“F Is for Feelings helps adults teach children a language as essential as our ABCs: the language of emotions without which we cannot communicate what is most real and important in our lives, without which we cannot communicate ourselves to others.”

“By learning feeling words and discussing the variety of ways to view evocative situations, youth can expand their emotional understanding . . . A round of applause for Millar and Berger—they have provided a valuable resource for parents, teachers, and therapists working with youth!”

“F Is for Feelings is fantastic! This book provides a comfortable, familiar structure of the ABCs to consider a wide range of feelings, both positive and not-so-positive, with self-talk examples throughout that may help children become more comfortable with emotions. Research is continually pointing us to the important role of feelings—they deserve a book of their own, and this is a great one!”

“As a pediatric speech language pathologist, I look for books that I can recommend to parents in my practice. This book is an excellent example of how to help children learn, understand, and use words that match what is happening on the inside. How refreshing to see feelings that go beyond the often overused ‘happy, sad, mad’!”

“What a wonderful book for children and their grown-ups alike! As a mother, and as a clinical psychologist who works primarily with post-secondary students, I am keenly aware of the importance of helping people of all ages to learn to experience and express their full range of emotions. Emotions are, quite simply, our guiding compass. Teaching children about emotions when they are young is a fundamental building block for good decision-making later in life.”

– Dr. Sarah Thompson, Clinical Psychologist at Ryerson University’s Centre for Student Development and Counselling

“I LOVE THIS BOOK!! You know how some littles just love ABC books? Well here’s one that’s right for everyone! Why? Because it’s the ABC book of feelings. For the kiddos who can’t read, the expressive and MULTICULTURAL illustrations detail exactly what each feeling means. . . . The end of the book includes an appendix of sorts that guides teachers and caregivers in ways to explore feelings and teach empathy.  Did I mention I LOVE this book?  An important addition to every library.”

“What a brilliant book for encouraging children to accept that they are likely to feel different emotions and to help them become more confident about discussing and describing their feelings. . . . It even has advice for grown ups to help them follow up . . . with suggested activities and discussions suitable for use with an individual child or a class. This is a really great book for helping children verbalize their emotions and accept that some are more comfortable than others! . . . I think this book could also be described as F is for Fantastic!”
