What Am I Feeling? held my children's attention as I read it and they liked the cute pictures. We talked a little about emotions and the book's message. It's not a book they want to read daily, but they pick it up sometimes.

The concepts of (1) naming a feeling, (2) asking God for help with it, and (3) not letting the emotion control your actions are good lessons. Really good lessons, that both children and adults (myself included) need to remember.

In the story, several children experience emoti

Feelings are just that, feelings, they seem real to the person experiencing them, especially at the time, but they really have no control other than that which we give them. In What Am I Feeling? By Dr. Josh and Christi Straub, illustrated by Jane Butler (B&H Kids, 2019), Sam and his friends learn about feelings, what they are and how to handle them.
Sam is afraid to share in front of the class, Hudson is happy, Alex gets angry, Sophie is sad and Jennie is jealous. Together the class learns

This is a great book for kids on identifying their feelings and realizing that their feelings don't need to control them. It includes a pull-out feelings chart. Sam has butterflies in his stomach and is afraid to go to school. His dad helps him by saying, “Sam, what you feel matters, but it doesn't have to control you. Giving each feeling a name helps you know what to do with it.” He then tells him “a feeling is just a feeling. It's not in charge of you. If you feel afraid, take a deep breath, n ...more

Emotions can be uncharted territory for children, but it's of utmost importance for parents and other adults in a child's life to teach them how to handle emotions appropriately. By creating a safe environment, we can set our kids up for future success in this area.
I tend to struggle with the balance between empathy and toughness with my children's emotions. This book provided both me and my kids with a script for how to deal with big feelings. Now, when situations arise, we work through the sc

In the age of emotional intelligence, and the increasing awareness of the benefits of talking about and helping young children work through emotions, this is a necessary book. Written from a Christian perspective, beautifully illustrated, and relateable for young children. This book is a perfect way to start engaging small children in discussions about emotions and ways they can work through them. My preschooler especially loved the feelings chart

What Am I Feeling? by Dr. Josh and Christi Straub is such a wonderful resource for kids of all ages! My 6 and 2 year old boys both enjoyed listening to this book and were so excited to see the pull-out chart at the end of the book! I love the simplicity of the illustrations and the bright and cohesive color scheme of the book! I appreciate the range of emotions discussed in the book, and that there are extras we can discuss as a family in the included chart. The repeated lines, “a feeling is jus ...more
