Mothers of toddlers who are 2-5 will come to appreciate this book. As a mother, and now grandmother, I know how hard it is for children to express their feelings. They are easily frustrated and may cry or have a tantrum. You want to help them become more independent and begin to control their emotions a little.
My Book of Feelings is colorful and grabs your attention. It’s clear and helps you interact with your child to learn what emotions are. You can talk about your own feelings and how you had to take a deep breath etc to calm yourself in a situation.
I highly recommend this book. I wish I had this 30 years ago!
The Little Prince: My Book of Feelings was a great book to teach children about different types of feelings and the physical sensations associated with them. I really loved the 4 exercises at the end that help children process their feelings physically.
A lovely spin off using The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery for discussing emotions and feelings with children/adolescents. A knowledge of the story of the original book will help with working through the activities included in the book. Simple language which summarises emotions accurately. Would be a very useful book for school counsellors, psychologists, teachers, parents to use with young people.
I think this book have a jenius approach. Feelings is complicated, especially for kids. This book explains such a heavy topic with light but meaningfull words. And dont forget the illustration with well known characters. As a grownup I even feel that this book will help children to figure out and brave to show their feeling more. A treasure to keep.
Thanks Netgalley for providing me with this book for exchange with honest opinion.
Thank you, Chouette Publishing, for the advance reading copy.
I am a big, big fan of The Little Prince and this is just the book the world needed more from this book! The description of different emotions and how they can be described with ease and understanding.
I love the illustrations and the colourful pages.
So worth the read. A must keep for every child (and adult too!).
This was absolutely delightful. The bright illustrations were wonderful. My children and I all adored this book. Many thanks to the author, publisher, and NetGalley for the advanced copy of the book.
The Little Prince: My book of Feelings is such a beautiful book. It shows children how to deal with their emotions and in a lovely way. I would recommend it for every parent to read it with their child. Thank you NetGalley for letting me read this amazing and educative book!!!! 5 Stars easily
Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for an advanced copy of this book in exchange of my honest opinion.
This book is great. I loved it, I am going to buy it as soon as it is publish and I will recommend it to everyone.
In 'The Little Prince: My Book of Feelings' kids and adults are not only presented with 7 emotions that we can feel. We also get a short definition of said emotions and examples about when we might feel it. We get the emotions colour-coded so young children can learn how to recognise those emotions and understand them as well, and, lastly, we get some tips and exercises that we can try with kids when these emotions take over.
In conclusion, this book is absolutely perfect.
If you are a fan of the little prince then this book would be great for you and your little one, to help explain emotions. The emotions are explained and have all a different color. So this would be a helpful tool for learning.
Thank you to NetGalley for the book in exchange for an honest review.
This book is good for preschoolers who need help identifying and putting words to their emotions. My children and I loved the bright colors and illustrations. The coping strategies in the back are my favorite.
I'm always looking for ways to try and explain feelings in a way that might make it easier for kids to understand and I really thought this book did a good job of that.
This book goes through 7 emotions that we can feel. The colors really grab kids attention and help them focus on the emotions. I love the questions that allow one to interact with the kids and see what really makes them feel those emotions.
It ends with ways that we can help control those emotions which I thought was wonderful.
This was a great read and I can't recommend it enough.
This is a sweet book that describes different feelings and engages with the reader about their own feelings. I read it to my 4-year-olds, and loved hearing about when they had experienced each feeling. For joy, one of my twins said the museum gave her joy, while the other said staring at stars brought her joy.
The little exercises at the end of the book were wonderful as well. My twins tried to act out each exercise. It reminded them of the children’s yoga they enjoy. .
Thank you to NetGalley and Chouette Publishing for a digital ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This charming and excellently executed book based on classic The Little Prince by Antoinne de Saint-Exupery helps young children learn how to identify, give voice to, and handle their emotions.
The book covers the emotions of joy, sadness, fear, anger, calm, surprise, and love. It associates each emotion with a color, describes what the emotion is and what it feels like, and then shows an illustrated example of a situation that makes The Little Prince feel that emotion. I love that it encourages the child to interact with the book by asking "What make you feel (insert emotion here)?"
To make this book even better, at the end of the book there are four exercises to help children move through their emotions, giving them ways to calm their fears, drive out anger, soothe their sadness and find calm.
I LOVE this book and recommend it highly to anyone who loves The Little Prince or who knows young children!
