When children are hurting, a significant step in the healing process lies in teaching kids to recognize and name their emotions. That is the purpose of this book. In reading about, and thinking about, each of the emotions contained in this book, children will begin to recognize what is going on inside and be able to express that to other people. Recognizing these feeling does not equate to closure, but in talking about these feelings, they can find a measure of healing.
