Mies Van Hout is a brilliant artist, and this book is evocative and fit for children of all ages, even 51 year old kids, like me. Content was my favourite.

I tried this book during Family Storytime and it was a dud for most of the kids. A couple of the older preschool aged kids interacted with me as we read it, but most of the others, especially younger kids, grew restless as it went on. With its beautiful illustrations and few words, it's a great lap-sit book to practice one-on-one dialogic reading with young children, and older kids would dig it, but I probably won't use it again for Storytime.

Very bright and right on the button illustrations of emotions using just one word.

This book has just about the cutest illustrations ever. It has one word on each page and fish expressing that word's emotion. I had lots of fun with the neighbor kids imitating the expressions that go along with these emotions. Good vocab builder for the more ephemeral concepts.
