Your feelings are important

And they change every day.

You feel emotions all the time,

And your emotions are okay!

In this emotions book for kids, a young boy goes through his day and feels a lot of feelings, from worried to excited, frustrated to silly. Rather than push his emotions away, his mom encourages him to feel what he's feeling . . . and then helps him move on with his day!

With vibrant illustrations and singsong language designed to be a repetitive book for toddlers and early readers, What I'm Feeling Is Okay! is a great first book about feelings.

This book is the perfect social emotional learning resource for teachers, preschool curriculum, or to supplement distance-learning. As a bonus, it also includes six fun activities for exploring emotions with the little ones in your life!
