El Libro de los Sentimientos is a real-world fiction book about emotions. We like it so much we've included it in our Social Emotional Collection.
Sam y Cati are siblings who feel a lot of different emotions, just like every other kid. The book describes when they feel them, what they feel like, and how they manage them.
Here at MamaLingua, we often hear from teachers and parents who say they need more resources to help them talk to their kids about their feelings. While we often rely on "feliz" and "triste" – happy and sad – there are so many more words we can teach our kids to help them understand and name their emotions.
These days, social-emotional learning – SEL – is incorporated throughout classrooms in how teachers speak to children and address conflict resolution. Books like El Libro de los Sentimientos and our emotions magnets equip parents and teachers with the resources they need to help our kids address challenging feelings and name emotions of all kinds. It gives us all the feels.
