Glad Monster, Sad Monster: A Book About Feelings

by Anne Miranda, Ed Emberley Illustrated by Ed Emberley

Sometimes it's hard to tell someone that you are sad, happy, lonely, or glad. This joyful and useful book enables children and adults to discuss feelings in an easy and nonthreatening way.

Each spread features a friendly monster that talks about a particular feeling. After reading about each monster, children are encouraged to share their own feelings by using masks that fold out from the book.
