Dear Reader,

Cars have feelings! Or at least some look like they do. 

My picture book, MOODY MOODY CARS, shows genuine, classic automobile faces showing a range of emotions, from angry to excited. The cars exclaim, "Freewheeling! Full of feeling! Travelling near and far. Honk if you see me. I'm a Moody Moody Car!" Being able to read emotions is like having a GPS for life. 

Research says talking about feelings helps kids understand them. Children who are better at recognizing and communicating emotions are also:
  • Better liked by peers;
  • Less likely to act out aggressively;
  • Better achieving in school.
  I'm a clinical psychologist and mom of four, based in Princeton, NJ. This book is based on a game I used to play with my kids of looking for cars with emotional faces. Once you start seeing MOODY MOODY CARS, you'll never be able to stop!

Warm wishes,

"Not since Inside Out has a story about feelings felt so innovative." —Parents

"The secret emotions of automobiles are revealed in a rhyming picture book about their many moods....The concept is clever, and the cars look great.... A fun concept well executed, this picture book feels like a joyride." —Kirkus

"A good addition to libraries and classrooms as a way to normalize talking and recognizing feelings and broaching emotional intelligence with the added bonus of a subject many children obsess over." —School Library Journal
