Author: Cornelia Maude Spelman. Tags: feelings, scared. Perfect book for the beginning of kindergarten when students are feeling scared or anxious about being away from their parents. I would want my students to know that it is alright to feel those things and to talk about those feelings. That way the class can work together to fix the problem.
A good enough series. It held my 4 year olds interest and he identified well with it, nodding his head as we read along. We also read When I Care about Others, which is probably even better, as it explains empathy, a very timely concept to understand for 3-4 year olds ...

Recommends it for: therapists, children, parents to teach children about feelings
Shelves: therapy, feelings
First time I've read a book in this series and I really liked it. The pictures are cute and it teaches good concepts to children. As a social worker/therapist, it was fun to see that this was written by a social worker. I look forward to reading other books in this series.

I've been collecting all these Cornelia Spelman books about feelings for the library. They are good for guidance class or other classroom discussions with younger students about dealing with feelings appropriately (or even identifying feelings).

This book helps children to understand what they are feeling and discover ways to cope with those feelings that are appropriate. Great for young children.

This series of "feel" books are helpful to children and their parents as they explore and come to understand different emotions.
