Overview

Help little kids learn to manage big feelings!

It’s show-and-tell day at school, and Sam and his friends are feeling lots of emotions. He wonders why he feels flippy in his tummy. And why is Alex stomping his feet? And does Hudson usually have such a big grin?

After several unchecked feelings threaten to ruin the big day, Sam and his friends start to learn how to give each emotion a name and ask God to help them remember that “a feeling is just a feeling—it’s not in charge of you.” In a world where kids are dealing with everything from sibling rivalry to bullying, divorce to tragedy, What Am I Feeling? offers a biblically grounded way for children to verbalize their feelings, develop empathy and self-control, and understand their wonderful God-given emotions.

BONUS! Also includes a pull-out feelings chart for your wall!

Read an Excerpt

CHAPTER 1

Everybody knows that Sam likes to smile. He has the best jokes, likes riding his bike, and loves his dog, Copper.

But one day before school, Dad Notices Sam hunched over his Cereal. "How are you feeling, son?"

"I'm fine. I just don't want to go to school," Sam said softly. "I feel flippy in my tummy."

"It sounds like you're feeling afraid," said Dad.

"I don't know what I'm feeling," replied Sam.

"Sam, what you feel matters, but it doesn't have to control you. Giving each feeling a name helps you know what to do with it."

"Time for school, Sam!" Mom called. "It's dress-up day! Come get your costume on. And don't forget, today is your turn for show and tell!"

Sam wasn't so sure about show and tell.

"Remember," his dad said, "a feeling is just a feeling. It's not in charge of you. If you feel afraid, take a deep breath, name your feeling, and ask God to help you with it."

When he walked into Mrs. Stewart's class, Sam felt Flippy in his tummy. He felt stuffy in his head. He didn't Want to talk. His cheeks felt hot and red.

"Hi, Sam!" said his best friend, Hudson.

"Hi, Hudson. I like your costume," Sam said quietly.

"Isn't it awesome? Astronauts are my favorite!"

"I'm so happy today," Hudson said excitedly. Sam noticed that Hudson's feet were almost dancing and his mouth was one big grin.

Sam then saw Alex in the block corner.

"I'm a pirate," Alex bragged, "and I'm building the biggest pirate ship in the world! Ahoy, matey!"

"Opps! Sorry, Alex!" Hudson said quickly as he zoomed off again.
