Two new titles in this lively series help young children recognize and understand their feelings, their actions, and how they are connected. Bella always needs to win—no matter what. At summer Fun Club, she gets mad whenever someone beats her in a game. When she struggles during a tent-making competition, Bella would rather give up than keep trying. Can she learn to do her best and feel good about it, even if she’s not the winner? With the help of the club leader, Bella discovers that she can make a tent, even if it’s not the best tent—and that being a good sport feels much better than being a sore loser.Our Emotions and Behavior series The Our Emotions and Behavior series uses cheerful brightly illustrated stories to help kids understand how their emotions and actions are related—and how they can learn to manage both. At the end of each book, a two-page series of pictures invites kids to tell a story in their own words. A special section for adults suggests discussion questions and ideas for guiding children to talk about their feelings.
