Announcing Our Latest Bilingual Book: Un Pequeno Libro Sobre Sentimientos
We are so thrilled to announce our newest book and the first installment of our bilingual books, Un Pequeno Libro Sobre Sentimientos, A Little Book About Feelings, in Spanish. The book takes a modern approach to helping young children cope with hardship and feel less alone in their big feelings.
Written by Samantha Kurtzman-Counter and Abbie Schiller, and illustrated with hand-felted adorable characters and diorama-style images, children are encouraged to recognize the wide range of human emotions in order to help establish empathy and compassion. Readers will find it comforting to learn that feelings are transitory and will not stay with them forever. They can benefit by knowing that there are many different feelings, some “achy and uncomfortable” and some “light and warm,” but all are OK.
“Countless studies show that when you give young children the words and appropriate ways to express their big feelings, they lead happier, healthier and more productive lives. This book is our contribution toward that goal for children in both English and Spanish-speaking homes.” Samantha Kurtzman-Counter, added, “All children, but especially those who are undergoing stress or trauma, need tools to understand and express their feelings in order to thrive. This book aims to do just that, reaching across language barriers to connect children through their common experience of emotion.”
