Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mama who believes you're never too old for magical stories of talking animals and imaginary worlds.
6.5 / 7.0

Our hearts many feelings are beautifully summed up in this stunning and relatable book about feelings and emotions. The messaging and metaphors are simple enough for young readers to understand, but profound enough for adult readers to contemplate and learn from. This book is great to use talk with kids about emotions, our power over them, and how better understanding our own emotions can help us empathize with others.

4.5 / 7.0

The illustrations in this book are absolutely gorgeous, and absolutely my favorite part—the grey and yellow color scheme convey the emotions of the story in a very powerful way! The message is sweet, but I felt just a tad abstract for such a young audience.
