Spiffy Kids!! Storybook of Feelings Collection by J.R. Robinson - Book Review & Giveaway

Bookdepository Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Anniek

Emotions are something people live with every day. Sometimes they're Shy or Mad, but they can also feel Happy, Sad or Confident. In Spiffy Kids!! Storybook of Feelings Collection J.R. Robinson introduces all of the different Spiffy Kids. They're fun characters with plenty of humor and a lot to talk about. With the Spiffy Kids there's never a dull moment, since they can't wait to tell everyone about their feelings.

The Spiffy Kids are colorful cartoons. They are so much fun to look at and it's obvious immediately which feeling belongs to which Spiffy Kid. The Spiffy Kids all have their own rhyme, so they can tell us how they feel and what they're experiencing when they feel this way. The Spiffy Kids also explain to children what they can do to feel better or how to deal with their emotions. The beautiful drawings and bright colors are very appealing to them.

Spiffy Kids!! Storybook of Feelings Collection is a great book to help children understand and explain how they are feeling. I noticed that my son didn't always know how to tell me about his feelings. This made him get tantrums and he became frustrated when he couldn't make it clear what he meant. With the Spiffy Kids I found a fun and easy way to help him deal with his emotions. Children can easily relate to Mad, Happy, Sad, Shy, Worry and the other Spiffy Kids, since they're all so recognizable. My son and I absolutely love this wonderful book. The Spiffy Kids are sweet and adorable and I hope that there will be many more stories about them.


If you like to teach children about emotions or would like to help them express themselves, Spiffy Kids!! Storybook of Feelings Collection would be a perfect choice.

Happy Spiffy

About J.R. Robinson

Hi! My name is J. R. Robinson, and I am the author of Theodore Roberts & the Key to the Imaginary Door.

The power of the human imagination is awe-inspiring. It is the place where all things are possible, there are no limitations – dreams can come true. This is where my world is, a place where I can conjure up anything and create a story. I myself have been writing since I was very young, constantly scribbling stories on any piece of paper I could find. Filling notebook after notebook with story after story. Were all of them good – heck no, most of them didn’t even make it past the first paragraph. Yet, just the exploration of the ideas that flowed from my imagination was enough for me to pick up that pen every day, to put that pen to paper and to let out my craziest ideas. Until a story just kept flowing from its beginning to its end. As for my expectations as an author, I hope for one thing – to get kids excited about their imaginations!

To show that even as an adult we don’t need to put away our childlike magic once we reach a certain age. That it is possible to keep that wondrous curiosity for a lifetime. Children are so full of life, the possibilities for them are endless if they can tap into their hopes and dreams. Yet they need help sometimes, they need adults who come forth to tell, and to show, how amazing their imaginations can truly be.

So to sum it up – Yes, I still believe in the magic of Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny. I giggle with glee when I hear a person say that “anything is possible” – because with your imagination “ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!”

Believe in yourself, because that imagination you hold inside of you is capable of accomplishing anything, if you only believe.

On a personal note, I live in California with my epic husband, my rock star daughter and my crazy puppy.
