. The feelings shown are: happy, sad, grumpy, excited, shy, proud, angry, loving, surprised, frightened, thoughtful, sleepy, serious, silly, curious, and confused. The beginning and end of the book have dozens of feeling words on them and that teased me - I thought they'd be illustrated in the book. THAT would have made this a great book. I guess I was hoping for less "basic" feelings and slightly more expressive pictures in some cases.
My kids (2 and 4) like to read it sometimes- moreso the 2 year old. It's okay. It works to talk about simple feelings but I was hoping for a bit more.
