Sometimes I Feel Sunny

(4 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Picture Corgi

An introduction for the youngest readers to the different feelings they experience, from sad to funny, angry to sunny, and even lost and small.

Shields and Birkett allow their readers to see each feeling through the clear text and the simple images, which show exactly what each feeling is like. Text size and format also imitates the meaning of the words, so that the spread with 'sometimes I feel frightened, scared and lost and small' shows a small child, knee-high to all those around him, lost in a forest of legs.

Resolution is offered at the end of the story, which finishes with the child feeling loved.
