Extending this activity

    -As you read any fictional picture book, encourage your child to use the illustrations to infer the feelings of the characters. When you read the text on the page, check to see if her predictions were correct.

Adjust for an older child

Reverse the game by providing the facial expression and asking the child to come up with a sentence that would represent that emotion.

Adjust for a younger child
