About Feelings Are…?
On one particularly difficult day, after receiving some sad news, my grandson saw me wipe away a tear. He touched my cheek and remarked matter-offactly, “There is water on your cheek, Grandma. It leaks!”
Children with autism often do not sense the feelings of others, and can have difficulty recognizing or relating to abstract emotions. I wrote Feelings Are…? to help my grandson learn about emotions and respecting others’ feelings. Logan loves ABCs and he caught on quickly. One of his favorites is “Y is for yearning.” He sure loves those croissants!
Reviewing The Feelings ABCs often with my grandson was a great first step in helping him learn to recognize and respect the feelings of others more. I hope this book will prove helpful to other children with autism also.
