Children’s books about feelings

by | Apr 2, 2020 | Book Recommendations, Communications, COVID-19 Resources, Education

Rebecca Ryder, MA, NCC, LPCC-S, Assistant Regional Program Director recommends two children’s books to help you better manage your child’s emotions.

The Way I Feel“, by Janan Cain, and “Today I Feel Silly & Other Moods that Make My Day,” by Jamie Lee Curtis, are two beautiful picture books that focus on general emotions and how they can change throughout the day. These books would be helpful for parents and kids to read together. The stories and pictures give readers an opportunity to connect and validate that we all have emotions. The books also help generate discussion about what emotions your children are currently having.

Happy reading!
