My Feelings

Sunbird. May 2021. 24p. Board $9.99. ISBN 9781503758469.
PreS-K–A prickly porcupine demonstrates and describes emotions in this relatable board book. Each spread contains a headline emotion with a one-sentence description of the emotion in context. “Disappointed. I feel disappointed when I get socks for my birthday.” The emotions with more negative connotations begin the book, but it ends on positive ones such as “Excited” and “Love.” A bright color palette enhances the illustrated porcupine in various settings. This will be a great conversation starter about emotions.
VERDICT Spare text and simple illustrations make this a great choice for one-on-one reading.
