About the Book and Author / Illustrator
This bright and bold picture book with silver foiling on the cover from the brilliant illustrator and author Sophy Henn is the perfect way for kids to start to recognise all kinds of emotions and to inspire them to have the confidence to find their own distinct rhythm.
We love the energy this book has – it makes you glad to be alive and able to enjoy music and the feelings it creates in us.
Thanks to Simon & Schuster for sending us a copy for Edith enjoy reading with her mummy.
Edith talked about the different emotions associated the music we were listening to
Edith really enjoyed this book and identified straight away the different music types and the colours that matched the moods and emotions and how they made her feel.
It was lovely in the car when listening to radio Edith mentioned ‘This song make me feel happy like in the book’ and ‘This is a nice relaxing song Mummy’.
I found it lovely when reading the book with Edith we were talking about the different emotions associated with different music and how the music made her feel.
We enjoyed the pictures in the book and Edith related to the young girl being like her – especially with a pink a tutu skirt.
This is a really enjoyable and very different book but a great way of getting children to associate different music with feelings and ways to express their emotions in music whilst also exploring the types they enjoy.
