Where Do Your Feelings Live?
Catherine Hernandez, illustrated by Myriam Chery
A picture book about how we can show love to difficult feelings, from the acclaimed author of M Is for Mustache: A Pride ABC Book and I Promise.
When you're someplace unfamiliar
How do you feel?
Does your feeling live in your tummy where strange creatures roam in fields of prickly grass?
Does it want to burrow its head deep in the sand where no one can find it?
In Catherine Hernandez's new picture book, young readers are encouraged to show compassion to themselves, their families and their communities, and to imagine where inside themselves they keep their feelings.
Championing young people for weathering the storms of their many emotions and trying their best, Where Do Your Feelings Live? is a gentle celebration of all the tricky feelings that make us who we are. This buoyant and touching text is brought vibrantly to life by illustrations from Quebec artist Myriam Chery. (From HarperCollins)
