(Claudia) Brief ageappropriate scenarios invite readers to guess the emotions (A to Z) engagingly enacted in photos of a multicultural crew of early elementary children. Clear layout provides an entertaining letterlearning opportunity. (KGr. 2)
(SLJ) Good idea, but cluttered layout, scenarios inconsistent, some vocabulary beyond 1st graders ("queasy" "vain")
(Amazon.com) Of 7 volunteer reviewers on Amazon.com, 4 who used the book with children (1 kindergarten teacher; 3 parents: of threeyearold, preschooler, and "family") all gave the book top rating. not for hcl Great Job Mom! This book is a home run!
For those of you who don't know I am, I'm bonnie's first kid! Which stopped her from teaching at the little red schoolhouse! For those of you who dislike this book do you know hard it is to write a book with your first grade class! My mom is amazing and has raised 3 amazing children (including me!) My mom has always tried hard and put in 100%. So all of you have to realize how hard it is to write a book in the first place. My mom even gave a assembly to my school about it. So mom, I Love You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Awards: none
Summary: While going through the alphabet, this book goes through the range of emotions humans experience. Each emotion and letter includes an instance in which the emotion is experienced or relevan.
Review: This book would help students verbalize and understand the feelings they may experience. It also encourages positive handling of these emotions which is critical to learn for young students.
