Reviewed by Kelly Santana for Readers' Favorite Yell and Shout, Cry and Pout: A Kid’s Guide to Feelings by Peggy Kruger Tietz, Ph.D. is invaluable educational reading. As the title suggests, the book discusses eight of our emotions in a friendly and easy way: anger, fear, shame, sadness, happiness, love, disgust, and surprise. The book is meant to help children understand and learn to verbalize their feelings, and to assist parents and guardians in guiding them. Feelings are universal and can be recognized by certain attitudes. When one is angry, one may shout. When one is fearful, one may shake, run or hide. When one is ashamed, one may look away. When one is sad, one may cry. When one is happy, one may laugh and giggle. When one is loved, one cares and wants to help. When one is disgusted, one may cringe and cover the eyes. When one is surprised, one may jump and scream. The book is completed with illustrations and examples of what triggers those feelings, reactions from the person expressing them and the psychological meaning behind those emotions. It also gives tips to parents, caregivers and teachers in how to use this tool.   Yell and Shout, Cry and Pout: A Kid’s Guide to Feelings by Peggy Kruger Tietz, Ph.D is a delightful book. I loved everything about it, from the illustrations to the content. Identifying certain feelings can be hard for children of different age groups. Dr. Tietz nails it when she gives simple, real life examples to assist children in grasping those concepts. The reading got even more fun when she rhymes the explanations and fills it with relatable illustrations. Yell and Shout, Cry and Pout: A Kid’s Guide to Feelings allows for young readers, parents, and educators to win in multiple ways. Children have fun mimicking the characters, building vocabulary and setting up the foundation for self-awareness. Parents have an interactive tool to discuss with their child. Teachers can make the most out of it through reading, classroom discussion, and building a strong community of learners. I certainly recommend it.

So I wasnt sure what to really expect when I started reading this. But I found it to be a great book. I read it a couple times and I found this book amazing. I have 4 young boys and explaining feelings is something that is not very easy. It is broken down into each feeling. For each feeling there is a little story, some illustrations and other ways/reasons we have the feelings. This book is perfect for helping young kids understand emotion. It also is great for parents also. This book helps parents explain what emotions are and ways to deal with theem to their chldren. It also gives examples of different ways you feel every emotion. It is something that is very benefical to read and share with you children!
