Like the note at the end of the book says, trying to label emotions as bad is not healthy. We tend to ignore what we cannot see and emotions are the big ones in that category. Having such a book early on can curb mental and emotional issues later in life. The perfect seed for a happy mind!
The writing is catchy, the fonts and background reflect the emotions, and illustrations make them pop up out. Absolutely phenomenal work. Highly recommended to new parents and daycares/preschools.
I have a degree in child development and really enjoy this book for my son and would definitely recommend it to other parents. It’s a wonderful resource for kids to label all those emotions they feel when sometimes they don’t know what’s going on in their little bodies. It explains feelings so well and let’s kids know it’s okay to feel different feelings all throughout the day. My 5 year old son loves reading it before bedtime and when we get to the end he always asks me “how do you feel, mom?” And then he makes me point to one of the beautiful illustrations of the feelings, and he points to the happy face and says he’s happy! Get this book, it’s great!
My two year old really enjoys this book. It's not his usual reading subject since he's more of a cars and trucks kind of kid, but he really took a liking to this book, and has requested it multiple times a day for weeks! He now has it pretty well memorized and will sometimes quote the rhymes when he's feeling mad, silly, etc. Great children's book :)
This is a must have book for a classroom library! I’m excited to share it with my 1st graders this year- although it would work in any grade. The questions posed in the book open up for student sharing and discussions about feelings as well as what we can do when we feel emotions. I love how it helps the reader connect to their emotions and reminds us we all feel lots of emotions everyday. I also love that it uses the phrase “Do you ever feel.....?”, reminding the reader that who we are is separate from what we feel. (There is a big difference between “I feel angry” vs “I am angry”). The illustrations are wonderful and engaging as well!
Darling book helping kids identify their feelings and know they are not alone. I feel our society is really working towards teaching kids that it’s okay to feel how you feel but you are completely responsible for how you act regarding your feelings. This book gets that message out loud and clear and I appreciated the comments at the end from the psychologist. The illustrations are so entertaining and well done.
Loved this children’s book about feelings. Read it to my girls and they enjoyed going over all of the different types of feelings. My four year old did not know what the word embarrassed meant, so it was a good learning opportunity.
The pictures are cute and the book is accessible to many ages. I appreciate at the end it talks about how we might shift through various feelings throughout the day and we have a choice on how to respond.
This book is so great for helping my boys name big feelings!! It’s especially helpful for my kiddo who is high functioning autistic and has such a hard time parsing out and grasping the big ideas behind feelings. It breaks them down and names familiar feelings in a beautiful way. Definitely recommend!!
This book is for every single home with kids. It speaks to all the feelings children experience and helps them understand that it's ok to feel that way...It has really helped my 3yr old and 7yr old in expressing how they feel. What I love the most is the illustrations ... There is a black girl with pigtails, a white girl with a ponytail etc. Every kid in every race is included and that is something special to me.
