    I'm a big fan of foods with faces, so I knew I'd love this book. There's no really story here, but it does make a great read-aloud. It was a big hit at our recent storytime about feelings. I had to laugh at the note at the end of the book. The image of the book's creators combing New York City produce markets looking for "expressive produce" is a joy to envision.

    Oh my god I LOVED this book. I have such fond memories of it. Even after I'd read it a hundred times, I would thumb through it if I felt angry or sad and let the emotional fruits and veggies cheer me up. Lovely little book that I still remember all these years later. Oh my god I LOVED this book. I have such fond memories of it.

    As the parent of an emotionally disturbed foster daughter, I know first hand how necessary it is for young children to understand their emotions, whether positive or negative, and find appropriate outlets to express those emotions. This beautiful book is a wonderful way to expose young children to the concept of emotions, and to help a youngster know there is a difference between "sad" and "tired" and "lonely".

This beautiful book is a wonderful way to expose young children to the concept of emotions, and to help a youngster know there is a difference between "sad" and "tired" and "lonely". While the book does not always explain what those emotions mean, it presents the emotions with appropriate expressions that children themselves have held on their own faces. Tracing the down-turned "lips" of a vegetable, my daughter will say, "she's sad like I am sometimes". Then we talk about ways to express sadness/anger/frustration or whatever emotion the vegetable/fruit appears to be exhibiting. In this way, I think the book is a useful therapeutic tool for troubled children. It's great for "normal" kids, too. The book is fun, and full of life with bright, vibrant colors that make you want to smile. In addition, there is produce in here that most kids have never heard of, let alone seen. I believe that a picky child will be more willing to try a "new" food that she has at least heard of before and seen a picture of, than if she had never heard of them. That has to be a healthy thing! And lastly, this book isn't just for kids. I think it's a beautiful art book for people of all ages. I enjoy looking at the photos and trying to imagine how the item grew in just that way. Freyman is clever and artistic, and this book is as good as the previous ones.

    This charming picture book features photographs of fruits and vegetables, against a simple, solid color backdrop, that are clearly “feeling” emotions. The textual story asks the reader to explore how they feel in certain situations, while the pictures clearly reveal the facial expressions that go with the evoked emotion. With lines like, “Amused? Confused? Frustrated? Surprised?

The textual story asks the reader to explore how they feel in certain situations, while the pictures clearly reveal the facial expressions that go with the evoked emotion. With lines like, “Amused? Confused? Frustrated? Surprised? Try these feelings on for size.,” the book lends itself to be an excellent read aloud that would allow students to respond to the reader, explore and learn about their own emotions and the emotions of others. While this book is a worthy addition to a preschool or lower elementary class library, it is worth noting that the text size might be considered too small for the intended audience. Ages 4-8

    Possibly the most unsettling picture book I've ever read. It's the faces. I just can't. The other ones were okay; Baby Food was cute and Dog Food was SO adorable, but this one just gives me the heebs. Possibly the most unsettling picture book I've ever read. It's the faces.

    Super creative book! I found the vegetables to be very entertaining. Wish I had stumbled on this book when my children were small.. I was imagining the conversations we would have had. My son read the book after me and seemed disturbed by the oranges for some reason.

    I love this book! The pictures of food with faces has always made me smile. It's creative and I find it even more interesting looking at the pictures than the reading part!

    Based on concept alone, I have to give this book 5 stars. I ordered it for my oldest daughter a few years back from Scholastic, because, I had to admit, I wanted to read it. When her teachers saw it, they wanted to read it, too. Now I am passing a torn, taped and battered copy down to my youngest, hoping she will enjoy it just as much.

