Animals Have Feelings, Too!: Exploring Emotions From A to Z
Author: Karen Lee Stevens
Publisher: All for Animals
Genre: Children’s Picture Book
Filled with humor and whimsical illustrations, this enchanting and educational A to Z guide takes young readers on a journey through the alphabet with a lovable Labrador retriever named Sandy, who shows kids that animals and people share many of the same feelings. From A is for Affectionate to Z is for Zonked, Animals Have Feelings, Too! helps children to understand and express their feelings and to treat animals with kindness and respect.
Sandy is a Yellow Labrador Retriever who lets us know that animals have feelings too. Each letter of the alphabet is used for a word that means an emotion, and then a short little story that describes the surcumstances that may cause Sandy to have that feeling. Examples are G is for grumpy and H is for heroic.
This is an adorable book that will help small children understand more about their pets. I has cute illustrations and is a really short read.
I enjoyed the book, and I think all children will love this book too.
