It’s sometimes easy to forget that encouraging small children to identify and express their positive emotions is just as important as helping them to deal with the negative ones. This book takes nine uplifting feelings and presents them one ata time, in a way that opens multiple avenues of exploration for each. The settings are simple and familiar with an occasional touch of fantasy, and the fresh, engaging illustrations are complemented with well-chosen photography and clear, visual instructions for signing in BSL. The notes for adults at the end include some useful ideas for discussion and follow-on activities; three more titles in the series cover uncomfortable, physical and familiar feelings respectively.
