Much of our lives – whether we are kids or grown-ups – boil down to how successfully we recognize and control our emotions. Children as young as 2 are able to recognize a feeling by the other person’s expression, and at the age of 3 children can already identify their own feelings and comfort a sad person. In What A Feeling! the Mokomakis experience the full scale of the most common feelings. Can you tell what they are? And how do you feel? The little owls provide help and clues along the way. Oh, and there is a puzzle to solve, too.. The Book starts as a new Mokomaki trilogy: the following books will deal with colors (What A Color!) and forms (What A Form!)
