Children's books on feelings and emotions
Published on 12th September 2023
As children grow, they begin to encounter new experiences, situations and feelings which can sometimes be hard to deal with or understand. Reading books is a friendly, engaging, creative and informal way to help parents interact and talk to their children about any situation or feeling they may be experiencing. Dublin City Libraries provide children and their parents with a wide range of books covering a multitude of topics to help children understand what is happening. We have board books, picture books and non-fiction books for you to enjoy and to make discussing these topics less daunting.
The books that we stock in our libraries cover topics such as:
- Emotions, Feelings and Anxieties
- Parents and Families
- Siblings and New Baby
- First Experiences
- Life Experiences
- Potty Training
- Bedtime and Sleep
- Embracing Differences
- Accepting Everyone
- Being You!
