We recently received a review copy of the new book written by Gabi Garcia and illustrated by Ying Hui Tan.
The book is nicely illustrated, with colorful and detailed character sketches. This is wonderful for children listening to the book to be able to pay attention to the character’s facial expressions and emotions. The story is really more like a guide to helping kids understand what they are physically experiencing (example with anger you may feel warm) connected to a feeling. If we can become more mindful of our feelings and our body’s reaction to those feelings, we can react in healthy ways.
The book is designed for preschool and elementary aged children but the length is too long. I would suggest reading it over the course of several bedtimes.