My thanks to ChickBoom! Books for allowing me to read an ARC of the book via NetGalley. The book is scheduled to be published 8/16/22. All opinions expressed in this review are my own and are freely given.
I'm a big fan of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince so I was excited to read this book. This was such a cute little book. My son loved this book. It was so fun identifying the different emotions. It's perfect for preschool-aged children.
If you happen to page through this small book quickly, it seems relatively simple. However, emotions are big things to little children. Young children have a difficult time understanding their emotions or what causes them, therefore, they cannot control them or react appropriately.
This children’s picture book has four helpful exercises to diffuse negative emotions. This book would be extremely helpful in a toddler’s home, pre-school, or early elementary school setting. Parents and teachers can use the exercises to teach the children to control their emotional responses to negative feelings.
I enjoyed the story of the Little Prince and the vibrant illustrations in the book. I think that children would respond positively to this book.
I want to thank Author Corinne Delporte, Illustrator Antoine de Saint-Exupery, Choutte Publishing, and NetGalley for the opportunity to review this Advanced Reader’s Copy. This is a voluntary review, and all comments and opinions are entirely my own.
I chose this book with my 7 year old daughter , who’s experiencing lots of emotions right now.
So this has helped us a lot explain some of the feelings she has right now.
A beautiful book!
This was an adorable and sweet book for kids who enjoyed "The Little Prince." I could see it being useful to any child that needs help expressing or visualizing their feelings.
This cute little book draws on examples from the original story of The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry to teach children about seven emotions: joy, surprise, anger, love, fear, sadness and calm. Each emotion has two pages dedicated to it; an explanation of the emotion and its signs on the left, followed by an example taken from the original story where the little prince feels that emotion. Accompanied by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's iconic original illustrations, the text and examples help young readers connect with the little prince and understand their own feelings. The last few pages of this book include simple, helpful suggestions for exercises to get rid of fear, anger, sadness and also achieve calm.
So many feelings to feel, to learn about, to manage. From joy, to fear, to anger and sadness, this picture book takes a journey into the basic feelings. Along with The Little Prince, children can explore them all. Delporte has created a book that can help open up a dialogue about these big feelings with little people.
Deleporte validates all feelings children may feel. She shares strategies, age appropriate explanations and vocabulary, along with great illustrations, to make the concept seem more understandable.
This story was both entertaining and educational, which can be a tricky balance to maintain in a children’s book, and I will be suggesting it to teachers whenever possible. Incorporating difficult to navigate topics such as this into children's picture books is a tried and true way to teach an important life skill in a way that is fun. This would be an amazing addition for classroom libraries, counselling offices and more.
This was such a great book! Each books talk about a different emotion, explaining what that emotion is and how it feels, and gives an example of the little prince feeling it. It then asks "What makes you feel ____" which is a great open ended questions for kids to think about! I am all about embracing your feelings and 'feeling as the feels' so I loved the message of this book. It was short and sweet and my three year old loved it too! I loved the page of exercises at the end as well. Overall, a wonderful book that I wound purchase and recommend to others!

The Little Prince: My Book of Feelings by Corinne Delporte is a short, easily digestible book about seven feelings: Joy, Surprise, Anger, Love, Fear, Sadness, and Calm. With art from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince), it has a friendly, colorful approach to help engage young readers. At the end of the book, there are a few mindful exercises to practice. It's a great book to help others learn about these particular feelings.
This book explores different emotions by using illustrations from The Little Prince (Antoine de Saint-Exupery). It is nicely done, explaining different emotions with examples and giving some tipps how to deal with negative emotions. A very valuable book to talk to small children about different emotions!
This was adorable. I loved reading The Little Prince and my toddler has recently enjoyed the illustrated version of the book, so I got this for us to read together. It was well laid out, and I liked the colour scheme for the emotions. As my toddler is learning to regulate emotions at this stage, it was a helpful read too. I appreciated the suggestions on how to manage major emotions that was included at the end.
