Review: This is a great book to introduce young children to a variety of words for emotions. Using animal in the illustrations and in the sentences that use each emotion, as well as giving a simple definition for each one, makes them relatable for children. From affectionate to zonked, and 24 emotions in between, Sandy the yellow Lab and his feline friend Willow do a wonderful job of sharing their feelings, which gives youngsters a chance to talk about situations where THEY might experience that emotion.

The illustrations are simple so that they don't overwhelm the young reader. I would recommend it for parents, teachers, or anyone with a youngster in their life.

Recommended for ages 4 and up.

Rating: Five stars
