A Feelings Book for Children: The Feelings Hotel

Welcome to The Feelings Hotel

No matter what age we are, the ability to understand emotions and talk about how we are doing can help us to connect with others, tackle challenges and build our resilience long term. That’s why learning about our emotions is so important. If we can notice different feelings as they come up, we have a better chance of working through them. The Feelings Hotel is a book about Feeling for children.

“Brilliantly helps young children”

I am a mum and a mental health nurse so have always been acutely aware of the importance of teaching our children to recognise and regulate their emotions. I was delighted to find Emma’s feelings hotel story and emotions cards. This is the first time I have come across something that so brilliantly helps young children to recognise and normalise their emotions, both pleasant and tricky ones.

“Excited to continue to discuss this book

The Feelings Hotel gives children a fun visual of what a feeling might look like. Most importantly, this resource teaches children how to be aware of their feelings, to know it is ok to have them and most importantly, that it is normal for several feelings to pass on by throughout the course of a day. I’m excited to continue to discuss this book, the characters and the other parts of this resource in our future classes.
