Beginning-to-Read – Big Feelings by Mary Lindeen
This title is part of a series that helps children to recognize and respond to their emotions. Each entry is filled with photos of kids and adults who represent many races and whose photos illustrate the featured emotion. These photos add to the text.
In this entry, children are asked to think about what leads to their joyful feelings. The author acknowledges that the answer is different for different people, while also observing that no one feels joyful all the time. There are suggestions for a child might do to help them feel better at such moments.
This book can open the door to discussion with a child. Having access to books about many emotions will, the author believes, lead to social-emotional learning.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
