The Feelings Book is the emotional counterpart to the best-selling The Care & Keeping of You. It takes pretty scary questions-"Is it okay to feel this way? Am I normal?" and answers them in a friendly and understandable way. When girls are younger, their feelings seem simple--happy, sad, angry, mad--there isn't much to it. But as they get older, they may feel as if they're on emotional rollercoasters. Feelings get more complex and moods start swinging. This title helps girls learn to deal with their feelings. They'll get tips, how-to's, and straightforward advice on expressing feelings, understanding them, and handling them. Topics covered include: Sweaty Palms and Knocking Knees, Why Do You Cry?, Feeling Out of Control, Sorting it Out, Feeling Positive, Reaching Out to Others, Includes a section with strategies for coping with specific emotions (fear, anxiety, jealousy, anger, loneliness, sadness, grief, feeling safe). The overriding message is that if you learn about your feelings you can keep them from spinning out of control. You can be in the driver's seat--and that makes the ride on the rollercoaster a whole lot easier.
