In My Heart: A Book of Feelings
I love how this book explores a range of emotions like happiness, sadness, bravery, anger, shyness, fear and many more, through a girl expressing that her heart is full of feelings. â€œSome days my heart feels as heavy as an elephant. There's a dark cloud over my head and tears fall like rain. This is when my heart is sad.â€
The way the character talks about her feelings is very engaging, especially through the colourful and fun illustrations and the heart cut-outs in each page. Toddlers can be empowered by this book and learn to identify their emotions and to express them through their words rather than through tantrums. Great for both genders and helps them understand the emotions they experience on a daily basis- it encourages children to celebrate the positive feelings like joy and conquer the negative ones like anger in a healthy way!
Discuss with your child about all the different kinds of emotions- when has your child felt sad? Happy? Angry?
