"This picture books helps start a dialogue between little readers and their caregivers about all the feelings a person can experience. The expressive and dynamic illustrations capture sadness, love, fear, and more in easily accessible ways . . . The text addresses the impacts emotions can leave, . . . [and] goes the extra mile by showing how our interpretations of other people's emotions can improve our relationships with them. . . . An effective and engaging text." --Kirkus Reviews
