The book opens with the question: "How are you feeling today?" And this leads on to a spread by spread presentation of a wide range of feelings, including:
*Happy * Sad * Excited * Bored * Interested * Angry * Upset * Calm * Silly * Lonely * Scared * Safe *Embarrassed * Shy * Confident * Worried * Jealous * Satisfied
The final spread is about Feeling Better because sharing and talking about feelings helps us to feel better.
The approach and design follows The Great Big Book of Families, with lots of different children in lots of different situations, brief text captions and questions and plenty of humour to make sure the book is fun.
Mary Hoffman and Ros Asquith look at feelings in family life, at school and everywhere with the same warmth, wit and sensitivity that they brought to their award- winning The Great Big Book of Families.

'Easy-to-read yet thought-provoking.'
I enjoyed the jovial format that kept my five year olds's attention. Some feelings are hard to describe yet this book captures them beautifully.'
'My son adored this book .When he felt angry the day after reading the book, he went off and drew some pictures of steam coming out of his ears.'
'We had a great discussion around what you can do when you feel angry, instead of hurting other people. Helpful as my three year old struggles with her emotions towards her newborn baby sister.'
'There are lots of things to like about this book not east the illustrations which fill each page.'

A great book for encouraging children to explore and reflect upon a whole range of feelings. It is a must to have in an infant or nursery class as well as being excellent for family browsing.'
