What Am I Feeling? By Dr. Josh Straub & Christi Straub

Emotions are powerful things, not only for adults but also for children. Sometimes it is hard to understand them or even why we are experiencing them, especially for little ones. Good feelings are easy but bad ones are confusing for kids. Adults can usually name them but children can’t. They just know their feelings are there.
This book is a beautiful tool to help young ones understand emotions are a part of the way God made us, but we must learn to control them. We aren’t just victims of
how we feel. I love, love, love the repeated saying, “A feeling is just a feeling, it’s not in charge of you.” One all ages need to remember! The authors offer child and parent ways to biblically get a reign on strong emotions with God’s help.
I liked that the book was in rhyme. This is not only delightful to the child but helps them remember what has been read. The illustrations are spot on! Colorful and simple pictures of children in emotion sparking situations that all little ones can relate to. The feeling chart was great but I would have like to have seen greater number represented. I am going to go on line and copy a more extensive chart to use with the book.
A wonderful book for kids and a great teaching tool for parents! I received this book from BH Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review. The opinions I have stated are my own.
