That is one reason that my book is so important. My book is a way to help teach young boys and girls to name and share their feelings. You can start all kinds of nice talks about feelings with my book? You can talk about how your face looks when you feel a certain feeling. Or, you can ask what makes each other what makes you feel certain feelings.
Sometimes, children have a hard time sharing their feelings. They might be too scared to tell someone. Or, they might not know what they feel or how to say it.
Some people use art therapy to help share their feelings. That is when you use drawing, painting, molding clay, or something like that to help share your feelings. Here is a video to help explain it. It is probably better for the adults out there to watch the video, because it can be hard for kids to understand. But…kids can watch it too. There is nothing bad in it or anything like that.
Taylor Freeman is not only an art therapist. She is also an author, like Jodi Desautels. Very cool!
