The Lovereading4Kids comment
As a gentle, perceptive and useful examination of feelings, this cannot be bettered. Through descriptions of the different feelings felt by two children, the book shows why, even though we are happy and loved, we might still feel cross, nervous or hurt. It provides reassurance that feelings of anger and jealousy are common to everyone, and that there are ways to manage them. Embarrassment, shyness and sadness are all covered and, as the author intended, it offers all children a way to think about the feelings they, and other people, have. Salvatore Rubbino’s illustrations have a looseness of line and are wonderfully lively and expressive. A book that is as beautiful as it is useful. ~ Andrea Reece

A Book of Feelings by Amanda McCardie
A Book of Feelings stars a brother and sister, Sam and Kate, and their dog, Fuzzy Bean. Sam and Kate know what makes them happy: cuddling Mum, reading a story with Dad, swimming, running and dancing...lots of things. But they don't feel happy all the time (nor does Fuzzy Bean), and in the course of the book we see them feeling grumpy, embarrassed, shy, nervous, frightened, sad and jealous. Both words and pictures portray the children in many different situations at home and at school, and show how they change over time, how emotions can escalate, and how people can help each other. Amanda McCardie's supremely subtle and sensitive text is as alive to the nuances of children's behaviour as Salvatore Rubbino's amazing pictures.
“A warm and gentle narrative approach to emotions, perfect for sharing with children and simulating discussion.” The Bookseller
