The Dealing with Feelings series is designed to give voice to what’s brewing inside, showing children how to name their emotions as they also learn to read. Colorful stickers are included in each book.
Includes five books:
《This Makes Me Jealous》
In This Makes Me Jealous, a young girl is proud of being the star athlete at her school. But when a new kid moves to town and she suddenly has to share the spotlight, jealousy gets the best of her. After a tough soccer matchup, the girl’s gym teacher helps her to empathize with the new student and give her a chance. Soon, the girl learns that making new friends and being inclusive are more important than being the best.
《This Makes Me Scared》
In This Makes Me Scared, a young boy is terrified about taking swim lessons. The water is cold, chlorine burns his eyes, and worst of all, everyone is watching him. He’s scared that he’ll never learn to swim–or drown trying! When his instructor shows him how to calm his mind, the boy decides to face his fear and open himself up to a fun, new experience.
《This Makes Me Silly》
In This Makes Me Silly, a little girl and her brother go with their family to the zoo, only to find that they can’t stop laughing! Between making funny monkey faces and stretching their arms for elephant trunks, it’s no wonder they snort out their milk at lunch. The little girl doesn’t see any harm in her silliness at first, but when she scares an animal by shouting and banging on the glass, she learns that there’s a time and place to be silly (like at the zoo playground), and a time and place to be calm (when animals are sleeping).
《This Makes Me Sad》
If feeling blue isn’t bad enough, it’s even worse without your best furry friend. This Makes Me Sad follows a young boy after he accidentally lets his dog, Kit, loose from the yard. Despite his parents’ attempt to find her, nothing can cheer up the boy. His favorite things, like a pretty sunset, going to the park, and his beloved teddy bear, just make him more sad. Even happy memories of Kit no longer feel good. With help from his family, the boy must learn to accept and express how he’s feeling inside. And by dealing with his feelings, he might just be able to do some good until Kit comes home.
《This Makes Me Happy 》
This Makes me Happy follows a young girl on a field trip to the fair, complete with a roller coaster, pie-eating contest, and petting zoo! But when her pesky nut allergy keeps her from having a treat with her class, the girl learns that even the happiest of days can have unhappy moments. By reflecting on her trip and recognizing the many feelings that arose during it, she is able to feel less overwhelmed—and more confident about her positively happy day.
