The Mental Health Book Club Podcast loved this book, both
Becky and Sydney gave it 5*.
This book is a fantastic read and is a must for schools, children’s libraries as well as children’s bookshelves. The books heart concept is perfectly represented by the cut-out heart which decreases in size as the book moves on.
It is fun, beautiful and a great teaching tool. The book
explains emotions in a simple and yet profound way. Children are able to
understand the variety of emotions we feel and understand how you might feel
The book can be read alone by advanced readers, but more
usefully it can be read with an adult to help start a conversation around
emotions and their validity.

Sometimes my heart feels like a big yellow star, shiny and bright.
I smile from ear to ear and twirl around so fast,
I feel as if I could take off into the sky.
This is when my heart is happy.
Happiness, sadness, bravery, anger, shyness . . . our hearts can feel so many feelings! Some make us feel as light as a balloon, others as heavy as an elephant. In My Heart explores a full range of emotions, describing how they feel physically, inside. With language that is lyrical but also direct, toddlers will be empowered by this new vocabulary and able to practice articulating and identifying their own emotions. With whimsical illustrations and an irresistible die-cut heart that extends through each spread, this unique feelings book is gorgeously packaged.
