Friendly and positive, F is for Feelings uses an alphabet-book format to share and reinforce emotional language and the idea that while some feelings are more comfortable than others, all emotions are natural and important.

F is for Feelings

“F Is for Feelings helps adults teach children a language as essential as our ABCs: the language of emotions without which we cannot communicate what is most real and important in our lives, without which we cannot communicate ourselves to others.”
