Reviews

This deceptively simple book introduces an overalls-clad chimp who evokes a spectrum of emotions as he answers the titular question. Though the minimal text is forthright ("Sometimes I feel very happy... and sometimes I feel sad"), Browne's (Me and You) nuanced watercolor and gouache pictures use body language and other cues to amplify each emotion. Crayon-box colors (temporarily) turn gray for an image of the "bored" chimp, who has abandoned his toys in a corner. Pictured against a blank white backdrop, the "lonely" animal is seen at a fraction of his normal size, hands clasped in front of him. Even the chimp's sneakers appear to smile as he jumps for joy when happy, while his sad persona looks out glumly from a window as rain falls (indoors) and a flower droops. The chimp models 14 emotions and other feelings (like hungry and full) in total, all of which reappear in miniature on a final spread that asks readers directly how they feel, cementing the book's usefulness as a tool to both introduce emotions and encourage discussions of readers' feelings. Ages 3-up. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

PreS-K-"How do you feel?" asks an adorable, overall-clad monkey. The cute little primate discusses a range of emotions that children might experience in a variety of situations. Sometimes he is bored or lonely or sad. He also feels happy, curious, or surprised. He can be worried or silly, hungry or full. He is the focal point of each watercolor and gouache painting. His facial expressions, along with the palette and design of the illustrations, reflect the appropriate emotion. For example, the text, "and sometimes I feel lonely" appears on a spread of white space broken up only by a small image of the frowning monkey standing alone. He feels guilty as he stands beside a drawing on the wall, a pencil concealed behind his back. At the end of the book, the monkey asks, "How do YOU feel?" Miniatures of each preceding illustration reiterate all the feelings introduced. Although this book provides a comprehensive introduction to positive and negative emotions, the presentation is somewhat flat. As the sole character, the monkey does not interact with friends or family. He deals with his feelings on his own. For a more engaging selection, try Janan Cain's The Way I Feel (Parenting, 2000) or Aliki's Feelings (Greenwillow, 1984).-Linda L.
