How Do YOU Feel?
By Anthony Browne
How do YOU Feel? has been a favourite in our house for a long time. It goes through a number of feelings that children will easily identify with, and illustrates them with the humour that Anthony Browne is well known for.
Children will identify with the feelings described as they are brilliantly illustrated by the monkey’s clear facial expressions, while the text, with its emphasis on how the monkey feels ‘sometimes’ (i.e. not always) helps children to understand that feelings are often temporary, and can change very quickly from one to another. The little monkey is very comfortable with his changeable emotions, and kids can see that they too can be comfortable with their myriad of feelings.
