A good introductory book about feelings for children, in a story kids can relate too. Strong, scared, stupid, lazy, pokey, and many other are explored. From the introduction "A beginning book about feelings provides a natural introduction to the subjective sensations, reactions, and emotions that all people experience. If at an early age children understand that feelings are important and can be expressed in words, this may help in learning to live in our stressful world." The book encourages interaction, and when reading with children, they will often vocalize when they felt that exact way. Great way to open up conversations when having to deal with a difficult feeling.
