School Library Journal - Carol Goldman, formerly at Queens Library, NY

"Emotions are serious and have been extensively researched, but these titles speak in a friendly, helpful, humorous tone, using colloquial language. Social-historical explanations are given for how emotions developed and evolved and the reasons we still have them: to maintain human connections and interactions. . . .well written, fact filled, eye-catching, and conversation-provoking. Recommended for public and school libraries." - School Library Journal

VOYA - Lucy Schall

"Emphasizing the link between thoughts and emotions, this series will help readers stay in touch with and direct their feelings in positive ways. A brain map in each volume explains reactions related to the topic. Negatives and positives of each emotion are explored. All emphasize the need to connect with others and to balance emotional reactions for positive growth. . . . Each volume provides scientific information, historical background, and extensive examples, but readers will be most drawn to the self-help sections that explain how that knowledge can change their lives. Junior and senior high students will be the best audiences. Because of relationships among topics and questions that promote critical thinking, students who use these sources for class presentations will find much material for discussion." - VOYA
