Feelings: Understanding Through Rhyme is a brightly colored children’s book written by Susan Falkenhan and illustrated by Heather White. The book does exactly what the author hints in the title – it helps readers learn through rhyme. Each page is filled with colors and large words guaranteed to catch the eyes of young readers. Susan Falkenhan and Heather White take you through a world of feelings – from happy and cheerful to afraid to self-aware – while providing you with context clues as to what bolded words mean. At the end of the book, the author even provides games and ideas to help educate young children and expand their vocabulary. Included is a list with easy-to-understand definitions for you to work through with your reader.

I enjoyed Feelings: Understanding Through Rhyme. It is sure to catch the attention of young children and is likely best for those in preschool to early elementary school. Susan Falkenhan introduces readers to feeling words they may not already know. Instead of saying something is good or bad, this book focuses on educating and increasing vocabulary. In addition, kids are sure to pick up words they learn through rhyme. This book might have your little ones rhyming for the rest of the day! There is no storyline to the book so some children may have difficulty sitting still and focusing if it does not catch their attention. However, it is a quick read, so even the most antsy children should be able to make it through to the end.
