One day I was talking with Marcia Goldman author of the Lola, the Therapy Dog books and she was telling me about her dogs, Lola and Zeke. She was describing to me how expressive Lola’s face is and how Zeke has pretty much just one expression. That’s why Lola is the star.
I said that would make a great social skills book; a book that would explain facial expressions and their importance to kids. Just a few days later she sent me this as a birthday gift. What a good friend!
ZEKE LEARNS FACIAL EXPRESSIONS
This is my brother Zeke
Zeke has trouble making facial expressions.
Whether he is happy or sad, Zeke has one face.
This is my happy face,
and this is my sad face.
I can look angry,
or I can look grumpy.
I let people know that I am sleepy with this face,
or confused with this one.
Sometimes Zeke makes a silly face,
but no matter what Zeke is feeling, he just shows this face.
There are a lot of emotions that we can show with our facial expressions.
Sometimes I feel bored
or shy. Can you tell from my face?
But my favorite face is my happy one!
Zeke has been practicing,
and now he can smile and show his happy face, too.
Learn more about Zeke in this latest addition to the Lola Book Series.
