Yell and Shout, Cry and Pout: A Kid’s Guide to Feelings is an essential guidebook for adults in steering children through the confusing behaviors that emotions evoke.  When you understand the purpose of emotions, behavior becomes understandable.  Each of the eight emotions is clearly defined thorough vignettes and illustrations, keeping both adult and child captivated, thus creating an opportune time for discussion. By recognizing that all humans experience these emotions throughout their lives, the book provides a true sense of comfort. Emotions are not to be shunned, but rather embraced and explained to provide a positive development environment for all children.



I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

This is a great book that helps children learn about feelings. For each emotion, it tells when we feel that emotion, then gives an example of the emotion in a short story, then tells what we do when we feel that emotion, and, finally, lists things that might make you feel that emotion. At the end of the book, the emotions are listed again and the last page is a note to parents.

Yell and Shout and Cry and Pout is good for any child to read but it could also be used as a tool to help children having difficulty expressing or controlling their feelings.
