Young children often need help learning and practicing their - feelings words - so they can express themselves well. When children learn from an early age to share their feelings in clear and healthy ways, they are more likely to grow into adults who feel capable of handling life's challenges. Friendly and positive, this picture book uses an alphabet-book format to share and reinforce emotional language and the ideas that while some feelings are more comfortable than others, all emotions are natural and important. Charming, colorful illustrations accompany the sweet and simple text. A section in the back provides tips and activities for parents and caregivers to reinforce the themes and lessons of the book.

"F is for Feelings helps adults teach children a language as essential as our ABCs: the language of emotions without which we cannot communicate what is most real and important in our lives, without which we cannot communicate ourselves to others." --Gabor Maté, M.D., coauthor of Hold On to Your Kids
