I'm Sad! and other tricky feelings

by Clare Hibbert
 

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sarah Raymond
Sad, jealous, shocked, upset, scared, worried, angry, mean, and shy are all emotions outlined and detailed in this particular book in the "Feeling" series. There is no real particular story to follow, but instead each page focuses on a different emotion. The format of the book is the neatest feature because it is organized in a way to help young readers understand the various parts of a book and how to use them. For example, there is a clear and simple table of contents at the beginning of the book and an illustrated timeline at the bottom of each page to help readers navigate what they shall be reading about next. There is also a very simplistic index at the back of the book. Each page shows an emotion and includes corresponding illustrations to help readers understand the specific emotion. There are also cute examples of onomatopoeia on each page, although sometimes they have nothing to do with the emotion explained and seem rather arbitrary. Overall, although nicely illustrated, the lack of story and large breadth of emotions included leaves little room for depth and can result in a limited understanding of the subject, especially for young readers.

Children's Literature - Della A. Yannuzzi
Careers in the Creator and Media Sector attract many young people. The jobs available are varied, from journalism, publishing, radio, television, and many more. Author Rooney describes the different jobs that can be interesting and exciting, as well as demanding and difficult. This book is also a guide for anyone interested in working in the fields of journalism, radio, television, publishing, and other areas of media. For example, what does it take to become an actor, singer, dancer, or radio announcer? Profiles of people working in these fields will help readers understand what it takes to become a successful media professional. The author also explores important creative careers that are often behind the scenes, such as set designers or sound engineers. Included are lists of qualifications and required job tasks for different careers. For example, the tasks of a Video Editor are many, beginning with moving footage to a computer from cameras, films and archives, to using software to enhance shots digitally. Unfamiliar job descriptions such as an Advertising Account Executive are also explored. Creative and Media Careers is a good resource book for young people searching for that one creative job that is just right for them. Color photographs are included as well as a bibliography, websites, and glossary. Reviewer: Della A. Yannuzzi
