Shy Spaghetti and Excited Eggs

It’s got a cool title and cute illustrations, yet Shy Spaghetti and Excited Eggs:  A Kid’s Menu of Feelings is a nonfiction picture book. It clearly identifies feelings such as shy and worried in terms kids can understand.  “Annoyed is being mini-mad,” the authors tell us,441B069-150 also explaining the other subset of angry:  grumpy, irritable and frustrated. Then, we learn what to do when our feelings boss us around–a different list of possible actions for each feeling.

Written by clinical psychologists Marc Nemiroff and Jane Annunziata; illustrated by Christine Battuz.
