A Whole Bunch of Feelings
Emotional literacy is as necessary as learning the ABCs. If your young child is unable to identify and manage his own emotions, or if he doesn’t understand others’ emotions, then successful relationships will never happen. A Whole Bunch of Feelings will help give your child the language of feelings and offers suggestions on how to manage them.
Each of the 44 feelings is explored on a colorful two-page spread with a descriptive paragraph your child can relate to. Research shows that for little ones, picture books offer an additional tool for teaching emotional literacy because the illustrations serve as visual context clues. A Whole Bunch of Feelings accomplishes this beautifully.

“A Whole Bunch of Feelings is a beautiful book for your library collection, and I would definitely recommend it for all families. The more we understand and accept all of these big feelings, the easier life is to process and muddle through.”Read the Review

“Besides the fact that it was the first book my tot bothered to stop and listen to for once, it taught him (and continues to teach him) all about his feelings and explains the different kinds of feelings he can and will feel.”Read the Review
This book is great to teach emotions and feelings! We like to read the entries and talk about them! My three year old now regularly says things like, I was in bed and I was soooo cozy all night! Haha teaching emotions and feelings means teaching them how to recognize, communicate and deal with those feelings.
A good book to help kids understand feelings.
Great read aloud to help kids learn about their emotions and how to deal with them.
My kids love reading but this book came as a bit of a surprise to me. They LOVE it and actually request to read it which is strange to me since it's a medley of different children and only a paragraph expressing how they feel. Maybe it's because it shows emotions as an okay thing and how to deal with them or, even more likely, the adorable kid pictures that they enjoy. Either way, I'm glad they like it so much and that it's fun, rather than a chore to read.
Have a little one that's been having trouble expressing their feelings and this book seemed to be helping.
