PreSchool-Grade 1-Nine full-color photos of different children and nine short sentences (one per double-page spread) illustrate the specific emotion highlighted in each title. The bright, attractive format includes a table of contents, a page of definitions, a short list of other books on the subject and several suggested Internet sites. Although all of this seems to be a bit of overkill, the series is unique in providing such simple, basic tools to initiate discussion of feelings with very young children. It also provides beginning readers with a source they can read independently.
