by Goldie Millar & Lisa A. Berger, illus. by Hazel Mitchell. Knowing the words to express their feelings helps kids identify, describe, share, and understand emotions in themselves and others. With the alphabet as a reference, kids learn that C is for confused, L is for lonely, Z is for zany, etc. Includes an activity guide with suggestions for music, art, role play, and story-telling; building a “feelings” vocabulary; encouraging empathy; and hosting “feeling of the day” discussions. This little book can be a boon for music class! As children learn about feelings, play examples of music that expresses those emotions.
