Emotions are difficult for most children to understand, they pose a particular challenge for children with autism spectrum disorders due to their literal and concrete way of thinking and learning. Help for children now comes in the form of this charming picture book, which presents examples of the basic emotions, happy, sad, mad, etc., in environments and situations that are familiar to children and, therefore, are easier to understand. Fun activities at the back of the book make this a truly interactive instructional experience.
