Los estados mentales (States of Mind) - Reviewed by School Library Journal
Short chapters explain why people may feel certain emotions, how to manage those feelings, and how to identify them in others. Siento aburrimiento (I Feel Bored) states that boredom can happen at home or at school and even when we’re doing something we enjoy. Practical ways to handle feelings are shared, which caregivers and educators will find useful in their attempts to teach healthy coping mechanisms. Positive emotions such as confidence and love are presented as feelings that readers can understand and also use to help those around them. However, ability diversity is not represented visually. Discussion questions, a visual glossary, and suggestions for further exploration with the help of trusted adults are included. VERDICT This series offers a starting point to navigate all types of emotions, but it falls short in its representation of ability diversity.
