Opposite the simple declarative sentence, "Walter was worried" is a portrait of a very worried Walter. But wait! The letters that spell out his feelings form his facial characteristics, as well as his expression. Gradually a simple story unfolds: the sky grows dark, the fog rolls in, lightning lights the sky, and thunder shakes the trees; Priscilla was puzzled, Shirley was shocked, Frederick was frightened... and eventually (when the sun came out) Henry was hopeful, and Elliot ecstatic.

This title has Common Core connections.

Good for young readers. Facial expression on childrens faces are spelled out like a puzzle. Children would have to look at word on preceeding page and figure out each letter on face to spell.Vivid colors and good

This is a book about emotions and the reasons for feeling that way.From feeling worried to delighted this book passes through a whole range of emotions. The illustrations throughout this book are very expressive as the emotion is spelled out on each face.

When I read this book I didn't realize at first that in each of the faces the emotions were spelled out in it. Such a neat and original idea. This is a good book to share with your class to show examples about emotions.
