How are the kids doing? Are they scared? Happy? Sad? Angry? They probably are feeling all those emotions. In good times or bad, children show a range of emotions. Use your words That's what parents and teachers often say to kids, but sometimes kids don't know the words to say. Now they will. How Are You Today? A Celebration of Children's Emotions, is a game-changing book for educators, counselors, and parents to use in their efforts to teach kids to name their feelings. Those emotion words are a hot topic in education, often referred to as social and emotional learning or SEL. Research shows that one of the greatest predictors of a child's success in school is their social and emotional health.

The book has multicultural images of children and emojis on each page that capture a range of emotions from A-to-Z. There is an interactive question following the emotion that engages the children in a conversation. For example, one page shows a child sitting in a dentist chair looking up at the lamp. The text reads, "I'm feeling nervous. What makes you feel nervous?"

The book is geared toward a pre-kindergarten to elementary audience, but every age will be delighted by the photographs. Children everywhere will not only relate to the images in the book but also the emojis.
