Description: Happiness, loneliness, embarrassment, jealousy, and excitement are just some of the feelings people experience. And that's what the feature book is all about. The sights and sounds of New York City's Central Park provide the backdrop for LeVar's probe into the world of feelings.

Activity Suggestion: "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me" is a well-known phrase to children. In the story FEELINGS, Baby Bird's response to that phrase is "that's what you think". Ask the students what they think Baby Bird meant. Talk about words that can hurt other people.
