Storybook of Feelings Collection
by J.R. Robinson
Spiffy Kids are the crazy, fun loving characters that stay by your side every moment of your day--they're those wonderful things we call feelings. So whether it's Mad, Happy, Sad, Shy, Worry, or any of the many other Spiffy Kids, at least one is always with you -- even right now! This clever little book describes a child's various emotions in a fun and entertaining way, with bright illustrations and lots of humor. It also gives children ways of dealing with these feelings and lets them know they are not alone. Everyone struggles with being mad, having worry, and sadness, and everyone has moments of being happy. Spiffy Kids is a must have for any child's library! The Spiffy Kids were created by a seven year old girl who grew up with an important rule of thumb. Never completely lose what it is like to be a child. By using her imagination, she came up with a way to express herself, giving rise to fun characters that children can relate to.

Sometimes it's hard for kids to deal with all of the various emotions that go on inside of everybody. One minute you can be happy and the next minute sad. This book doesn't call them feelings, they're called Spiffy Kids. Sometimes children don't know what to do with all the emotions they are feeling. They are given help with that in this book. They get to know their emotions in an interesting and helpful way. They get to see that they aren't the only ones feeling these things. Everyone does. This is a fun and interesting way for children to get to know their feelings through the characters in the book. They will get to know that the Spiffy Kids are right there with them all the time. The characters are given names of emotions which help the child have fun, such as Mad, Happy, Sad, Shy and Worry along with many others. There are cute colorful pictures of the Spiffy Kids that show their emotions so that the child reading can relate. I particularly liked the quote from the book, "No one's going to make me feel bad about being me! Because I'm bold! I'm brave! so self-assured! Don't you agree?! What a wonderful, fun way for children to learn about and deal with their emotions. Every child should have this book on their shelf to read and re-read when those emotions kick in.
