K-Gr 1-One must wonder just what purpose these books serve. Each one has close-up color photos of young children expressing the indicated emotion. The spare text, one sentence per page, doesn't add much-e.g., "I am happy-. When I am happy my cheeks look round-. There are lines on my nose when I am happy." Each volume concludes with a list of six "Words to Know," each illustrated with a small photo. Indexes, if they can be termed as such, are also included ("cheeks," "eyes," "laugh," and three more similar entries make up the entire index in Happy). The "Thoughts and Feelings" series (The Child's World) is far more useful.-Kate Kohlbeck, Randall School, Waukesha, WI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
