Children’s Books for Dealing with Strong Emotions

Using picture books to engage children is a key strategy for helping them deal with varying and strong emotions.  Here are some of the NAEYC’s recommended children’s books for doing just that:

  • Calm-Down Time/Momento para calmarse by Elizabeth Verdick
  • Cool Down and Work Through Anger by Cheri J. Meiners
  • F is for Feelings by Goldie Millar and Lisa A. Berger
  • Happy Hippo, Angry Duck: A Book of Moods by Sandra Boynton
  • How to Take the Grrr Out of Anger by Elizabeth Verdick and Marjorie Lisovskis

Thanks to the NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) for these great resources.
