What a great and fun way to introduce children to the meaning of specific gestures. A kiss means I love you, a wave means hello. A smile means im happy, a tug means lets go! A laugh means its funny, a cry means im sad and so many other meanings. Featuring incredible photos, Allen teaches young children the meaning of gestures through nonverbal communication. The rhyming text and on point pictures makes this book an extraordinary choice when it comes to teaching children different forms of communication. This is essential to students learning because it is crucial to understated how to receive and relay messages when no words are being used. Crack the book open and get to learning! ( )

When selecting literature for children, it is very important to me that most if not all books I select show cultural diversity. This book has some wonderful photographs of children and parents interacting, and showing love for each other in many positive ways. This is an excellent book for young children to read and relate to. Young children will be able to identify with the children in the book and all of the differing expressions of love. ( )

This book has great illustrated pictures that express emotions. It can be used for personality development as children are learning to express emotions.
