Felicia wakes up each morning and notices her feelings. Sometimes she feels happy, but sometimes she feels sad or angry. How can Felicia help herself feel calm and at peace? She starts by thinking of a place that makes her feel calm. She listens to her body. She uses her breath. She knows she can do it.
Young children will learn about their own feelings and discover that they, like Felicia, have the power within to transform their feelings from negative feelings to positive ones. This story will help children identify their feelings and empower them to take ownership of their feelings and positively transform them.