I would like to thank Corinne Delporte, Antoine de Saint-Exupe ́ry, Netgalley and Chouette Publishing for providing an advanced reader copy in exchange of an honest review. The Little Prince: My Book of Feelings follow the Little Prince as he explains Joy, Surprise, Anger, Love, Fear, Sadness and Calmness and how to appropriately handle and identify these emotions. This book did a great job going over feelings and how to properly and in a positive and healthy way handle emotions. It’s one of those books that isn’t too pushy and that you would find in a therapist or counsellor office. It’s written in a way where you don’t need to have any prior knowledge of The Little Prince to understand. It is also written where all ages can benefit from the book. You could read it to a pre-schooler or fifth grader as it doesn’t have an age limit. Overall, a great book for emotions and feelings.
I love this💗💗💗💗💗💗 heartwarming book with full of unexpcted feeelings while reading! It’s best for children and help them to know every emotions and how to identify their emotions !!
I received this ARC in exchange for my honest review.
I love the Little Prince and was excited to see this book! This is a greatnintroductory or reminder book to explain emotions. There are great descriptions and tactics to guide oneself through these feelings. Great illustrations too!
A good book to explore emotions with your little ones, and to make it better with great little prince drawings, you could read this book from 3 years up in that instance, you may have to simplify the text for very young children, with was a good read for me and my youngest.
Thank you NetGalley for the free ARC and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
I love The Little Prince so was happy to find this book in the children’s section of books, can’t wait to by a copy for my collection. My daughter will enjoy this book, too. Thanks for the review copy.
The Little Prince is always a hit. He shows kids how to handle emotions in this cute, colorful book and gives examples of coping mechanisms.
I received this story to review from NetGalley. As a little girl “The Little Prince” was one of my absolute favorite stories so when I saw that they had a story about feelings with the “Little Prince” I knew I needed to read it especially as I teach 1st grade and Social Emotional Learning is one of the lessons we teach our students every day.
Reading the book I quickly realized this book is one of the most perfect books to read for a SEL lesson every day. Right off the bat what I loved that the author did was include colors. Students or children at a young age have difficulty expressing their emotions that is why colors and numbers with facial pictures help your young one identify what they are feeling. Therefore starting the book with colors to identify emotions is perfect.
Next the author uses the color to explain what emotion that is associated with and includes details about that particular emotion. My only complaint is some of the descriptions of that emotion may go over your young ones head therefore you may need to break the feelings down even further by including some examples.
Lastly I love that the book includes conversation starters about when your young ones feel that particular emotion and exercises that will help them to feel calm and happy. This is so important because as a teacher SEL isn’t just about a read aloud of a story. For me it is a time I am able to check in with my students to see how they are doing. Many times throughout the day it is hard to check in with them because we are constantly on the go, but by having a conversation with them I am able to help them.
Overall this is a must buy book for me and I am looking forward to purchasing as soon as it is available. I can’t wait to read it to my next years class as unfortunately this school year is almost over. :(
I thought this book was very well done. The illustrations are lovely. It manages to describe feelings well and it’s not just the normal happy/sad/mad group… it gets into things like feeling surprise or joy or calm or love too. As a counselor, my favorite part of the book May have been the short how to handle feelings at the back where it talked about ways to handle anger, feel calm, etc. Throughout the book it all kids to identify things that make them feel for the little price does. All in all a good book for any kid’s library in my opinion.
This was a really cute book! Each page talks about a different emotion, then asks "What makes you feel ____" which is a great question for kids to think about! This book was sweet, important and the perfect length to keep my three year olds attention. I loved the page of exercises at the end as well. I would definitely recommend this to others!
Overall Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
This is a beautifully written Illustration of feelings. Each topic was explained thoughtfully and easy to understand. The colorful illustrations will draw any child in to concentrate and follow the story. I love how The Little Prince, which is such a great story, features in this book and that the story line, although fear and anger is used, still leaves you feeling calmed and satisified.
This is a very sweet book that explains the different emotions one might feel (from anger to sadness and happiness to calm). The illustrations are lovely and it's great that there's a section where the prince can relate to each of these emotions. It's important for readers to feel like they can engage and relate to the topics! At the end, there's a section on how to deal with these emotions (breathing exercises etc), I think this was a lovely extra to add for some mindfulness!🥰
My son really enjoyed this book. I think more books like this are needed to help children understand and get a better grasp of their emotions. We loved the illustrations and I liked that each one was color coded. It also gave an example of each feeling. Great for any child needing to understand feelings more or for any fan of The Little Prince.
Thank you NetGalley and Chouette Publishing for presenting me with an ARC of this book in exchange of a honest review.
