The Color Monster: A Story About Emotions by Anna Llenas, 2018
(Ages 3 – 7)
Emotions can be hard for young children to understand, but books can be useful tools to help kids become more familiar with what they are feeling.
The Color Monster is an amazing read aloud that uses bright, vivid illustrations and poignant text to describe various emotions. “This is happiness. It shines yellow like the sun and twinkles like the stars. When you’re happy, you laugh and jump and dance and play! You want to share your happiness with everyone.”
My three-year-old begged to read this book again and again and will often describe her mood with colors now.
With a range of applications, this book is perfect for parents, teachers, and counselors to help children sort their feelings. It is a must-have for most home and school libraries!
