This super-useful book is packed with helpful hints, tips, and techniques showing children how to recognize and express their emotions. Feelings can be tricky, so My Mixed Emotions in partnership with Place2Be is here to coach children through a variety of situations including dealing with bullying, grief, and how to cope if your family splits up.
Divided into happiness, fear, anger, and sadness, My Mixed Emotions explores the four main emotions, the reasons why we feel them, and the science behind each one. Children will discover great things about themselves, such as what happens in their brain when they are happy, why they cry when they are sad, and why they sometimes feel nervous.
My Mixed Emotions will become a friend and guide as children travel through the mixed-up world of emotions to discover the wonderful, unique person that they are.
This is an excellent way to help manage one of the hardest aspects of childhood, and it’s a book to keep alongside you for many years (Parents in Touch)
Emotions can sometimes be scary for younger ones. This book teaches kids aged six to ten
about why they feel the way they do. They will learn what basic emotions such as happy, angry, afraid and sad mean. Lots of colour, cartoons and honesty. (The Sun)
An incredibly good choice for anyone who wants to explore different feelings with a child… It’s a good non-fiction book that teachers can easily use from year R to year 6, and parents can use it to talk and help their own child to understand what they, or their friends, may be feeling and why. I would definitely recommend this book for boys or girls from 5 – 12. It’s bright, colourful and informative; perfect for the mental well being of a child and their adult! (Adult Toppsta)
