Book SynopsisWhat makes you feel happy, grumpy, shy, or surprised? Talking about emotions can help children understand them. In this brightly illustrated board book, an adorable--and relatable--prickly porcupine names and describes a variety of emotions, inspiring children and caregivers to talk about how they feel. Author-illustrator Jeffrey Turner has worked with many autistic and special needs children, and has seen that these children often need help in identifying what they are feeling, as they don`t always have the words to do so. He has also raised a child with special needs, who wanted to understand what he was feeling; imagined or real, and why. He used his experiences to create this book in hopes it would be a tool for all young children to understand themselves.
