Books about emotions for kids

Our books about feelings for kids have been written by therapists.

That’s why they are educational and fun!

Social and emotional books for kids are a great way to help children understand and learn about feelings.

Books are an ideal way to help children learn about emotions in themselves and others.  Telling and reading stories together is a safe way to talk to kids about their feelings because it opens up the opportunity for them to share their experiences.

When you read books about emotions with children, talk about the characters and how they might be feeling. Share your feelings too.

Take a look at our preschool picture book Feelings and Me. It’s the perfect first feelings book for toddlers and preschoolers.

For 6-11 years olds, our new Emotions and Feelings for Kids Work Book is packed full of great social and emotional learning activities. Ideal for developing emotional literacy and self-regulation skills.
