Book review: Wild Feelings, by David Milgrim

Milgrim, David. Wild Feelings.  Henry Holt and Company, 2015. $16.99. ISBN 978-0-8050-9587-6. Unp. Ages 1-4. P8 Q8

Milgrim Wild FeelingsThis is a funny story about a little boy who has feelings.  The author asks do you ever “feel as batty as a bat?” ect.  The fun thing is the little boy is in different animal costumes to match the feelings such as a mouse, ox, kitten, etc.  The end pages and conclusion is that it is “only natural” to feel this way sometimes. The funny thing is that the last page has a picture of the little boy running naked – when it says “only natural.”  This would be a great book to start a conversation about feelings and also what different colloquialisms mean.
