Like its companion book “Kelly Bear Behavior,” this cleverly illustrated book for very young readers (age 3 to 8) features Kelly Bear and the Bear family, all of whom are green bears. Having no race or gender, the characters are automatically able to be identified with by any young child. Each emotion is illustrated by a large cartoon drawing, introduced with a brief story, and accompanied by discussion questions. It is ideal for circle time discussion in preschool or kindergarten. because the children can see each illustration while the teacher reads the accompanying story. It teaches about ten common emotions. Although it may be read by a child alone, it is especially useful as a read-along book with the parent or when read to a group of children.
