Let's Make Faces! Have Fun Drawing Different Faces for Different Feelings! by Gerard Emerson Langeler

Kids can draw faces, wipe them clean, and then draw them again! Feelings can be so confusing. Just when kids begin to understand their own emotions, they are expected to understand what other people are feeling, too. This book will help children identify various facial expressions and the feelings behind them. The left-hand pages show what a person's face might look like while feeling a certain emotion (happy, sad, frustrated, etc.). The corresponding text also explains each emotion, relating it to real-life situations and possible triggers. 'Talking points' encourage children to relate feelings to things that have happened in their lives. This interactive aspect of the book makes every read a new experience! Finally, on the opposite page, the child can copy the appropriate expression onto a blank face. Copying the contours of the mouth, eyebrows, and eyes helps the child retain the details of how feelings may 'look' on other people. A wonderful tool for parents or teachers, this book will: help children identify facial expressions; develop and explain vocabulary related to emotions; and, facilitate important conversations between adults and children. This title is great for groups, or one-on-one and comes with dry-erase marker included!

About the Author

A 1936 cum laude graduate of Williams College in Massachusetts, majoring in English, Gerard Emerson Langeler (named after Ralph Waldo Emerson) founded one of New England's largest advertising agencies. After retiring in 1982, he devoted his time to writing, producing an historical novel about the first Angle king of England, in the year 411. He became a Life Member of the prestigious Sutton Hoo Society of Woodbridge, East Anglia. An Eagle Scout, his earlier work with children as Scoutmaster and Sunday School superintendent led him to write his latest book, Let's Make Faces, dealing with how facial expressions can lead to a better understanding of basic emotions. This was discovered to be a hands on working tool for caretakers of children with autism. Langeler is a member of the New Hampshire Autism Society and lives in Dover in a retirement complex where he continues to write material that is also enjoyed by the residents of similar facilities across the country.
