PreS-Gr 1-Each volume in this mediocre set introduces a basic emotion through a story about a common childhood event. For example, a boy feels sad when he has to move and a girl feels lonely when her friends are not at the park. The table of contents refers to chapter headings that do not exist in the text. On each spread, the verso contains simple sentences that are appropriate in structure and vocabulary for emerging readers, and the recto show an unattractive cartoon illustration. Vocabulary words are occasionally defined in context; the picture glossaries, which do not have verbal definitions, frequently include items young readers would already know and omit the more difficult words. Given that this series will only be marginally helpful with the Common Core State Standards, Todd Parr's The Feelings Book (Little, Brown, 2000) is just as good and more enjoyable. α(c) Copyright 2011.

For moody tykes still trying to put words to their feelings, this entry in the How Do I Feel? series is a decent way to turn those red-faced rages into teaching moments. It stars an unnamed overall-wearing lad who has a favorite red car. But all is not well! “My big brother likes to hide my car. His name is Matt.” The slightly devious-looking Matt stashes the car under the bed, the younger brother finds it, and, you guessed it, anger ensues: “I yell at Matt when I am mad at him.” Matt apologizes, they hug, and then they play together. Aside from a vague nod at forgiveness, there are not many lessons to be learned here, so it might make better sense to own the whole series and properly introduce the entire emotional panoply. Preschool. --Daniel Kraus
