A picture book for children aged 5+ who struggle to understand and manage their emotions
Tracey Ross is a parent and this book has come about as a result of her everyday experiences with her birth and adopted children, and parenting a child with special needs including Alcohol Related Neurological Development Disorder and Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Many children struggle with the concept of feelings, where they come from and what to do with them, especially children from traumatic backgrounds. My Book of Feelings provides simple, straight forward explanations to the complex world of feelings. It is a great interactive book for parents and practitioners alike to help children express themselves and find ways of dealing with big feelings. -- Shona Lawson, Adoption Social Worker Amazing. This book explores an array of feelings using easy-to-understand language and visuals, and it provides a range of helpful strategies to support these feelings. We particularly like the personalised section at the end of the book - a chance for children to explore their own feelings and record the strategies that best support their own individual needs. A must for any parent or provider working with young children. -- Langenhoe Community Primary School, UK
