Author(s): Kerry Lee MacLean
A cleverly designed book that teaches children to recognize and handle their thoughts and emotions--with eight physically interactive pages. Young children have strong emotions, but often are unsure of how to articulate and handle them. "Just Me and My Mind" aims to help kids recognize their emotions and thoughts -- and then act accordingly. The book includes interactive pages of emotions (happy, scared, sad, loving, angry). The reader pulls an image of the emotion from the mind of the child, helping the reader to understand why emotions might arise. The book continues by illustrating how children can "clean out and settle" their minds with quiet contemplation.
