What did you like about the book:   A precious story about feelings in Spanish & English filled with all the characters from the other books.  It begins with ‘Can you show me a happy face?’, ‘Can you show me a sad face?’, ‘How does feeling excited look?’, ‘How does feeling angry look?’, ‘How does feeling brave look?’, ‘How does feeling afraid look?’, ‘Can you show me a surprised face?’, ‘Can you show me a confused face?’, ‘How does feeling proud look?’, ‘How does feeling shy look?’ and ‘How does feeling tired look?’  The colorful illustrations and simple text are sure to entertain young readers over and over.

Anything you didn’t like about it? No.
