Parents this book is a great way to explore and play with feelings together with your children. There are animal pictures that children can enjoy and talk about. This is a beautiful way for your children to make friends with their feelings and learn how to "play" with them. It's also a way to encourage us to keep remembering and returning to positive and nurturing feelings and memories. This creates healthy neural networks in our brains. Something as simple as remembering an animal or happy feeling can change our whole body chemistry. We can anchor happy feelings and memories in our neural networks by remembering them and "replaying" them to strengthen our "Happy Muscles". We probably all remember when we were young how feelings came and went quickly and didn't "stick" so much. A simple belly laugh could easily erase feelings then and bring us back to joy and wonder. This is the feeling of wonder and gratitude for just being alive. Watch as a child loses him or herself with an insect, animal, small pebble. or even a faraway star. They are lost in the feeling of wonder and joy. We can all remember that as our natural happy place we lived in when we were young. We can reclaim this when we give space to and appreciate our children's silent moments of wonder and joy.

Yummy Me feels so good is a great way to begin talking about emotions and feelings for kids aged 2-5.  Simple text accompanied by playful animal drawings help children to associate the feeling with the animal.  The text reassures children that it is ok to feel all of these feelings at any point, but to not get stuck there; a lesson we all need sometimes.  A simple way to help kids understand and appreciate everything they feel in a day with a gentle reminder to return to who they truly are
