Synopsis

Masterworks of contemporary art teach kids about feelings and how they can be expressed in art.

The bold work of contemporary artists, including Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, and Alex Katz is totally accessible to small children, and in this gorgeous, ground-breaking picture book, these works of art speak to children about emotions.  

Children will recognize love, surprise, hurt, and other powerful feelings in these images, which accompany a fun-to-read aloud narrative with a silly twist at the end that is sure to delight younger readers.

Parents can enjoy the art as well as the opportunity to engage their children in a light-hearted discussion of feelings and how they affect us—the beginnings of emotional intelligence.

" Pictures by contemporary artists and a wacky sense of humor make for an amusing read."
-Parents Magazine

"Helping children do the important work of learning to name their feelings, while distracted by awe-inspiring visuals from top-tier contemporary artists including Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, Yoshitomo Nara, Damien Hirst, and more."
—Beata Bliss Lewis, M.D., Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, NYU
 
“Chani Sanchez has written a beautiful book combining the basic feelings of happy, sad, surprised, angry, and lonely with magical pieces of art to make these feelings come alive. There Are NO Animals in This Book (Only Feelings) is a funny and entertaining way to look at art. Kids will love it and so will parents
—Julie Appel, author of the Touch the Art series

"I can't think of a better idea than matching contemporary artworks with a children's story. Anything that makes children look and think about art as well as encouraging learning must be applauded, especially when it's done in a manner which is both fun and instructive."
— James Stourton, former Chairman of Sotheby's UK, and author of Great Collectors of Our Time: Art Collecting Since 1945.

"Inventive and fun!"
—Rupert Everett, actor and art collector.
