Learning numbers and discovering emotions

Numbers and Emotions is a book for children from 18 months to 4 years old. The book’s author, Sandra Alonso, is a kindergarten teacher who has managed to bring two essential learning topics together in a single book: children learn the shape of the numbers and are introduced to ten different emotions. Using a gesture or idea for each emotion helps children to internalize and express them.

The book features numbers from one through ten, printed in low relief so children can use their fingers to follow the numbers’ shapes. Each number is matched with an emotion and a gesture or concept. It helps children to learn numbers by following their shape with their fingers and introduces them to up to ten different emotions. The text is written in UPPERCASE letters.

Since you can do a bit of theater as you tell it, gesturing the emotions, it is a fun story that can be used to explain feelings to little ones. The bright, block color backgrounds highlight the illustrations for young readers.

The book’s illustrator, Alicia Teba, has accompanied the text with fantastic and sweet illustrations that stand out against the colorful backgrounds.




Sara (costumer): “I really liked all the features of this children’s book. The fact that the numbers in this story are printed in low relief is a very good idea because the children can use their fingers to follow their shapes, repeat the movements and learn the emotions.”


Mi pizzarra educativa: “A cardboard story book aimed at children aged one year and older. With this book, children learn numbers by following their shapes with their fingers, and discover emotions that we usually feel in our day-to-day lives.”


Mis cuentos infantiles: “A cardboard children’s book written in capital letters that takes children on a journey through the numbers from 1 to 10 while matching each of them with a different emotion. Ten basic emotions such as joy, anger, surprise, love… ”