The Little Prince has done it again! My Book of Feelings is a great way to teach little children more about emotions. And this book in particular, does it in a very easy and simple way. The colour guide and sentences would be greatly helpful for a kid trying to understand their emotions.
Like the original title, this cute emotional guidebook conveys the story while sharing with children the need to recognize different emotions.
I love children’s books about emotions. It’s really important to me to help my kids understand their feelings and provide them with tools to navigate those feelings.
This book was fantastic in that it was simple, but colour coding the emotions and engaging the reader to apply them to their own lives was great. I appreciated the end where there were strategies for handling certain emotions. It definitely was a book that helped open up an important conversation.
Thank you NetGalley and Chouette Publishing for the digital ARC in exchange for my honest review.
Everyone has heard of The Little Prince, I remember reading it as a young child. This book got my attention especially the title book of feelings. As I read about how the feelings are described I envision what it would mean to a 4-5 year old reading this. The book has colorful images each describing colors with feelings and has the prince talking about his feelings. I think it was creative and helpful for young ones to learn about feelings, I had expected more of a storyline but it was just that, a book about feelings. I will recommend it for young ones.
This is a sweet and simple book to help children identify and process their feelings. I particularly liked the end where it discusses how to work through their big emotions and gives them exercises to practice to help regulate their emotions healthily.
This book clearly explains feelings to a younger audience, managing expectations and supporting young people develop safe and healthy ways to control and process emotions.
The use of colours makes it very clear for young people to distinguish between the feelings, whilst also helping them to visualise their emotions - this is not the first time this style has been used to visualise feelings, however it works well and I am glad it was used here.
The sentences are not too long and do not use overly complex language - making it clear and concise - enhancing the readability.
The question prompts throughout the book are great conversation openers between adults and children to help discuss feelings and answer any questions along the way.
The exercises at the end of the book also support the education in processing and controlling emotions - this will guide young people in developing health habits and practicing mindfulness from a young age.
I feel Calm should have came earlier in the book, as it is mentioned under both Fear & Anger. This would've provided some further clarity and supported the flow of the book.
Thank you to the Publisher & NetGalley for this ebook for review.
(I received an ARC of this book through NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.)
Expected publication: August 16th 2022
This was just so cute and helpful. I imagine it can be very hear for some people to talk about and explain feelings and emotions to children. I believe this book can be a great support to start this conversation and also to give children some tools that will help them understand why the feel the way they do!
Again, excited to have received a digital copy from NetGalley & Chouette Publishing.
A truly unique perspective for young readers. The Little Prince My Book of Feelings take unique shades of color and detailed artwork to capture readers attention. If you are already a fan of The Little Prince, you are immediately drawn into the familiar Little Prince world. The characters welcome you into a safe place to learn about your emotions and how you feel. The use of colors to represent each emotion is a new perspective on building awareness of emotions that we all feel at some time in our life. The descriptive, yet simple explanations of emotions are easy to understand. Each emotion is presented and then followed up with questions as to how/when the reader may have felt a similar way. The breathing and yoga-like exercises at the end of the book are priceless tools for readers of all ages to learn and use as a resource when faced with challenging emotions of everyday life.
This simple and beautiful work should be a staple in every home.
Very lovely book.
Great for kids and helps them identity and accept emotions.
Illustrated beautifully as you’d expect and overall a very calming book
Nicely describes feelings in an easy way for kids to understand. I like the format of the book where it describes the feeling, gives an example and asks a question. I think my 3 year old would really enjoy this book.
This is a fun and colorful board book that is sure to be enjoyed by parents and littles alike. Fans of the original Little Prince story will enjoy it most of all.
Having grown up loving The Little Prince, this book was very sweet and was very detailed in talking to little ones in a grown up way about feelings. I liked the different emotions that it references, and the words used to describe each feeling. I also liked how the author took parts of the original story to relate those feelings too. This would be wonderful in a classroom setting, especially one where The Little Prince, or a picture book/shortened version of it, has already been read.
Such an amazing book and so colorful yet so wonderfully put together. Kids and grownups alike are going to look this one. Am waiting for the book to come out in print. Definitely on my gifting list this year
Thank you Netgalley and Chouette books for the ARC
As students returned to the classroom this year, social-emotional learning has been very important in the classroom. This was a great book to begin a discussion with my students about their feeling and emotions and how to address them.
