Dealing with Feelings Series

by Elizabeth Crary, M.S.

illustrated by Jeanne Whitney

Reviews and Comments

This series provides tips for parents who wish to help their child distinguish between feelings and actions. Each book includes stories that provide options, and thus empower the child to better deal with difficult emotions and “problem-solve” toward a positive outcome.
Parent Council
In all of the stories, children are encouraged to express their feelings in healthy, constructive, nonthreatening ways. Useful additions for one-on-on sharing between adult and child.
School Library Journal
Both children and parents can learn effective, realistic tools not only for dealing with difficult feelings, but also for problem solving in general.
Northwest Baby and Child
Recommended by the Jim Eisenreich Foundation for Children with Tourette Syndrome

Other reviewer and reader comments:

“I’m Frustrated is valuable because of the many positive techniques it suggests for venting frustration.”
“I’m Mad provides productive and positive interactive ways for parents to support their children in dealing with a sometimes debilitating emotion.”
“Each book [interrupts] the story at various points to ask young readers to decide what the child [in the story] could do next. The continuation of the story depends on the reader’s responses. . .Model the kind of dialogue that teachers and parents can have with children to help them deal with feelings.”
