Review:

The Feelings and Dealings set of 48 colorfully illustrated durable cards, demonstrates emotions via 24 individual pose cards showing facial expressions and body language and 24 cards that establish emotions in a variety of age-appropriate interactions with family, friends and even pets.

The instructions offer game play and discussion ideas that include matching and/or acting out the emotions on the cards, or describing the differences of gender, skin, hair or eye color. Our testers reported many interesting conversations springing from cards that show a child eating alone in the school lunchroom, another who dropped her ice cream cone, and a girl – focused only on her smartphone – who's about to lose her breakfast to her dog. Parents were delighted and sometimes surprised by what their children observed, questioned, and communicated.
