I really love a book that helps children understand emotions they may feel or ones that others may feel, and this book does that beautifully!
This is the fourth book in the children’s series The Super Fun Day Books, and I have to recommend not only this book, but all of them. They each feature a child and a fear or emotion to understand and work through!
This was an adorable story where we meet Olive, a little boy who is scared of the Valentine’s Day celebrations at school. He’s got it in his head that he’ll have to get married at this party, and he wants NOTHING to do with that! Olive’s mom helps him understand what Valentine’s Day is all about, LOVE, not getting married through a fun story!
I am always on the lookout for ways to help my kiddos handle their anger. It’s hard for them (and for me) to know what to do when anger shows up. Finding books on the emotion is amazing! We have a little stack of books that we use as tools when someone is starting to feel mad or angry, and we can go sit and read them and remember ways to help handle the feeling!
Sometimes When I’m Mad is a great children’s book that helps children manage their feelings of anger. This is definitely a book that will be helpful to any child.
Emotions are hard for adults to handle, and for children, it definitely not any easier. I am always looking for books that can help my kids learn about why they feel the things they feel and how they can handle those emotions.
Sometimes When I’m Sad is a children’s book that focuses on feeling sad. I think that every child can benefit from this book. It helps kids understand that feeling sad is okay, and that it’s okay to talk to others about those feelings.
George J. and the Miserable Monday is a wonderful children’s book that discusses how Mondays can be hard for kids too!
I really enjoyed that this story shows children how other kids may have the same worries and fears they do. George is easy to relate to, and I think he can be a great support for children! The story was easy to understand and is something that kids will enjoy reading again and again!
Kayla is such a special little girl. She is body-positive, friendly, family-centric, and all-around just lovely. In the third book in this series, Kayla considers how people view themselves. Their hair, skin, scars, and everything else. I love that she considers these things, but ultimately decides that those are the things that make us special.
Kayla has such a special message for young readers through this story, and I truly hope that it finds its way into every little reader’s hands. Reinforcing the importance of self-love is so important, and I’m so happy to see it written so strongly in this story. My daughter and I will be reading this again and again!
Kayla is at it again! In this book in the series, she becomes friends with a little boy that needs some support. I really love that this book features mental health, and shows what types of support we can offer people that need help.
Kayla is a great role model throughout this story, and I think that children everywhere can relate to her and her friend. They can also learn so much from them! My daughter enjoyed this book, and I think that children ages pre-school through middle elementary will enjoy this as well!
Kayla is such a wonderful little girl. She has a loving mother who supports her and helps her see how special she is. I love the focus on family in this book. We really see what a lovely relationship Kayla and her mother have!
This is a story that so many children will love. It’s easy to connect with Kayla and for children to see themselves in her story. There is a great message about finding out who you want to be and pursuing that, as well as a wonderful reminder to enjoy your time together as a family! The illustrations are quite lovely, and my daughter absolutely enjoyed them!
This book. I have nothing but love for this! What an absolutely fabulous way to help children with their feelings! The message is positive, encouraging, and understanding of children and their feelings! I love that it makes children feel like they are in a safe space to express and understand their emotions.
This was a wonderfully interactive story, which asks the children to participate in different ways. We have some seek and find activity, but also some really great actions for self-love. My daughter really enjoyed interacting with Piggie!
Bullying is such a sad, real thing for children. This book tackles this mean, hurtful thing with a wonderful story that helps children understand what bullying is, and what they should do when it happens.
Max is so excited to start school, but when a bully starts calling him “elephant ears”, he doesn’t know what to do. His friends don’t know what to do either, and Max feels very alone. When one friend stands up to the bully, it helps Max stand up to him too.
The illustrations throughout Yummy Me Feels So Good are children’s artwork. My daughter really enjoyed looking at each page and discussing the drawing. It was a lot of fun and a great addition to the book!
How I Felt:
Yummy Me Feels So Good has a great message for children, and adults really, about the different “Me’s” that we experience. They are all a part of who we are, and we can embrace them.
