When Sophie's Feelings Are Really, Really Hurt Reviews
My toddler cannot get enough of this book. She makes us read it to her every day and even took it to preschool with her to show her teachers!
Molly Bang did it again! I use these books when working with kids on how to deal with their emotions. Beautiful artwork and story to go along with it. I hope she does more Sophie books in the future!
I was really hoping that this book was more about how a child should manage when his/her feelings are hurt. Instead, it's about a girl who draws a picture of a tree with non-normal colors and is laughed at by a child in the class. The teacher says that the picture is good because she drew how she felt. This is a nice story, but the title is misleading.
good book for kids who struggle with regulating/expressing their feelings. probably for all kids too
My son loves Sophie books, they are good to explain emotions.
Bought this book to read to my daughters first grade class. My daughters feelings were being hurt by her classmates. The children loved the story and illustrations. My daughter is no longer feeling sad at school.
Little to old for my granddaughter
This book encourages children to express their feelings and creativity through art. When Sophie paints her favorite tree, the tree looks sad being gray. So, she paints it a vibrant blue and paints animals on its branches. Now the tree looks happy!
