This picture book chock-a-block full of small animals and bugs, doing and saying things to show us how they are feeling, is somewhat reminiscent of the Richard Scarry ‘busy books’ and none the worse for that. We are told there is a ‘rainbow’ of emotions to find out about, and there is certainly a full rainbow of bright colours and activity going on here. In double-page spreads we learn about ten different emotions: being Happy, Worried, Calm, Excited, Shy, Scared, Curious, Sad, Grumpy, and Sorry. Many points to discuss, lots of detail to look at and enjoy, and – importantly – humour too will make the book good for schools as well as home, and there are worthwhile suggestions given for helping us get out of the more negative emotions. It’s a good thing when we can see animals, even those pictured in comic style, acting out the ways we feel and how we deal with those feelings.
