Shaarav is a pre-schooler with very big and strong feelings. He feels different emotions very strongly, be it happiness or anger. So very early, when he was barely a toddler we felt it was time for us to introduce him to labelling his emotions because we very well understand that identifying and labelling feelings is a vital skill that takes lots of practice. And it is very important for a child to recognize and name feelings for developing social-emotional skills. And at the time we found this book “My Feelings” very appropriate to get him acquainted with the basic human emotions.
What’s the story?
“My Feelings” does share any story as such. it has some snippets and actions that we do or should do when we feel a particular feeling.
What did we like about it?
The illustrations in “My Feelings” are very beautiful and apt and easily draw a child’s attention. The book tries to introduce emotions to a child with minimal text and easy to grasp language. What we particular liked about the book is that it also points out some coping mechanisms if a child is feeling scared or shy.

What’s there for the child to learn?
