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.

We received this book to give an honest review.
I have to say I was impressed with this book. This was an instance where K had come home from school and had did something he felt bad about. So I went and pulled this book out and read to him a section which was Shame. The writing was great to where K knew what I was meaning by the word shame and with the definitions and understanding of the word he was able to really know what he was feeling was shame. 

Trying to explain feelings is hard enough to do. But with this book it made it easier to sit down and not only read about the different feelings, but to also discuss them. 

Being a parent is not easy, and it is especially not easy when your child or children are trying to express themselves and you have no clue what they are feeling. This is a great book for parents to read to help understand what their child is feeling at times, along with helping children understand the certain emotions they are feeling.

This is one book that I highly recommend to keep on your bookshelf.
