This 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.
