This series of When I’m feeling... was recommended by social worker with a major in psychology for five year old son with global delay and ASD. This is to help with the theory of mind, to read other people’s body language if they are happy, sad or jealous; particularly to help son or individual to recognise their emotions and feelings, with guides to make them feel better (sad/angry)or extend the feeling (happy).

There’s something about me and sad bunnies. A bunny just seems to be able to convey sadness more than any other cartoon animal. The presence of a bunny character in When I’m Feeling Sad alone doesn’t make it a winner, but it certainly helps.

Seeing as I’ve spent a good portion of my life feeling sad, I found this to be a wonderful book. It validates children’s feelings and tells them that it’s OK to feel sad. This is a tremendously important aspect; emotions are messy things and our culture activ

I bought this book for my son, who at the tender age of 8 is suffering from depression.
I read it to him, and at first he wasn't to keen on it as it begins by going through how it feels to be sad, and what things can make you sad. Then it begins to discuss how feeling sad is ok and normal and that everyone feels sad sometimes. Then there are tips on how to cope with feeling sad, and how to help yourself to feel better.
After I read it to him once, he made me read it again, then he wanted to read

This book describes the emotion 'sad' and reasons as to why someone may feel sad. It relates to real life situations where the rabbit is sad, because their mummy and daddy are fighting and because the rabbit is feeling lonely, towards the end it states solutions how to overcome these feelings.
This book is primarily for the key stage 1 and the early years however it can also be implemented with in key stage 2.
It can be read to children who are feeling sad and emotional.

I just bought this book and 3 others like it. I really like how they explain to my son about what it means to be scared, sad, angry, and happy. Then it talks about how to deal with these feelings and that it's okay to feel this way sometimes. It does so without being to complicated.

This is a great little series of picture books that talk about different emotions (there are ones on sad, happy, scared, and angry). My two year loves these and it has made it easier to talk about different emotions and how to best deal with them.
