Do you find, at times that it is really difficult to explain things to them in words that they will understand when they ask questions that you just can't find a simple explanation for?
Emotions and explaining them can be one of those difficult things.
Well they don't have to start you "sweating" anymore.
I know when my kids were small, I really wish I had had this book to read to, and with, them.
E is for Emotions
was created by Lisa Weidknecht,
a fellow blogger at Planet Weidknecht.
What I really liked about this book is that it isn't "babyish" but uses words and explanations that young children can understand and does it in a way that makes it fun.
Think about it, how would you explain to your child how it feels to be Overwhelmed or Timid, so that they know what it is that they are feeling before it happens. Do you think you could come up with a simple explanation, with examples, that doesn't make them feel like you have just confused them even more? Lisa does.
This really is a great book that you can read to your children or grandchildren until they can read it to you. And believe me, it is a wonderful first reader that will help them learn about emotions AND learn their letters, in a way they will want to learn. It's a win-win right?
Lisa knows what she is talking about, She has a Bachelor's Degree in Child Development and Family Relationships AND a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education. Pretty neat right?
