Feelings by Alice Le Henand


This book by Alice Le Henand is called Feelings. It is a pull-the-tab book. On each page there is something happening and it shows how the child is feeling. Then the adult does and says something and the child’s feelings change, as we pull the tab.

[Read the book talking about what is happening on each page. Adults can say what they may have done in the situation even if different from what is done in the book.]

[Page 3 uses the word disgusted.]

Early Literacy Tip—Example—Vocabulary: We often use common words for feelings like happy and sad. Using some less common words to describe your children’s feelings can help them identify those feelings. It helps them not only with emotional development, but also it helps them learn new words which will later help them understand what they read.
