Emotions: From Birth to Old Age

Everyone experiences emotions every day. Some emotions are simple feelings about things that happen, such as excitement at a live concert. Others are more complicated, such as the mixture of joy and sadness we might feel when we change schools. This book shows how emotions are vital for human social behavior, being at the heart of our relationships with families, friends, and other groups, and how they affect the way we interact with the world around us.

Booklist - Abby Nolan

"This comprehensive entry into the Your Body for Life series looks at the concept of emotion (as opposed to a mood) and describes the variety of emotions typically felt from birth to death. The text is dry but surprisingly thorough; it even discusses dementia from the point of view of both the afflicted and the caregiver. Enhanced by useful charts and pertinent photos of everything from the toddler tantrum to the thrill-seeking daredevil, the text makes clear that emotions are greatly affected by biological and social changes that occur in normal human development. Spilsbury doesn’t neglect the difficulties of adults, either; you’ll find postpartum and other depressions, “bucket lists,” and midlife crises represented. Along the way, diverting anecdotes and research studies help lighten the mood (no pun intended) of this sensible introduction to a fascinating subject." - Booklist

School Library Journal, Series Made Simple - Carol S. Surges, formerly at Longfellow Middle School, Wauwatosa, WI

"These titles discuss the milestones, challenges, and concerns people experience as their bodies change throughout their lives. Each volume opens with a broad overview,  followed by five-to-seven chapters that begin with infancy and end with old age. The presentations are mostly balanced. For example, Nutrition touches upon health, eating disorders, and different kinds of diets, among many other topics. Color photographs, diagrams, and graphs illustrate the pages. “Amazing But True!” text boxes, sidebars, and captions add details and background information. Chapters conclude with a short recall quiz with answers. Either a supplementary spread of facts or a time line is appended along with suggestions of places to visit, extension ideas, and lists of print and web resources." - School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
