Happy Sad Feeling Glad
Happy, Sad, Feeling Glad
Happy, Sad, Feeling Glad is a lovely book that not only explains some of the many emotions your kindergartner may feel, but it also encourages him to put pencil to paper and help the animals explore their feelings, too. Dog and Cat are scared; draw what might be frightening them. By participating in the animals’ stories, your child’s own emotions are explored in an insightful and sensitive way. Lively and full of humor, with relatable vignettes, Happy, Sad, Feeling Glad will help your child better understand and express his own feelings.

I didn’t dislike this but I’m not raving about it either--every page or two has a prompt for the child to create something around (Dog is sad he dropped his ice cream, draw dog a new ice cream), it was good for a simple activity that he could work on independently but I don’t know how much of the emotional intelligence he got out of it.
My son isn’t super huge on coloring etc, but he loved this book, and helping the animals! A great book to process emotions and outcomes!
Fun book that allowed my daughter to be creative and us to be able to have some good discussions about emotions.
This book discusses emotions and allows children to incorporate art with it. Great book!
I am trying to focus this year on expanding my son's love for drawing as well work on emotions. This book has been perfect for reinforcing these things. We are having fun talking through the pages together.
