Written by Educational Psychologist Julie Dini, the book “Feelings and Me” is a great resource for parents, teachers and guardians who would like to teach their young ones about emotions.


I just love the idea of using various animals that marvelously capture how a certain emotion looks like! This is especially attractive and amusing for kids, quickly catching their interest and imagination. What better way to learn than to engage the curiosity of a child?


Parents and children can spend countless hours trying to discuss and even mimic the emotions shown in the book. It is both fun and educational, creating the perfect environment for learning something important.


The section giving tips to parents is also a wonderful bonus that could help parents in assisting the emotional growth of their children. The suggested exercises encourage instruction and play at the same time.


When I went over to the book’s website, I have learned that the book is also useful for therapy and for children with autism and other mental conditions. In this way, the value of this book is expanded exponentially, becoming an essential tool in addressing various mental states of children.


Our emotions play an indispensable part in our humanity, and this book is a must-read for anyone who needs help in recognizing the various emotions that people have. For children with special needs, it is a precious gift whose value is far greater than we could ever imagine it to be.
