How Do I Feel? A Dictionary of Emotions for Children

Author(s): Rebekah Lipp

Picture books - NZ | NEW AND NOTABLE

Join Aroha and her friends as they share how different emotions might feel in the body and how each emotion might be helpful.


This emotions dictionary is all about helping children find the words for how they truly feel. Learning to recognise and label our emotions correctly is such an important skill for life. Giving our children this language helps to build emotional literacy. It is a gift to give children the tools to know how to recognise what they truly feel and that is it okay to feel all emotions. When they know that no emotion is 'good' or 'bad' and that all emotions provide messages, then it takes away any attachment to that emotion being part of who they are.


We may have experienced this ourselves being labelled 'naughty' or 'out of control' due to feeling angry a lot. However, this behaviour is just a way for a child to communicate. Diving deeper into why they are acting that way, why they may be feeling the things they are, can help us find some answers with our child. It can also help us find ways to help them empower themselves with tools to feel better.


Use this book to start conversations about different emotions. If you can, give examples of things you have experienced. When you see a child experiencing an emotion, help your child label it.


This book can be used with children from 5 years of age up to 100+ as everyone might get something from the book.

Product Information

"This book is a much-needed tool for children and those caring for them. By showing that a wide range of emotions each have their own unique value and purpose, this book helps to both normalise and encourage understanding towards the big emotions and feelings that, although sometimes demonised, are experienced by each and every one of us at some point in our lives." - Danielle Whitburn, Marketing and Communications Team Lead, Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand

Bex Lipp was co-founder of award-winning business Awesome Inc, which started around creating gratitude journals, and was a great base to launch into publishing children's books. Bex also co-wrote the book 'Finding Gratitude' through Quarto Publishing in the US. Bex's own personal story of struggles with mental health issues led her to come up with the idea of making a picture book around the emotions associated with anxiety.
