About the Book
It’s show-and-tell day at school, and Sam and his friends are feeling lots of emotions. He wonders why he feels flippy in his tummy. And why is Alex stomping his feet? And does Hudson usually have such a big grin?
After several unchecked feelings threaten to ruin the big day, Sam and his friends start to learn how to give each emotion a name and ask God to help them remember that “a feeling is just a feeling—it’s not in charge of you.” In a world where kids are dealing with everything from sibling rivalry to bullying, divorce to tragedy, What Am I Feeling? offers a biblically grounded way for children to verbalize their feelings, develop empathy and self-control, and understand their wonderful God-given emotions.
BONUS! Also includes a pull-out feelings chart for your wall!
In My Opinion
It’s Sam’s day for show and tell, but he doesn’t feel so great. In What Am I Feeling? Dr. John and Christi Straub take young readers through some of the body language as well as external and internal signs of several different emotions.
The emotions chart at the back of the books offers parents the opportunity to discuss some other emotions with their children.
The bright and fun pictures (it is dress-up day at school, after all) and short sentences or paragraphs will hold children’s attention through this sweet story of friendship and growing up. And let’s be honest, even we adults sometimes need a reminder to name an emotion and talk to God about it.
