Dear Me, Letters to Myself For All of My Emotions teaches young children how to recognize and manage the emotions they feel throughout the day. Through a series of letters that begin with, "Dear Me," a young child writes down his feelings. These letters allow him to recognize that he can change how he feels while practicing self-kindness and compassion.
Dear Me serves as a guide to help kids learn about expressing feelings, understanding those feelings, and then deciding what to do about them in ways that are healthy, helpful, and kind. The book models several approaches for parents, but, more directly, models how children can develop the social-emotional skill of managing emotions by naming emotions, journaling, and mindful breathing.
Beautiful illustrations support this empowering message designed to help children understand and appreciate all of their emotions.
