It’s wise of us to help our kids use words to describe their feelings. It allows them to express themselves verbally instead of physically. It makes them feel empowered and understood. Feelings can be tricky, though. I believe most kids feel scared or sad before they were mad. Whether or not it appears my kids are identifying their feelings correctly, we celebrate the use of words in our home. These books have kept their interest and were great tools for conversation.
Here are seven children’s books about feelings.
- “The Color Monster” by Anna Llenas
- “Tough Guys Have Feelings Too” by Keith Negley
- “The Feelings Book” by Todd Parr
- “In My Heart” by Jo Witek
- “Glad Monster, Sad Monster” by Ed Emberley
- “Feelings” by Aliki
- “The Way I Feel” by Janan Cain
