In My Heart A Book of Feelings by Jo Witek

Many young children aren't good at expressing their feelings.  You can tell by their reactions what they are thinking but they don't verbalize it.  This is a good way to talk about how they feel.

Abramsappleseed sent me a copy of this book to review (thank you).  It has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

Christine Roussey did the illustrations for this book and it's die cut.  You can see through the hearts to the back of the book and each different color equals a different emotion.  The emotions can be big or small.  The illustrations are bright, and it's a fun read.

You can even use this as a vehicle to ask them when they feel that way.  What makes them feel bad or sad or mad?   What makes them happy?

The book is pretty and a joy to read.  Check it out; I bet you take home a copy.
