Description

This interesting book shows children how our faces and body postures show the emotions we are feeling. Throughout the book and in an activity at the end, young readers are asked to figure out which emotions the children pictured in the photos are feeling. This important book will help children read the unspoken feelings that they and others express. It can be a big help to children with Aspergers syndrome, who may have difficulty picking up on social cues and reading the body language of others.
