Learning to trust and respond to your own emotions can be tricky for kids (and us parents, too). I’ve gathered up a few books to help you and your children understand and cope with what they’re feeling. I’ve written about a couple of these before, such as My Many Colored Days and Today I Feel Silly, you can read our thoughts on those here. We’ve also tried out a board to help children express their feelings in the classroom and at home, read all about that here.
