Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

First-time author and artist Cain treads familiar ground here with a picture book that pales in comparison to Jamie Lee Curtis's subtler and snappier Today I Feel Silly. From scared to shy, bored to jealous, Cain covers the emotional waterfront in a series of rhymes paired with pastel pencil drawings featuring elflike children. The opening spread, "silly" ("Silly is the way I feel when I make a funny face/ and wear a goofy, poofy hat that takes up lots of space"), casts a child in a rainbow-colored clown outfit against a sunny yellow backdrop and heralds the book's main artistic conceitAa palette picked to suit each mood. "Bored," for instance, is played out on a background of drab tans and browns, while "angry" steams with fiery reds and purples. Though energetic and bright, the cartoonlike illustrations skate close to being strident, while the verses are pedestrian ("Sometimes I feel so very sad and really don't know why./ Instead of playing and having fun, I cry and cry and cry"). Ages 4-8. (Nov.)

5.0 out of 5 stars For toddlers, not for adults June 4 2004
This book on feelings is a one in a million. It is attuned with my 3-year old by using age-appropriate language and non-threatening images to represent her feelings. It doesn't overdo it in a way that adults sometimes think is needed to express an emotion, thereby scaring the child off. And it's fun. Right on target.

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotions are Go! May 11 2004
I collect children's books and I usually buy them if they have artwork that I fall in love with. I definitely fell in love with the artwork in this book. It's so vibrant and fun! Then when I read it, I discovered how valuable this book could be for parents and teachers. Children need to learn that it is ok for them to have different emotions, and this book explores plenty of them. I have to admit, the day I bought this book, the "disappointed" page fit me perfectly...the same scenario and all. I just couldn't resist it. It's just a wonderful book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for 1st graders June 24 2004
My first grade students love this book! I read this book the first week of school while talking about emotions and how we shared them at school. The art work is fun, colorful and just plain wonderful! My students have loved this book so much that my copy is dog-eared.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable and made my family laugh July 24 2003
"Feelings come and feelings go.
I never know what they?ll be.
Silly or angry, happy or sad-
They're all a part of me!"
Have you ever had a day where you have been experiencing such a wide array of stressful emotions, you just need a good laugh? Well this book turned out to be quite healing when my husband found it and decided to read it to me. I was more than amused. He took great "glee" in saying I was definitely the girl with the ponytail on the top of her head. We also had a good laugh over:
"Angry is how I feel right now,"
I shout with a mighty roar.
I mostly want to frown and growl
and stomp upon the floor.
Jana Cain has beautifully illustrated the book in pastel shades. Each page reflects the emotions in the color you would imagine an emotion to be. The "angry page" is red while the "happy page" bursts with yellow from the sun shining down on a girl on a swing.
The emotions presented in words and pictures include: silly, scared, disappointed, happy, sad, angry, thankful, frustrated, shy, bored, excited, jealous, and proud.
This book was also created to encourage children to recognize their emotions. In the back of the book there is "a note to parents" showing how this book can be used to help children understand what circumstances make them feel happy, sad, jealous, and so on. You can then discuss the emotion and decide which action is best when you feel that emotion. "It is not okay to hit people or throw things, but it is okay to stomp your feet."
Jana Cain's family posed for the illustrations and enjoy swimming, biking, hanging out with friends and now understand all their emotions. Some day they are looking forward to traveling the world and experiencing their emotions in new places.
Definitely a book of feelings for kids of all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars A favorite Jan. 17 2004
By A Customer
My 2 1/2 year old loves this book! She also tries to use the feelings described in the book in context during play (she sat down with a pout the other day and said she was "boring"). It has really helped to give her the words to describe how she is feeling or just helps her understand these more complex concepts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! Oct. 16 2003
By A Customer
The beautiful illustrations are tons of fun & the words are wonderful! I brought this book for my 5 yr old who we adopted and 3 1/2 and has all sort of feelings he usually acts out on. The book gave us a way to discuss recognizing and articulating feelings, and how to deal with them in an appropriate ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL Book! Jan. 27 2003
This is my three year old's favorite book, and it has done a lot of good for him! He first took to it because of the fun artwork, and catchy rhymes. Since we have started reading about it, he's been talking about his feelings all the time, from saying things like "I'm so happy right now" to "Do you feel frustrated, mommy?", which is really suprising coming from him! We've been able to talk to him about other things now that he understands feelings better and what they mean. So I highly recommend this book to everyone, and am looking forward to her writing another one.

5.0 out of 5 stars a revelation into children's feelings Nov. 28 2000
By A Customer
take it from a grandmother of 16--this is a great book for children. I read this book to the "group" (age range - 16 yrs. thru 9 months)over the Thanksgiving Holiday. What reactions from all (except the 9 month old). As I read and showed the pictures depicting the emotions, their facial expressions mimicked the pictures and they actually started talking about when & why they'd feel these certain ways. I also looked at Jaimie Lee's book, and felt there was too much going on on the pages which would be a distraction plus Cain's drawings outdid the Jaimie book. what a fantastic book for drawing out children's so often unspoken emotions.

My son instantly loved the book! He understood most of the adjectives for emotions. "frustrated", "jealous", and "bored" were not as easily understood. Read more

It's a cute book but the pictures seem to be too busy and don't capture my daughter's attention.
