Feelings for Little Children Series

by Elizabeth Crary, M.S. and Shari Steelsmith

illustrated by Mits Katayama

  • When You’re Mad and You Know It
  • When You’re Happy and You Know It
  • When You’re Silly and You Know It
  • When You’re Shy and You Know It

Toddlers feel emotions just as older children and adults do. Their frustrations at their inability to say how they feel can be eased with these delightful rhymes that teach words and actions, sung to the tune of “If You’re Happy and You Know It, Clap Your Hands.”

Children need to hear words six to nine months before they can use the words themselves. Babies begin to use the language they hear from birth at about eight to twelve months of age.

Mad, Happy, Silly, and Shy are charming beginner’s introductions to a feelings vocabulary. The sooner parents start using language to express feelings with their babies, the sooner toddlers will be able to say how they feel. Parents know how much easier their job is when their toddlers can make themselves understood!

Mad, Happy, Silly, and Shy will give the youngest children a head start on the road to healthy expression of feelings. These unique board books fill an unmet need in a most engaging way.
