Meet The Feeling Friends!!!
As a parent, I know how important it is to teach children from the youngest age possible about feelings. Their feelings, the feelings of people around them and healthy and appropriate ways to express their feelings. Sometimes it’s hard to explain things to a young child in a way they will understand and identify with. When I find a product that allows me to open a dialogue with my children about issues that are complex, I feel the need to share. Recently, I was sent, “Meet the Feeling Friends” Book and CD to review. This book is written by Karen D. Cuthrell (KK) who co-created the Feeling Friends nearly 15 years ago, in an inspired response to her young daughter’s need to express her inner feelings open and honestly. Each Feeling Friend evolved as a loving guide and conduit for sharing even those hard-to-reveal emotions.
Journey to Feeling Free Island and join KK as she introduces you to her bakers’ dozen of delightful Friends – characters that symbolize the array of primary feelings considered universal to humanity; love, joy, worry, anger, sadness, happiness, loneliness, grumpiness, shyness, panic, caution and confidence! This book and CD empowers children to identify and express the feelings that hide inside them waiting to be recognized and understood. They give parents and children the vocabulary to talk to each other about feelings. “The Feeling Friends characters are animals and insects presented in real-life situations that teach children about feelings and healthy ways to express them. They are good for children,” says school psychologist Kathy J. Philyaw, Ph.D.
Meet the Feeling Friends™ book and CD allows each Feeling Friend to reveal his or her identity while experiencing the benefits of sharing feelings. The Feeling Friends thrive in the ideal climate where honesty, truth, mutual respect, appropriate timing, and expression, come together to create security and acceptance of feelings – for ourselves and others.
In this delightfully illustrated book you will meet characters like, Worry the Fear Worm, who like his name worries constantly. Angie the Angry Tiger uses words when he gets mad. No hitting, punching, kicking or biting, even when he’s angry there’s never any fighting. You’ll meet Lotta Love the LovaRoo and Joy Bird who sings songs of joy. Ida the I-Can-Bee is not afraid to follow its dreams and Flutter the Shy Butterfly who has a great big voice inside her. Your child will absolutely love learning about these characters, and this book is sure to be a springboard that will stimulate a young child to talk about their feelings.
