The Best Feelings Books for Kids
This blog uses affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.
If you were ever in my local grocery store when my kids were little, you know that kids can have BIG feelings. They often don’t know how to talk about how they are feeling, so the BIG feelings come pouring out in loud and tantrum-y ways. Encouraging kids to talk about how they feel, and validating that it’s okay for them to have these feelings, is a big start towards helping them deal with their emotions in a healthy way.
Our book list of feelings books for kids includes titles that are tried and true at our house. These stories and their characters make great conversation starters.
I can remember my mom reading Boy Was I Mad to me and my brother. It may be a hard one to find, but it is a wonderful book! All of these books deal with different feelings and different ways of dealing with them. Hopefully, there’s something for everyone here. If not, please share your suggestions with us.
