Big Feelings (Hardcover)
Spring 2021 Kids Indie Next List
“A great jumping-off point for discussions about all those big feelings! This is a beautiful book about working through whatever is happening and whatever you’re feeling. It doesn’t minimize one’s emotions, but rather shows tools for coping. I love looking at how each individual approaches the different situations — you could write a whole thesis on community and personal relationships with this book.”

In their bestselling picture book All Are Welcome, Alexandra Penfold and Suzanne Kaufman celebrate kindness, inclusivity, and diversity. Now with Big Feelings, they help children navigate the emotional challenges they face in their daily lives.
What should we do when things don't go to plan? We may feel mad, frustrated, or overwhelmed, but by talking it through, compromising, and seeing another point of view, we can start fresh, begin anew.
Suzanne Kaufman is an author, illustrator, animator, and lover of school potlucks. Her books include All Are Welcome, Confiscated, I Love Monkey, 100 Bugs, Naughty Claudine Christmas, and Samanthasaurus Rex.

“As with its predecessor, its strength is again the diversity on display in its pages.” –Kirkus Reviews
