Feelings are hard to understand and even harder to identify for some children and even some adults. Books like this are invaluable to help children learn early about their feelings and help learn how to deal with those negative emotions. The illustrations are beautiful and the vibrant colours will be sure to catch children’s attention. The writing was great, the flow almost poet in nature. The message. Is clear and useful. All in all a great book. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
After working with children on behavior issues that stem from their emotions (I am mad so I threw a temper), I realize how important this issue is to teaching children this point. How you feel is temporary and though it is okay to feel how you feel, you ultimately choose to hold on to anger or sadness if it goes on to disrupt your life or more importantly, your outlook on life. This book is an excellent tool in my toolbox in working with these kids! I love this and though eventually, most children (but definitely not all) do grasp this concept on their own, the earlier they realize the power they own, the happier they can live.
