A Book About Feelings
This is a great book to read with children, it’s all about feelings! Each page tells a little story about how the character feels along with giving the feeling a colour. When I read this book with children I like to share how that feeling comes up for me or use an example and that gets children thinking about how and when they felt that way and opens up communication with them.

Starring the same little girl in the same charming illustration style as Hello In There!, In My Heart explores emotions–happiness, sadness, bravery, anger, shyness and more. Unlike other feelings books that tend to oversimplify, In My Heart lyrically explains what an emotion feels like, physically, inside. For example: “When I get really angry, my heart feels like it’s going to explode! Don’t come near me! My heart is yelling, hot and loud. This is when my heart is mad.” Toddlers will be empowered by this new vocabulary and able to practice articulating and identifying their own emotions. On the cover and the right side of each spread, a die-cut heart decreases in size, creating a multi-coloured heart the depth of the entire book.
