“Supporting children to understand and cope with big feelings is one of the most important roles caregivers and those working with children can play. Sharon has created an engaging and easy-to-understand guide for children and their caregivers. This book provides adults with a natural way to talk with children about feelings and hands-on mindfulness activities that are not only fun to practice but help develop children's ability to deal with their big feelings.” —Rachel Trask, parent and registered counselor

“Here is a book for parents, teachers, and counselors. Sharon's tips are practical and child-friendly. I like the inclusion of ‘too excited’ as one of the big feelings for children to learn ways to channel the energy.” —Sarina Kot, PhD, registered psychologist and registered play therapist-supervisor

“Sharon has created a supportive and memorable collection of exercises to help children navigate their own biology. The explanations are simple and effective, and Anna's beautiful drawings draw the reader into the book. What a wonderful book, teaching important skills that will last a lifetime!” —Sunny Wight, executive director of Mindfulness First

“Sharon's book is great for children and grown-ups alike. Her easy-to-apply emotion-regulation strategies are fun and hands-on. The tools she provides for every emotion connect the body with all its senses, the heart with all its emotions, and the brain with all its thoughts. A must-have book for any family and therapist.” —Sarah Fenrich, occupational therapist and sleep coach for kids
