As a school psychologist, I purchased this book to use with students who may need help identifying their feelings and finding positive coping skills for negative emotions. I haven't been able to use with students yet (on summer break), but have repeatedly read with my "excited" 6 year old son. Highly recommend!

So far, my seven year old son and I have only read this book once but it already has a special place in his personal library. I'm very impressed with the book and have already seem some "lightbulb moments" in my son's reaction to it. If you've got an older child who has difficulty understanding, controlling or articulating his feelings (or those of others), this may be the book for you.

The descriptions of the various feelings and the book's characters (shy spaghetti, lonely lettuce, worried watermelon, etc.) and illustrations are entertaining and kid-appropriate. The recommended techniques that a kid can use to get control of big feelings (like becoming too happy, excited or angry) are great and described in a way that kids can understand - the techniques are simple to use and remember. Also, these techniques are described in detail in the first examples, and then just briefly repeated in future examples - great that there's not too much boring repetition. The feelings examples can easily be related to the day-to-day issues that are going on in a child's life. For example, the description of surprises (though all are unexpected, some can be great and some not) was really helpful enabling my son manage his feelings about a recent and unexpected (to him) disappointment. Specifically, his early evening soccer practice cuts into our bedtime routine, leading too little time for reading and connecting before bed on those days. When we read the "surprises" section of the book and related it to soccer practice, he really understood why things had to be this way and why his feelings, though genuine, had to be controlled so he could continue to do fun things on some evenings.

Also, the book discusses mixed feelings and how they (and all feelings) are perfectly normal.

My five year old struggles w jealous feelings and getting angry. I read this at the library and then bought it here. It's great! It can be a little hard for 6 and under I think to understand but if you explain while reading I think it works. I live how it talks about how if you have mini feelings they can turn into big feelings like anger. Great book!!!!

This was a gift for a very special little boy. He is bright and has so many thoughts going through his brain that I knew this book would show him and his mother to help make sense of it all. Thank you!
