Your feelings are important
And they change every day.
You feel emotions all the time,
And your emotions are okay!
In this emotions book for kids, a young boy goes through his day and feels a lot of feelings, from worried to excited, frustrated to silly. Rather than push his emotions away, his mom encourages him to feel what he’s feeling . . . and then helps him move on with his day!
With vibrant illustrations and sing-song language designed to be a repetitive book for toddlers and early readers, What I’m Feeling Is Okay! is a great first book about feelings.
This book is the perfect social emotional learning resource for teachers, preschool curriculum, or to supplement distance-learning. As a bonus, it also includes six fun activities for exploring emotions with the little ones in your life!
About the Author: Laura Shiff has been an elementary school teacher, tutor, daycare worker, and nanny—so she knows a thing or two about children’s emotions. She lives in Minneapolis, where she likes to play with her two young sons, go on walks with her Lab puppy, and try new restaurants with her husband. All these boys may drive her cuckoo sometimes, and feeling cuckoo is okay.
About the Illustrator: Bev Johnson is an illustrator and character designer living in California. She loves reading, music, and cats. Drawing makes her the happiest, and feeling happy is okay.
