"Feelings are a part of you and everyone you know," begins this short digital book about the way we feel. Children from toddlers to 1st grade will enjoy this brief description of the world of feelings. The title is very lightly animated & interactive, told with adorable pictures of a felted teddy bear family and the lovely voice of Ruby, from the feelings show, narrating.
The book describes how we all have feelings, even our pets. Some feelings feel good, others are uncomfortable, but ultimately everyone needs to listen to their feelings to understand themselves better. This title does a nice job explaining a big concept to little ones, who are notorious for having big feelings that are difficult to manage.
This title is solidly made from PicPocket Books, although it is difficult to restart from the end of the book and does not have a page guide. Nice settings do allow this book to be read or experienced with narration that highlights word-for-word. Overall, this is a unique digital title that provides young children with a great foundation for understanding their own emotional lives and the emotional reactions of others. Recommended.

Everyone has feelings, from children to adults, even animals. Feelings are 'reactions to things going on around us and inside us.' Our brains send messages to our bodies, creating all different kinds of feelings. Sometimes you can tell how someone is feeling from the look on their face or how they hold their body. Other times people use words to describe how they feel inside.
When you share your feelings, other people can respond ... usually in ways that will help us feel better and understood. We should listen to our feelings and pay attention to what they say about us. Feelings are clues to help us understand who we are and what we need.
Feels change all day long ... and not all feelings are pleasant. Some are very negative, making us feel uncomfortable. Others are warm and fuzzy. When we share our good & bad feelings, we give others the chance to understand us better. Then we'll feel connected to others and full of love.