A nice book for teaching younger children about feelings and how to deal with different emotions. Also a nice introduction to the characters from The Little Prince.
This is a delightful oversized board book. It includes the beloved character from the original story of "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry which is a children's classic. Little ones can come to an understanding of their every day emotions as the book is shared and discussed with them. Many times little ones find it difficult to express their feelings and find it hard to manage them.
The author has included the emotions of joy, surprise, anger, love, fear, sadness, and calm. She has highlighted four exercises at the end to help children process their feelings and emotions which will increase their self-awareness and confidence.
The illustrations of course are epic and this book would be a wonderful asset to a teacher, psychologist and parent. I highly endorse this book!
What a lovely new way to revisit the Little Prince! Read this one, and so loved seeing the Little Prince in a new way, and exploring emotions.
A very cute picture book to explore your kid's emotions ans put words on them. Each emotion is illustrated by an example from the Little Prince's story and with a beautiful drawing by Saint-Exupéry. Really cute, easy to read and educational. Age 5
Who better than the Little Prince to teach kids about emotions? The author cleverly uses from the classic French tale to illustrate a range of emotions, from joy to sadness, in a way that will help kids understand and process these feelings.
I love The Little Prince and always imagine reading this story to my kid n the bedstory time. I tried, but then I realise that, unfortunately, it is too complex and difficult for the youngest and it is just too early to read it to her.
Then, I found it. The Little Prince's inspiration and book about... the emotions. Beautiful illustrations, simple description - perfect for the kids who are starting to learn about the world and their reactions.
Mut have in the kids' library
I thought this was a very cute and informative book. I work in an elementary school and I am always looking for new books to read with my students on emotions.
The Little Prince book of feelings is a great book for children. It explains what the feeling is, gives an example from the story of a little Prince and then asks the child to think about what makes them feel that emotion.
I work with children with learning difficulties and I use this type of activity all the time. Letting the little ones know it's okay to feel feelings.
Great little book.
Each feeling has a corresponding color in this book. There are questions for the reader to consider what makes them feel each feeling as well as an explanation of the emotion. I think counselors would benefit from having this book for youngsters.
I picked up this book from Netgalley. It’s very well explained and illustrated and an ideal Children’s book. Each of the feeling was depicted as to what it means, how body displays it along with giving context by asking appropriate questions. The book also covers some ways to overcome negative emotions. Glad that I picked this up and would recommend to every parent to hand it over to your child since they would definitely enjoy it.
Who doesn't love the little prince? It is such a magical book...
This one helps to uncover various emotions, honestly the little prince felt like a smart tactic to get the attention of the many many fans.
The colour codes was clever and the illustrations so lovely.
Helpful book but the main character could have been anyone.
I had great success reading this book with a 10-year-old with autism who is still finding his voice and grappling with understanding and expressing emotions. He used the questions at the end of each feeling to say what makes him happy/sad/fearful etc. He liked the colour code and I liked that it corresponded to our feelings thermometer that we use in our sessions.
An excellent short but beautiful book about feelings with colour associations to help the reader name and relate to their feelings. With lovely illustrations of the Little Prince and mindful exercises at the end of the book, this will be an asset to parents, teachers and therapists helping children and young people learn to explore and manage their feelings.
thanks to #NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book ahead of publication in exchange for an honest review
Who better than the Little Prince as a guide to emotions for young children? This book helpfully describes a number of feelings and assigns each one a color. For example, anger is red. It is described as an unpleasant emotion that might make a child want to yell. On the accompanying page is a Saint Expury illustration of the Little Prince when he is angry. Children are then asked to think about what makes them angry. This is the format in a book that covers seven emotions. At the end, some mindfulness activity suggestions are included.
This is an excellent book to read with a child. Kids can be encouraged to bring the book out to show an adult how they are feeling. Children can also learn the color codes and use these. I think that this book could be an effective tool for social workers, teachers and mental health professionals who engage with young ones.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Chouette Publishing for this title. All opinions are my own.
I loved the illustrations, they are some of my favorite from children's books. This book covers a good range of emotions, that small children (and even adults) may have trouble expressing in a healthy way. The color coding is a nice touch, especially for kids who can't read yet. I loved the exercises included at the end.
a cute and easy read for children to help them understand and identify their feelings and emotions. It's readable fairly quickly which adds to the quality of the book.
