The Dealing with Feelings series returns to help kids battle the green-eyed monster—jealousy!
In This Makes Me Jealous, a young girl is proud of being the star athlete at her school. But when a new kid moves to town and she suddenly has to share the spotlight, jealousy gets the best of her. After a tough soccer matchup, the girl's gym teacher helps her to empathize with the new student and give her a chance. Soon, the girl learns that making new friends and being inclusive are more important than being the best.
The Dealing with Feelings series of early readers is designed to give voice to what's brewing inside. Through short, simple text and repetitive observational phrases, children will learn to name their emotions as they learn to read.
