Karen and Kathy Sillsabout this book: This book is about a little boy named Bobbie, he has a dream about the toy store. When he wakes up he goes and ask his mother if they can go to the toy store. His mother says no, Bobbie experience many feelings. He also throws a fit, thinking that will get his way. During time out Bobbie comes up with an idea that may help him get to go to the toy store.
We work with children in daycare, so we no off hand that children express their feelings in many ways. We do a unit on feelings and therefore we needed a story to go along with the unit. I wrote the first half, then Kathy read it and took up where I left off. That's how the story came about!
The primary readers for this book is young children from 3 to maybe 8, however younger children would enjoy the story too. This book is an excellent teaching tool for parents and teachers, and the children can take part in the story as well. Children with learning problems can benefit from this book too. Reading this book to problemed children is a way to help them deal with their feelings.
We came up the the title together. Since the book is based on feelings we decided Feelings, Feelings, Feelings would suit the book. We may write a part two to go along with this book, for their are so many more feelings that children experience.
Rosedog helped us in choosing the cover, but we think it fits the book well because Happy is what every child deserves to feel. The hardest thing in writing would be wanting to make it fun the children to read.
I believe in writing this book we learned that dreams can come true even if you have to self publish. We have always wanted to be authors, and now we are! Teachers, parents, I believe that if you get a copy of this book and read it to your children they will benefit from it. Children who are old enough to read for themselves, pay attention to the story and keep an open mind.

Excellent Reading Tool For Children With Behavior NeedsI find this book an excellent teaching tool for young children. Being a PreK Teacher I have read it to my class and they always want to hear it again! Perfect for parents too! I have children in my class that has behavior problems, and this book helped, not only me but them too. Bravo! [by Faye Jones]
Great Learning BookI am a teacher, and found this book to be helpful with my lesson plans. I highly recommend it. I have read this book already several times to my class, but they still ask for it to be read. I think every childcare centers needs at least one book for the center, but a book in each room is best.
