A simple story about feeling mixed up and looking at each individual emotion in terms of colors and relating it to physical sensation. My only problem with this story is it seems to indicate (whether intentionally or not) that each emotion should be able to be divided up clearly and "put in its place". It's a great book. The art and pop-ups are awesome. Learning to identify feelings when we're feeling "mixed up" is so important. But I'm not sure I'm on board with separating each feeling and putting it in a jar. My son loves this book, so I upped my rating from a 3 (for the reasons listed above) to a 4.
