Feelings
by Aliki
Paperback      ISBN: 068806518x

This classic picture book from beloved author-illustrator Aliki is a great way to explore feelings with younger kids, whether at home or in the classroom. Happy, sad, shy, excited--how do you feel? No matter the emotion, Feelings explores it--and helps children understand and express their own feelings.

Best-selling author Aliki uses a child-friendly cartoon style to build empathy and awareness in young readers--and to help them find appropriate ways to handle their feelings. Short, funny comics show how children might feel in different situations--at a birthday party, when a beloved pet dies, on the first day of school, and more.

A timeless classic ideal for sharing.

Children often have difficulty articulating emotions. That fact is the underpinning for Aliki's catalog of feelings, be they happy, sad, or somewhere in between. --Booklist

A delightful book. --New York Times Book Review

An affordable anatomy class, this easy learning study aid contains careful, scientifically accurate line renderings of the body's organs and major systems: skeletal, muscular, nervous, digestive, reproductive, and more. A total of 43 coloring pages (often with several illustrations on each) offers numerous views, cross-sections, diagrams and detailed closeups, labelled and numbered to correspond with suggestions for coloring. These suggestions are specially designed to emphasize the structural relationship in the body. By working through each system, the reader will gain not only an intimate knowledge of the location, appearance and role of the body parts, this learning tool will also be laying the groundwork for more sophisticated studies of anatomy.
