We love Mies Van Hout's book, Happy, chock full of colourful fish showing different emotions. The children loved guessing what emotion each fish was showing as we turned the pages. We discussed colours and feelings and expressions. Then, the class created their own fish with chalk pastels.
Mies Van Hout wrote and illustrated a second book called Friends, this time with two characters. The friends in this book play, fight, tease, laugh, cry and everything in between.
