Another great book to teach about emotions

Today I Am by Mies van Hout is a beautifully illustrated book with each open page containing the label of a single emotion and a fish illustrating that feeling.  It covers 20 basic feelings in all.  The simple text allows it to be used for a variety of activities in counseling.  The illustrations are very engaging for a young reader.  This book also comes as an interactive iPad app.  The app version not only allows it to be read on the iPad but a child can record the feeling they are experiencing today.  This could also be used in counseling or recommended to parents as a way to help their child learn about and express feelings.
