Booklist (February 15, 2015 (Online))
Preschool-Kindergarten. This alphabet of emotions runs through an array of feelings, starting with “A is for afraid” and ending with “Z is for zany.” Each condition is introduced through a simple declarative sentence printed in bold, oversize font (“L is for lonely”), followed by a simple descriptive sentence (“I am on my own and I’m feeling left out”). Cartoon illustrations featuring a diverse and expressive cast of characters do an effective job of reinforcing the abstract concepts, providing visual reinforcement (for lonely, a young boy sits by himself on a bench watching kids nearby playing a game). The emotions and pictured scenarios are age-appropriate and should resonate with young readers (an embarrassing milk spill; a worrisome first-time babysitter). Additional content aimed at adults offers suggestions on how to generate discussion; build vocabulary and self-awareness; follow up with games, songs, and role-playing; and build empathy. This will engage young audiences and serve as an apt introduction to other titles that explore individual feelings in the Our Emotions and Behavior series.
