My Book Of Feelings by Nicola Edwards | Children's Book Review

I think it is very important to teach children about what their feelings mean, how to express them and how to understand them. No matter what age you are, your feelings are valid.


Blurb:

Does playing in the snow make you happy? Maybe you worry about visiting the dentist? Use the colourful emoji spinner and mirror to put a face to your feelings!

This interactive book helps you to navigate the world of emotions with your child. Explore a range of interesting and emotive topics together and delve into what feelings really mean.


Review:

This book is aimed at children between 3-5 but I wanted to review it for my 5 and 7 year olds because I thought it would be a great learning topic. My 7 year old is autistic and does struggle with emotions so it has been wonderful to have a visual to explain them.

The book starts by explaining emotions and you can twist the emoji spinner to see what those feelings look like. It doesn't just use language like "happy" and "sad", we also have synonyms like "joyful" and "disappointed".


As you work through the book, we have pages of questions relating to different subjects such as how different types of weather or different experiences make you feel. It is packed full of questions so it is really interactive. I would ask the questions and the children would either pull a face to convey the emotion or spin the spinner to show me. I love the little mirror at the end of the book where they are able to show the emotion that they currently feel and see what it looks like.



My Book Of Feelings is part of the Montessori-inspired 'My World' range so you can also buy 'The Touch Book', 'How Many Beads?' and 'ABC Nature'.

Thank you Little Tiger for our review copy.
