About the Book:
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.

So I wasnt sure what to really expect when I started reading this. But I found it to be a great book. I read it a couple times and I found this book amazing. I have 4 young boys and explaining feelings is something that is not very easy. It is broken down into each feeling. For each feeling there is a little story, some illustrations and other ways/reasons we have the feelings.
This book is perfect for helping young kids understand emotion. It also is great for parents also. This book helps parents explain what emotions are and ways to deal with theem to their chldren. It also gives examples of different ways you feel every emotion. It is something that is very benefical to read and share with you children!
