It’s wonderful when children feel happy, brave, or loving, but what happens when they feel sad, bored, or angry? With adorable illustrations and just a few lines of text, My Sometimes Feelings explores all kinds of emotions and encourages children to express themselves in healthy ways.
“Sometimes I feel angry, I’m ready to shout!
I take some deep breaths till that feeling fades out.”
Written by an experienced mother and social worker, My Sometimes Feelings is perfect for use in the home and the classroom. When parents and teachers take the time to acknowledge and accept uncomfortable emotions, children feel loved, understood, and deeply connected to their caregivers… and a solid foundation for strong coping skills later in life. Feelings chart included.