This book is a great way to help little kids understand and process big feelings. Using colors for associate feelings helps them communicate when they don’t have the words. I liked the questions with each emotion/color to make the story engaging. The breathing exercises at the end were great too.
My children were not fans. But don't let that turn you away from this wonderful little book. They felt upset with the age old reaffirming that certain colors are associated with certain feelings. My oldest loves red, so to see Anger labelled with her favorite color was slightly off putting. Aside from the color association, this was a beautiful read. The illustrations were whimsical and gave a nod to the original source. The words were easy to understand for young readers. Overall, it's an amazing resource to help little ones navigate their emotions in a healthy way.
Bonus content in the back:
The book ends with 4 different activities to help you move through your emotions. Similar to the yoga books we have, it helps ground you and center on how emotions are rooted in the body as well as the mind.
A definite grab if you have little ones with world sized emotions. <3
I loved the different colors that represented different feelings and emotions. I think this is a great little book for all kinds of kids.
Miigweetch to Netgalley, Chouette Publishing, and CrackBoom! Books for the DRC.
This is a great first book about feelings, and does a good job of using simple, straightforward language to talk about feelings. Each feeling is associated with a color and there are exercises for children to practice working out their big feelings. I believe that “The Little Prince” theme is more for the adults reading this to children, as I think the target audience is too young to have engaged with the novel in a meaningful way yet, but I could be mistaken. Having said that, I'm a huge fan of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry so obviously I enjoyed the artwork a great deal. It's a win for me!
Overall I recommend this book and think it would be a good tool for counselors or others who work with small children who are just beginning to become self-aware and may need guidance to label their feelings.
What a lovely little book to start this journey with! I've only just recently borrowed a book from the library with my own small human, exactly about this topic, but this was a bit of a miss, as it didn't explain much at all, so we were both none the wiser. so we put the book back in the bag, ready to be returned to the library.
This book however does REALLY talk about these different FEELINGS! This book really describes the feelings and also gives examples of exercises you can do together with your child (or they can do alone depending on the age or maturity of the child I guess)
the colours used for each emotion are excellent, they have a water colour effect and are not shouting in your face. The pictures are pleasant, really in style with the other ' The Little Prince' book series. The wording used is excellent, really well thought out and can be read over and over again. I think this book could be very useful for None verbal children, as they can point at the colours to tell caregivers / educators how they are feeling, as even on the cover the colours have the words written into them making it understandable straight away for everyone.
I do think that this book could even be aimed at children from 2 years old, as even thought some things they wont totally understand yet, they will be able to get used to the words and colours corresponding to it and when caregivers / educators use this colour system during the day, I think it could really improve the mental wellbeing of the child.
I'm giving this book 5 out of 5 stars.
This book has so many wonderful messages and has lots of lovely descriptions for children about a variety of emotions. It would be a perfect lesson accompaniment for a unit on feelings. There are even some exercises at the end of the book to try. It is a charming and educational book that will be enjoyed by many.
I love, love, love books that help people identify their emotions and how to express them. And I especially love that The Little Prince is being used to convey this experience. Highly recommend.
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with an eARC. All opinions are my own.
This wasn't the greatest as an e-book, but the content was perfect. Any book that teaches little ones about feelings and how to name them gets an A in my book. Fear, anger, and sadness are difficult for little minds to understand and not push it all to anger. Thanks!
This book is a good resource for teaching ages 3-6 how to recognize and appropriately react to feelings they are having. Joy, surprise, anger, love, fear, sadness, and calm are the emotions discussed in the book.
The book’s format includes the emotion, the reaction and the instinctive behavior coupled with an example of an appropriate response from the Little Prince. Exercises for calming fear, driving out anger, soothing sadness and finding calm are included to help children successfully work through the emotions they feel.
I received this book from the author/publisher free of charge, with no expectation of a positive review.
This is a wonderful book for children about feelings. It describes different feelings and offers room for the child to express a time when they felt/feel like that. I love the various activities at the end of the book, and the caregiver can also use this as a springboard for other activities as well (ex - arts and crafts). This book is perfect for classrooms, school and public libraries, and home libraries. Highly recommended.
