Rated 5 out of 5 by from A New Favourite! This is a great book. It's fun and entertaining, and it helps kids learn about different emotions -- and the fact that it's okay to feel lots of different things. (And it's had my 14-month-old saying "cluck, cluck" for a few months now.)

Editorial Reviews

Happy Hippo, Angry Duck: A Book of Moods Sandra Boynton. Little Simon, $5.99 (16p) ISBN 978-1-4424-1731-1 With her familiar brand of gentle absurdity, Boynton creates similes that ascribe moods to various animals. "Hello, Little Person!/ How are you today?" greets a concerned-looking bear. Part of the book's pleasure is that Boynton doesn't rely on clichéd animal personifications: "Are you happy as a hippo?/ Or angry as a duck?/ Maybe sad as a chicken?/ (‘Can you sadly say, "Cluck Cluck?" ')"After the characters tell readers, "Well, I hope you are happy./ But if you are not,/ you have friends who will help you./ We like you a lot," even kids in the stoniest of moods will feel the effect of this pick-me-up. All ages. --Publishers Weekly, June 20, 2011, *STAR
