Help your child self-regulate their emotions. The Emotions Books: A Little Story About BIG Feelings teaches emotional control and how to act effectively when faced with overwhelming feelings or challenging circumstances.

Throughout this vibrant story, Louie, a brave little elephant, teaches children that when they experience big feelings, their body and mind are simply telling them something; perhaps a hug is needed, or they need to take a break and breath.

Focusing on four primary emotions: anger, sadness, frustration, and happiness - children will learn to welcome their feelings and listen to them instead of impulsively reacting. Managing big emotions can help children act effectively and solve conflicts independently while working their way back to a calm, happy state.

The Emotions Book: A Little Story About BIG Feelings is the 5th book in its series and follows the theme of helping children find their inner bravery by navigating change, transitions, and new feelings.

The 4 BIG Emotions:

Anger: an intense, heightened emotion that can often overwhelm children and lead to adverse reactions when they do not understand why they feel this way. Children must learn to stop and breathe before reacting when in a fiery state. Calming and self-soothing oneself is an essential first step.

Sadness: An emotional pain associated with feelings of loss, despair, grief, helplessness, and disappointment. Sadness can be especially hard for a child when they don't have comfort or understanding of why their feeling this way or that it's simply OK to feel sad sometimes.

Frustration: An emotional response to conflict or opposition. Frustration can often occur from being unable to solve a problem, experiencing a roadblock, or annoyance. Frustration in a child can often lead to anger and adverse reactions if one does not take caution. Stopping to take a break is often a great way to prevent irritation and pivot.

Happiness: an emotional state characterized by satisfaction, joy, and fulfillment. When a child is happy, they are often calm and ready to learn. Teaching children techniques like breathing, stopping, and realizing the core of their feelings is a critical way to get back to feeling happy.
