Inside Out Box of Mixed Emotions by Brittany Candau
Learn about five different emotions (Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust) through funny, real-life examples of what might make us feel each one. Sunshine, new adventures and sprinkles on cupcakes, might inspire Joy. Time-outs, people saying “don’t have a cow!,” and someone putting vegetables on your pizza might spark Anger. All five emotions have separate color stories that visually differentiate one from another (e.g. Anger is red; Sadness is blue). The emotions in the book are based on those of Riley Anderson, who was a main character in the Disney/Pixar animated movie “Inside Out”. A really fun read that would be great for kids ages 3 to 5.

Curious George Goes by Margaret Rey
Review by Lynn Rosen
I like this book because it has beautiful pictures. It also describes and shows us how to look at everyday things around us. It shows how we can all be artists when we learn to “see” differently. It can help us appreciate how everything is special when you really pay attention. It describes how the biggest part of being an artist is looking at what is there, wherever you are.
