More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Paula McMillen
Created specifically to address the needs of children with autism spectrum disorders, this book could support teaching activities with a much wider audience. Twelve basic emotions are depicted with exaggerated facial expressions on the children's faces. Background of the drawings is gray-tone with setting details that create possible context for the emotion displayed. Each full-page drawing is faced by a short poem which offers rhyming and synonymous words to aid learning. An author preface and a forward written by the editor in chief of Autism Spectrum Quarterly discuss the difficulty in recognizing facial expressions and labeling the accompanying feelings that are a common challenge for those with autism spectrum disorders. Without this level of understanding making appropriate social responses is also problematic. The forward also offers specific teaching suggestions for working with any children who have social learning challenges. Conceptual understanding of the connection between external behavior and internal mental states, i.e., "the feeling that gives rise to the facial expression" (p. 1) is emphasized. The inside of the dust jacket reproduces all twelve emotions and can be displayed as a poster or cut up to create "emotion cards." This is a high quality book with lots of possible uses in the elementary or special needs classroom. Parents could also follow the teaching tips offered at home. Reviewer: Paula McMillen, Ph.D.
