The Color Monster by Anna Llenas
In the story, Color Monster wakes up feeling very confused. His emotions are all over the place; he feels angry, happy, calm, sad, and scared all at once!
To help him, a little girl shows him what each feeling means through color. As this adorable monster learns to sort and define his mixed up emotions, he gains self-awareness and peace as a result.
You'll enjoy sharing this book that focuses on both socio-emotional growth and color concepts in a simple and friendly way.
