With three very sweet and sensitive girls in the house, you can probably guess that we talk about our feelings a lot! And for some reason, the books about feelings are always a hit with my little ones. Maybe because it emphasizes that what they’re feeling is normal and human, or maybe they just like acting out the emotions right alongside each page. Heck, I know I do that too—and I add in some silly voices to match.
This little gem of a book is currently being passed from room to room at bedtime, not only because it addresses all those strong emotions we feel—also because of those awesome heart cutouts! Each page holds a new surprise as the hearts grow smaller and smaller.
The illustrations are sweet, simple and charismatic… and the cover is stunning alongside our other Valentine’s Day favorites in our book box.
In My Heart: A Book of Feelings, written by Jo Witek, illustrated by Christine Roussey.