This was a very cute book about feelings. My kids loved it (8 1/2 and 5) and we’re very engaged throughout the whole book. The illustrations were very cute and colorful. I think it’s great to have a book that describes feelings to children so they can have a better concept of what each emotion is. I think this is a great book for little kids. Both kiddos have it two thumbs up, so that’s a plus! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Mr 3 picked this book out for a bedtime story book last night. We read the first part of the book where it talks about the emotion, next gives an example of the emotion through the little princes story and asks what makes us feel that particular emotion.
It was a new but lovely experience for both Mr 3 and me to talk about emotions like this with each. It was great to bond with Mr 3 and listen to his answers or me giving him examples on when he was feeling an emotion when he was unsure of an answer.
I think sometimes it’s hard for children to distinguish what emotion they are feeling. So talking about emotions can help a child understand their emotion and know that their emotion is valid.
We will have to try out the other activities at a later date when the kids are feeling scared, sad or angry.
I would definitely recommend this book, and I would eventually buy a physical copy just to have it on hand and go through the book with my kids again. It was nice and interesting to listen to what makes them feel different ways.
Thank you @netgalley and Chouette Publishing for the digital copy of The Little Prince: My Book of Feelings by Corinne Delporte for reviewing purposes.
A very sweet book which would make for great talking points with younger children who are struggling to understand how they are feeling. I really like the piano key-style layout down the side and it's simplicity makes it a story children could access on their own as their reading skills develop.
Wow this little book is just perfect for exploring and explaining emotions and feelings in a relatable way. The excerises at the end are simplely explained in a way that children will remember to help release uncomfortable emotions. A great little book that is very well laid out where each emotion has a colour. Thanks Netgalley.
The Little Prince: My Book if Feelings, helps children think, explore and have a good understanding of feelings and how their feelings affect them and others.
This will help them move forward in their lives being emotionally balanced as they will understand how others may also feel.
Ever the classic, The Little Prince is back in a new style to teach young children emotions. It’s hard to be new to the world and this book helps navigate and explain what one might be feeling. It does so by giving a color to the emotion, as well as explaining not just circumstances one might feel that emotion in, but also physiological symptoms of the emotion. There are small examples of each where the Little Prince provides an example of what makes them happy, sad, scared, etc and poses a question to help start a conversation. This is a brilliant tool for teaching little one’s about their emotions.
A useful book for anyone that wants to help the children in your life discuss their feelings. The illustrations are wonderful! Thanks for the opportunity to access this ARC
A quick little review for a quick little book!
This book is simple and sweet, i’ve always loved the little prince.
It’s a great introduction to emotions for tiny kids, i’d reconvened it for ages 2-5, especially if you want to start a conversation about emotions and how to identify them.
The exercises at the end are simple and easy to follow for kids, and it’d be a great way to introduce grounding techniques to young children.
I think this is a great book to help explain feelings and emotions to younger kids. The descriptions are fun and the illustrations are cute helping to explain what makes the prince express his feelings. And the exercises at the end of the book are great to help kids work through their emotions. I highly recommend for parents!
The Little Prince: My book of Feelings is a well designed book teaching young kids about emotions.
The text is well written and appropriate for the target audience. The illustrations are on the simplistic side, which I appreciated, because I felt that their simplicity helped showcase the message of the book, without visually distracting the reader. I think it would be a most helpful book in a preschool or early elementary setting and has a lot of potential for SEL lessons for that age group. Overall a worthwhile addition to your class or home library!
Whether you're a fan of The Little Prince (and really, who isnt'?) or not, this book stands alone. It has the charm of the original title, but for toddlers, this book is not only charming, but also a unique way to help children express their feelings. The sooner children can understand/learn how to do this, the better for their future. I highly recommend this book. Thank you to NetGalley and Chouette Publishing for an e-'ARC of this title in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
Beautiful illustrations and carefully thought out explanations of each emotion make this a perfect book to use to help children explore their feelings. I would recommend this book to parents, carers and teachers to help with children's emotional development.
It´s a sweet, short and direct childrens book. The drawings are nice and I think many children are going to enjoy learning about feelings and moods etc from this book.
Learning and discussing emotions is a must do when you have children. This was a great way for me open the conversation in a fun and learning atmosphere. The added bonus of this book for me was having the book ask you questions are you read. "What makes you Happy, what makes you feel calm?" The descriptions of each emotion in the book and describing them to make it easier to understand is a helpful tool. I enjoyed this book and will be using it when my household needs another feeling talk.
Thank you NetGalley for the eARC.
