Hurt Feelings book

In a sequel to her bestselling When Sophie Gets Angry..., Caldecott Honor Illustrator Molly Bang asks: What hurts your feelings, and what do you do about it? This book was published in September 2015 but I just discovered it when looking for books to teach children to self-regulate. It teaches kids to accept different points of view.

Everyone's feelings get hurt, and it's especially painful in childhood. In this story, Bang's popular character Sophie is hurt when the other children laugh at her and tell her she's wrong. Sophie's face gets hot, and tears begin to flow. Then she questions herself and the value of the choices she's made. I am planning to use this with a small group but it would make a great lesson to cover some of the ASCA Mindsets and Behaviors in the area of self-management and social skills.
