   Great book for children working through emotions.
The first book I read with my daughter was this one. We are trying to identify emotions by color and talk about them. She is aware of her emotions now that this doesn't work.
I will be buying this for my classroom. I need a few more books. Can't wait to start the new year.
   in a simple, friendly way.
One day, Color Monster was confused. His feelings are all over the place. He feels angry, happy, calm, sad, and scared at the same time! A little girl shows him what each feeling means. As he learns to sort and define his emotions, he gains self-awareness and peace. Everyone will enjoy sharing this concept book that taps into both socio-emotional growth and color concepts.
   Almost perfect
The book teaches important skills such as identifying and managing emotions. This is done with illustrations and text. The story is relevant and engaging. If it had aligned with the popular Zones of Regulation curriculum, it would've been perfect. I mention this in particular for other educational counselors, who may be considering this book for that very purpose, as I did. I will absolutely use this book with my students because we are an Adaptivist lot.
   My 5 Year Old’s Favorite Story
And mine as well. The book is about a little girl helping a monster. So much love!
   Perfect for teaching emotional intelligence
This book is very popular with us. My three-year-old loves pointing out which emotion is on the page. Happiness, sadness, angry, fear, calm, and loved! There are pages dedicated to each emotion. My son is at the stage of choosing appropriate colors to convey certain art. We used crayons to depict different feelings, and he chose every coloremotion so appropriately, thanks to this book. He chose black for fear, red for anger, yellow for happy and red for loved.
   Wish anger was handled better
I bought this book to read to my child. He is in a stage of development and needs more scaffolding. I'll be nice and your anger will disappear is harmful if you've been married to an addiction. Being nice to an abusive person won't stop the cycle. It is easy to be mistaken for taking responsibility for another's emotions and choices when you say a soft answer. I change it when I read it. The book is wonderful in other aspects.
   Amazing at calming a worked up 3 year old
My 3 year old son was starting to have a lot of trouble with his temper and I was trying to calm him down or get him to stop acting crazy. I thought I would give this book a try because of what I have to lose. The book has worked well. Whenever my son starts to lose it, I ask him if he wants to sit with me and read the color monster book, and if he wants to sort through his colors. He always says yes. We read the book and talk about the different colors and how we can work together to get him back to green or yellow. It works and we are both happy.
   Lovely and helpful
The story helps children understand their feelings. Your 1st graders will love reading it at bed time.
   Not my favorite as a school counselor
The premise that we feel lots of feelings falls a little flat in this book. The Zones do not align with the colors and feelings of the kids who know them, and it is very confusing to them. Well illustrated, though!
