More on feelings...
This posting was inspired by this article about colour, happiness and depression: Different Colours Describe Happiness vs Depression
My Many Coloured Days, by Dr. Seuss, is a beautiful book that uses colour to express feelings. By reading and discussing this book with your child, you can help them understand that we all have moods. Our moods can change day to day, and that`s ok.
The book is also a great tool for talking about print awareness. Print awareness is noticing print everywhere.The text is written to reflect the illustrations/moods.
Here are two previous posts I wrote on print awareness.
Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Point them in the right direction...
