From a very young age, children learn about their emotions. They understand they feel something and may very well act on it. As they grow, they will be learning how to identify their emotions as well as learning how to process them. If you are a bilingual teacher or if you are teaching Spanish to young children, I recommend the following books to teach the emotions in Spanish.
El Monstruo de Colores
This book will give clues in colorful pictures for children to be able to learn and identify their emotions. This book does really well with young children. A must have in a Spanish library.
The English version of this book illustrates common emotions as happiness, sadness, anger, fear, and calmness. This book gently encourages young children to open up with parents, teachers, and daycare providers about their feelings. Kids will LOVE the bright illustrations and amazing 3-D pop-ups on every page!
Asi Me Siento Yo
Picture book filled with illustrations on a variety of feelings.
Alexander y el Dia Terrible, Horrible, Espantoso, Horroroso: Spanish Edition
This book is FAVORITE in English and I am so glad to have found a Spanish edition. The best part of this story is that it puts the names of emotions into context making it easier for Spanish Language Learners to really learn the names of the emotions and know how to use them in context. Great book to have in your Spanish library!
