Help young children build their emotional vocabulary.

You Have Feelings All the Time serves as a reminder that emotions are a healthy, normal part of life. Some of those feelings are big and some are quiet. Some feel good and others can feel uncomfortable—and that’s okay. Written from the perspective of a caring adult speaking to a child, this charming book helps young children build an emotional vocabulary.
You Have Feelings All the Time is an affirming and supportive book about children’s many different feelings. It helps preschoolers develop emotional literacy by naming and normalizing emotions. Strong emotions can scare or overwhelm kids, and helping them see that everyone feels mad, sad, or scared sometimes can comfort them and build their perspective-taking skills and their emotional vocabulary.
Its charming rhyme and heartwarming message make the book perfect for storytime, home, the preschool classroom, and whenever children need help building an emotional vocabulary.

All the Time Series
