         [Amazon prices often change...your invoice will reflect the most recent.]

Happiness, sadness, bravery, anger, shyness...our hearts can feel so many feelings! Some make us feel as light as a balloon, others as heavy as an elephant.

With language that is lyrical but also direct, children will be empowered by this new vocabulary and able to practice articulating and identifying their own emotions. With whimsical illustrations and an irresistible die-cut heart that extends through each spread, this unique feelings book is gorgeously packaged. Color. Grades PreK-3. [10” x 10.5”...32 pages]

The Great Big Book of Feelings

by Mary Hoffman (2013, Frances Lincoln Ltd., 17.99/hardback)

The book opens with the question: "How are you feeling today?" And this leads on to a spread by spread presentation of a wide range of feelings, taken from the following: Happy, Sad, Excited, Bored, Interested, Embarrassed, Lonely, In need of solitude, Looking forward to something, Confused, Hurt, Scared, Relieved, Angry, Calm, Shy, Confident, Jealous, Worried, Amazed/Surprised, Lucky, Cheerful, and Playful. Brief text captions, questions, and plenty of humor make sure the book is fun, as well as dealing with a serious and important subject--human feelings. Color. Grades PreK-5.

How Do You Feel?

by Anthony Browne (2012, Candlewick Press, 14.99/hardback)
         [Amazon prices often change...your invoice will reflect the most recent.]

This deceptively simple book introduces an overalls-clad chimp who evokes a spectrum of emotions as he answers the titular question. Though the minimal text is forthright, Browne's pictures use body language and other cues to amplify each emotion. The chimp models 14 emotions and other feelings (like hungry and full) in total, all of which reappear in miniature on a final spread that asks readers directly how they feel, cementing the book's usefulness as a tool to both introduce emotions and encourage discussions of a child's feelings. Color. Grades PreK-3. [9” x 11”...32 pages]

Hurty Feelings

by Helen Lester (2004, Houghton Mifflin, 6.95)
         [Amazon prices often change...your invoice will reflect the most recent.]

Fragility, a hippopotamus, was a solid piece of work. But despite her sturdy exterior, Fragility was fragile. Anything and everything hurt her feelings. In the most benign compliment, Fragility heard an insult. No one could even say she looked nice without causing her to flop on the ground and weep. Fragility’s friends stopped speaking to her for fear of another fit. But Rudy, a very rude elephant, meets her on the soccer field, and things change for the better. Color. Grades K-3. [8.5” x 9.5”...32 pages]


by Peter Reynolds (2004, Candlewick Press, 14.00/hardback)
         [Amazon prices often change...your invoice will reflect the most recent.]

Drawing is what Ramon does. It's what makes him happy. In one split second, however, all that is changed. A single reckless remark by his older brother, Leon, turns Ramon's once carefree expressions into joyless struggles. Lucky for Ramon, his younger sister, Marisol, sees the world differently. She opens his eyes to something far more valuable than getting things just "right." Color. Grades 1-8. [8” x 7.5”...32 pages]

Feelings to Share

by Todd and Peggy Snow (2007, Maren Green Publishing, 9.99)
         [Amazon prices often change...your invoice will reflect the most recent.]

Feelings can be confusing when we don't have the words to express them; they can be overwhelming and even scary when we keep them to ourselves. In rhyming poems and engaging illustrations, this book helps children build and use a vocabulary for communicating their emotions. Because it's meant to be read aloud, it encourages discussion. From "A is for Awesome" to "Z is for Zany," Feelings invites kids to name, claim, and share their emotions. Color. Grades PreK-3. [8” x 8”...32 pages]

I Feel Sad

by Brian Moses (1999, Sundance Pub., 7.50)
         [Amazon prices often change...your invoice will reflect the most recent.]

This book discusses how sadness is sometimes caused by a dog getting sick, or parents arguing, or not being invited to a party, or when someone spoils a picture you paint at school. And, it points out how children can make other children sad—by calling them names, breaking their things, or saying mean things to them. The book ends: “If you feel sad, remember this—a frown is just a smile turned upside down.” Color. Grades K-3. [7.5” x 8”...32 pages]

by Brian Moses (1999, Sundance Pub., 7.50)
