I have always appreciated books that help people process their emotions. In “The Booboos You Feel Inside Your Heart” by Karine Spiess, I found a particularly helpful book for children who need to understand and manage how they feel.
This is very useful especially for parents, teachers and guardians who must guide young ones as they tackle new and unsettling feelings they encounter in their day-to-day lives. If adults can have a hard time managing their emotions, how much more the children who are just starting to find out what their feelings mean?
This book has very attractive illustrations that can easily catch the attention of readers. They were engaging and informative, assisting the reader to understand the topic more. It has used environments and settings that are familiar to most children to help them visualize the situation better.
Each emotion was also handled with the proper balance of logic and empathy. It would teach children to sympathize with those struggling with difficult emotions while also being able to think of practical ways to handle them.
Written with the use of rhymes, the book is fun to read and easier to recall at the same time. Whenever children experience similar difficult emotions, they can easily remember that part of the book that can help them cope with their feelings.
They can enjoy reading the book with adults as they discuss the various stressful situations that they may encounter in life. This period is very valuable not only as a time for bonding but as a time to pose questions and to give answers that only their guardians can provide. Later on, children can read this book over again and recall that precious time spent with parents, teachers or other family members.
Children who can be taught the basics about emotional intelligence can have a better chance at adapting to challenges in their growing up years. They can develop more resilience as they become exposed to more demanding emotional challenges.
The true value of this book can thus extend long after the young ones have grown up. It’s a guide that can assist them and help them manage even more complex emotions that can arise later on in life.