I ordered it for my oldest daughter a few years back from Scholastic, because, I had to admit, I wanted to read it. When her teachers saw it, they wanted to read it, too. Now I am passing a torn, taped and battered copy down to my youngest, hoping she will enjoy it just as much. There is something simply engaging about the bold, primary colours, the thick, glossy pages, and of course, the odd-shaped vegetables and fruits given more expression than one would ever think possible. Even babies will be entertained by this short volume for the lively colours and comic depictions of common facial expressions. According to the final page, the authors combed New York City markets for expressive produce. Armed with only an exacto-knife for carving and using basic materials such as black eyed peas (for the eyes) and organic dyes (for the mouths), they created the memorable characters that populate the pages of this book. Sure, the writing isn't the best, but that's part of its charm. I have to admire children for their frank, no-nonsense assessment of the world around them. The very young are not going to see any merit in literary brilliance, but instead will appreciate books that are silly, gaudy, or novel; three qualities undoubtedly found in How Are You Peeling?

    I'm pretty sure I bought this for my cousins as a thank-you gift for letting me stay with them for a time. It was probably when the book was published. I love this book--anything silly like this makes me smile. (Think the cupcake book and the Star Wars cookbooks.) But I like to play with my food and I'm glad others out there do, too. 1/25/12 A great storytime suggestion from my co-worker that was a much better choice than my previous "Squish Rabbit."

The text was way too small for me to be able to read in a storytime (since I didn't really have the days to practice as I had the others). Plus, I wasn't much of a fan of the text. This book was great to just get the kids answering questions about what they thought the produce was, or what expressions they thought were being made. My favorite was telling them to pick their favorite on the page and then make the face back at me. Ah me--that was one of the most entertaining books on my side!! The kids all seemed to have fun, too. And I think both kids and parents were impressed by the creativity and talent.

    My library copy had a page torn out so either somebody really liked it or a young child got their hands on it. I didn’t like it enough to borrow another copy to see what I missed. I was not wowed. The poem that made up the story was only so-so, and the photos of the fruits and vegetables made into faces with various expressions were not as inventive and attractive as others I’ve seen by this artist.

And as a vegan (especially when reading to vegan kids) it’s sufficiently laborious to describe the feelings food animals have without complicating the mix by reading about the supposed feelings of plant foods. Of course, if I’d really enjoyed this book this outlook would never have even occurred to me.

    This is one of the most moving and inspirational books I have ever had the privilege to read. "How Are You Peeling" made me take an objective look at my emotional state and helped me to realize that having different feelings all the time is okay - that's what life is all about! This book quenched my thirst for literature while giving me an unusual craving for turnips. This is one of the most moving and inspirational books I have ever had the privilege to read.

    This is a really good book and it was one of my favorites growing up. This book is basically focusing on the emotions that a child might be feeling. The book asks the reader if they are happy, sad, angry, lonely, confused, frustrated, etc. I think this book is really good when it come to children learning how to us recognize and express their emotions.

I would use this book in the hospital because it can help me understand how they are feeling because sometimes the do not always show their emotions. Sometimes it is hard for kids to put into words how they are feeling. What I would do is print a page that asks how are you peeling? on it and would have the veggies from the book and I would allow them to color it and express themselves. This is more comforting for them then talking to me about it.

    This book is very sentimental for me, because I've had this book since I was a child. This book is filled with rhyming fruits and vegetables, telling about different feelings you can have. The book is so creative and interesting to look at, and gives all kinds of feelings that people (or vegetables) can have. It helps young children interpret their own feelings and figure out their own emotions. I would use this book in a young elementary class to teach about different kinds of feelings.

    I thought this was such a cute way to talk about emotions. I used it with my older (4th/5th grade) CALS (Communication and Learning Support - mostly kids on the autism spectrum or other related disorders) kids and it seemed to be interesting enough to keep their attention while also being a good springboard for a discussion on emotions.

    Oh my goodness! The laughs and giggles this book caused made it worth the billion times my son read it in a matter of three weeks from its check out from our local library! It was on a list from my son’s kindergarten teacher for suggested readings. My little man has most definitely found a favorite! Thank you for the fun!

    this is an interesting and unique approach to illustrating a book. My toddler was mesmerised by the different faces. we definitely had a lot of conversation after reading this book. Will read over and over.

    Imagine going produce shopping with the folks behind these books. The fruit and veggie faces are laugh-out-loud funny and a joy to look at, and may inspire some readers to create their own produce creatures. The text, however, was instantly forgettable and just seemed to be a mail-in effort.
