I'm Happy-Sad Today
This wise and friendly picture book helps young children make sense of mixed-up emotions.
Emotional Intelligence, Self-Awareness and Self-Knowledge, Charming Pictures, Practical Coping Strategies for Children
Topics and Themes:
Feelings, Appropriate Behaviours
Happy and also sad. Excited but nervous too. Feeling friendly, with a little shyness mixed in.
Mixed feelings are natural, but they can be confusing. There are different kinds of happy―the quiet kind and the noisy, giggly, jump and run kind. And there are conflicting feelings, like proud and jealous, frustrated and determined.
A special section for adults presents ideas for helping children explore their emotions, build a vocabulary of feeling words, know what to do if they feel overwhelmed, and more.
