"How to recognise and respond to your feelings"
This beautifully illustrated hardback provides the perfect opportunity to start conversations with children about feelings. Written in a style to encourage a shared reading experience, this book provides a gentle way to help children recognise different feelings and the importance of sharing how they feel openly and honestly.
With 20 feelings covered there are plenty to discuss, not just the obvious but others, such as shy, bored, proud and lonely. Each feeling has its own section with themed illustrations, and real-world examples of how and why the feeling might be occur. All feelings are given equal importance and balance. For example, anger is discussed as being just as valid a feeling as happiness, the important thing is to recognise what sparks it and how you can best deal with it.
The simple, endearing illustrations are colourful and inviting, perfectly depicting the various feelings. They also show a diverse cast of characters, with a range of ethnicities, disabilities and body shape evident.
An excellent book to develop emotional literacy and provide children with the language they need to identify and discuss their emotions.
