Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Priscilla introduces her friends, one at a time, and describes how each is feeling and why. "Oh, Shelly's feeling shy. Meeting new people makes her feel shy." Pictured on the left with brief text and ample white space, Priscilla mimics each emotion with her facial expression and body language. On the right, in a full-page watercolor illustration with a narrow white border, Leghorn depicts the child in question living out each feeling. A variety of multiethnic youngsters express friendliness, sadness, happiness, silliness, anger, confidence, frustration, loneliness, excitement, fear, and security. All the characters appear together in a double-page spread at the end, obviously pleased with themselves. In an introductory note to adults, the author suggests that they expand the interactive text by having children draw or act out different feelings. While not particularly exciting, this is a serviceable vehicle for exploring the topic. Pair it with Jeanne Modesitt's Sometimes I Feel Like a Mouse (Scholastic, 1992).-Marianne Saccardi, Norwalk Community-Technical College, CT
