Do you have a feeling that's visiting today? Can you open your door and invite it to play? Visiting Feelings encourages children to treat their feelings like guests welcome them in, get to know them, and perhaps learn why they are visiting. Through this purposeful and mindful exploration, Visiting Feelings harnesses a young child's innate capacity to fully experience the present moment and invites children to sense, explore, and befriend all of their feelings with acceptance and equanimity. A Note to Parents provides more information about emotional awareness and mindfulness, plus practical advice and activities for introducing mindfulness into daily family routine.

Visiting Feelings combines drawings that are touching with meaningful words that rhyme along with subtle encouragement of our embracing the soft space in our hearts and beings. It is extraordinarily pshcyotherapeutic for persons of any age.
This is a beautifully illustrated book that opens space for awareness of and conversations about emotions. I found it at the library and liked it so much that I decided to get it for my own library.
