This book is great for differentiating between core emotions and appreciating there are different aspects of emotions and the feelings associated with the core ones such as anxiety is part of fear .
It is excellent in the fact it gently alludes to why they are each sometimes good or useful (anger shows how it can be turned to passion by enjoying sports games) and also when they can be problematic or unreasonable (disgust hates feet but we can't do away with them!) in very simple sentences. Us adults can extrapolate the meaning giving room for discussion with young children about is this a good way to feel, what can we do about it.
It's still early days but I think this has had an impact on my daughter, she is engaged by the fact it's characters from the film but responds to discussion about what each emotion says. We do 'emotion in charge' throughout the day especially if I can recognise a tantrum brewing and then I'm using other strategies to help deal such as a calming breath book called 'every breath a smile' if her anger hasn't gone past the pale.
Well worth every penny, although do bear in mind these are thin paper pages, she is very good with books so the only damage so far is a little colouring in on a couple of their eyes :)
