PICTURE STORYBOOKS. A Book of Feelings stars a brother and sister, Sam and Kate, and their dog, Fuzzy Bean. Sam and Kate know what makes them happy: cuddling Mum, reading a story with Dad, swimming, running and dancing...lots of things. But they don't feel happy all the time (nor does Fuzzy Bean), and in the course of the book we see them feeling grumpy, embarrassed, shy, nervous, frightened, sad and jealous. Both words and pictures portray the children in many different situations at home and at school, and show how they change over time, how emotions can escalate, and how people can help each other. Amanda McCardie's supremely subtle and sensitive text is as alive to the nuances of children's behaviour as Salvatore Rubbino's amazing pictures. Ages 0+
It's Mood Monday and Miss Cady's class is sharing how they feel after the weekend. But Theo doesn't know whether he's in a good mood or a bad mood. He has a new baby sister and he isn't just happy like Eric who got a new bike or sad like April who lost her dog. As Theo's classmates discuss all their feelings, he realizes he's not in a good mood or a bad mood—he's all those things!

A Book to Help Children with Attachment Difficulties, Learning or Developmental Disabilities Understand their Emotions
Author: Tracey Ross
Publisher: Jessica Kingsley Publishers
Even though you can't see them, we all have feelings. Some feelings are fluffy and make us feel good. Some are sharp and make us unhappy. Sometimes we have fluffy and sharp feelings at the same time! It's ok to have different types of feelings, but there are some things we can do to let the sharp feelings out when they get too big, or when we have too many. This picture book is ideal for children ages 5 and above to help them understand why they might experience different emotions, and what they can do to help them manage their emotions in a positive way. Written in simple language, this book will be an excellent tool for any child who finds it difficult to understand their emotions, particularly those with attachment difficulties, or a learning or developmental disability.
Elmo, Big Bird, and their Sesame Street friends interact in various scenarios that give rise to emotions associated with colors, from feeling "blue" or "in the pink" to being "green with envy" or "red with embarrassment." On board pages.
You can read a book, but did you know that you can also read a face? A face can tell you what someone is feeling. In this expressive photo-essay, simple text and photographs introduce basic emotions happy, grumpy, thoughtful, and more and how people s
1998 erblickte einer der einflussreichsten Internetkonzerne das Licht der Welt. Einer, der nicht nur die IT-Welt eroberte, sondern es obendrein geschafft hat, einen eigenen Begriff zu prägen. Googeln schaffte es sogar in den Duden. Die Suchmaschine ist heute für Millionen Menschen die Anlaufstelle Nummer 1, wenn es um die Beschaffung von Informationen geht. Und von der ersten Stunde an dabei war Google-Mitarbeiter Nr. 59, Douglas Edwards. Mit viel Humor berichtet er von den Anfängen, der ganz eigenen Google-Kultur und seinen ganz persönlichen Erfahrungen in der sehr speziellen Welt eines Internet-Start-ups auf dem Weg zum Global Player. Er beschreibt, wie Larry Page und Sergey Brin mit Eigensinn und einer leichten Arroganz Google dahin brachten, wo Google heute ist und wofür Google steht. Atmen wir quasi die Google-Luft in der Konzernzentrale und begeben uns mit Douglas Edwards auf die Reise durch das Google-Imperium. Dabei erzählt er uns viele persönliche Geschichten darüber, wie es ist, im wohl eigenwilligsten Konzern der Welt zu arbeiten.
Wir würden an dieser Stelle gern von den zwei tapferen Helden dieses Buches erzählen, Kassandra und Max-Ernest, und davon, wie ein geheimnisvolles Kästchen, die "Symphonie der Düfte", die beiden auf die Spur eines Zauberers führt, der unter rätselhaften Umständen verschwunden ist. Wir würden gern von den haarsträubenden Abenteuern erzählen, die die beiden dann erleben, von den vertrackten Rätseln, die sie lösen, von den ruchlosen Schurken, die sie bekämpfen müssen. Aber leider können wir all dies nicht verraten! Denn sonst würdest du das Buch vielleicht lesen wollen. Doch das wäre einfach zu gefährlich! Denn dieses Buch enhält ein Geheimnis - um nicht zu sagen: das größte Geheimnis der Menschheit!!
We are often transformed and touched by the simplest things: an ocean breeze on our face, a child's hand in our own, the deep sound of bells off in the distance. In a world where complexity reigns, these poignant instances clear our heads. Bill Zimmerman's books are flashes of insight. He explores the longings of our heart and our creative impulses and gently encourages us to discover strength in our dreams, desires and vulnerability. What are the things you want to tell a child so that you can help them along in life? What strange adventure would you like to have? What will be the next milestone in your life? If you could be a smell, what would you be? What was your most marvelous dream? Many of us want to keep a journal, but when we decide to try, we're not quite sure what to write in it. More than just another 'questions' book or journal, A Book of Questions displays a penchant for flights of fancy, creative bursts, occasional silliness, a bit of tomfoolery and always, always glows with joy. A Book of Questions helps you decipher yourself and rediscover your priorities, strengths and inner happiness. The questions help you take your emotional and creative pulse and hear your special voice. They are meant to free you, to amuse you, to puzzle you and to help you break away from the hard work you do. Start this book when you are ready to listen to yourself.

Your emotions contain brilliant information. When you learn to welcome them as your allies, they can reveal creative solutions to any situation. For 35 years, empathic counselor and researcher Karla McLaren has developed a set of practical tools for the real-world stresses of family, career, and the quest for personal fulfillment. In The Language of Emotions, she presents her breakthrough teachings for a new and empowering relationship with your feeling states. Your emotions—especially the dark and dishonored ones—hold a tremendous amount of energy. We’ve all seen what happens when we repress or blindly express them. However, there is a powerful alternative. In The Language of Emotions, you’ll learn to meet your emotions and engage with them to safely move toward resolution and equilibrium. Through experiential exercises covering a full spectrum of feelings from anger, fear, and shame to jealousy, grief, joy, and more, you will discover how to work with your own and others’ emotions with fluency and expertise. When we relate to our emotions with respect and authenticity, we can directly access our innermost wisdom, unfold the deepest parts of ourselves, and heal our most painful wounds. The Language of Emotions gives us a much-needed resource for self-understanding and freedom: How to overcome addictions, distractions, and unresolved trauma—the three primary impediments to emotional ease Using the energy of anger to protect and restore personal boundaries Step-by-step guidance in the five skills of the empath (someone skilled in reading emotions) How to balance your “quaternity,” a metaphor for the interplay of mind, body, spirit, and emotions Honoring sadness as a source of release and rejuvenation Joy, the natural response to beauty and communion Praise “In my graduate education in counseling psychology, I found very little information about our emotions. Yet in my work as a therapist and educator, I’ve seen that emotions are key to healing. Karla McLaren’s book offers an outstanding guide to the signals and messages emotions send us, along with clear instructions for intelligent and emotion-supporting actions we can take in response. Karla has made a huge contribution to the well-being of us all; The Language of Emotions will become required reading in all of my courses.”—Nancy —Feehan, MFT, adjunct professor of counseling psychology at the University of San Francisco “Karla McLaren’s unique, empathic view of emotions surprisingly revalues even the most ‘negative’ emotions and opens pathways to understanding the depths of the human soul.” —Michael Meade, author of The World Behind the World and The Water of Life “This book changed the way I relate to others, and to myself, forever.” —Gavin De Becker, author of The Gift of Fear
