review The Color MonsterOr feelings and it takes a wiser reflective hand to sort them out and guide him through them Yet as the girl as narrator guides us through Llenas wonderful mixed media pop up collages we find ourselves using both pictures and words to understand these complex emotions Fantastic first book on emotions This book is engaging from the very front cover and this only increases with the pop up element When I read this together with a group of friends we had a Love Triangle Three Sides To The Story lengthy discussion before we even opened the book about whether there were four monsters or one with different personalities and therefore able to begin to make predictions about what might happen Children might enjoy doing the same Indeed on the final page the story doesn t explicitly spell out how the monster feels so children can have fun guessing and uestioning what it feelsike to be in ovethe it feels ike to be in Jane A Day 5 Year Journal 365 Witticisms By Jane Austen loveThe of the book allows for a conversation with children about managing their feelings putting them into bottles and discussing why they might be feeling a particular emotion As a group we discussed the interesting allocation of colour to the different emotions Children who are particularly struggling could simply assign themselves a colour for their feeling However I wonder how useful this colour allocation is as some children might have a favourite colour associated with a negative emotion Overall I really appreciat. S numbers shapes andetters but what about their feelings By illustrating such common emotions as happiness sadness anger fear and calm this sensitive book gently. E how this book tackles the tricky issue of engaging our Emotions Using Fun Child using fun child It is written a very clever way so that children of all ages can understand and engage with the text I think it could be used with children from Nursery all the way through Primary School Great pop up book introducing young children to different emotions and moods Text 1 starIllustrations 4 starsLove the collage y illustrations of this picture book but the text has some troubling issues While it is vital to teach children to identify their emotions it is just as important to help them understand that it is normal to feel than one single emotion at a time even about the same thingpersonidea further abeling emotions with specific colors doesn t work as a one size fits all solution since color is a very personal experience people feel very differently about the same color Telling children that blue is sadness will confuse children who experience blue as tranuility or power or curiosity or any number of other emotions This book goes so far as to tell children how to experience certain emotions When you re sad you hide and want to be aloneWhile that is one way to feel sadness there are so many others ways to be sad and so many other behaviors to express sadness So I think this book does a disservice to children than teaching them anything about emotion. Encourages young children to open up with parents teachers and daycare providers And kids will LOVE the bright illustrations and amazing 3 D pop ups on every page. ,
