Overview

For children, feelings may be hard to identify, and can sometimes seem confusing or be misunderstood. The ability to recognize and understand our own feelings, as well as the feelings of others, is necessary for social development. This ability builds the foundation for empathy, problem solving, and self control.

Through simple language and appealing illustrations this book helps children envision feelings as friends that they can search for and get to know. Knowing and understanding their feelings can empower children and help them figure out their world.

Gail Maisel has a Masters Degree in Social Work and has been working with children and their families for 30 years. She has spent most of those years in elementary schools where she has had the pleasure of guiding the lives of thousands of young students. She has also served as consultant to teachers and parents. Her primary focus has been helping children understand their feelings about school, family, and social experiences to help them develop more successful adacemic strategies and social skills. Her artisitc flair has allowed her to develop many visual tools that help children envision some of these abstract concepts. The playful illustrations in this book are just an example of some of these.
