Product Description

Starring the same little girl in the same charming illustration style as Hello In There!, In My Heart explores emotions--happiness, sadness, bravery, anger, shyness and more.

Unlike other feelings books that tend to oversimplify, In My Heart lyrically explains what an emotion feels like, physically, inside. For example: "When I get really angry, my heart feels like it's going to explode! Don't come near me! My heart is yelling, hot and loud. This is when my heart is mad."

Toddlers will be empowered by this new vocabulary and able to practice articulating and identifying their own emotions. On the cover and the right side of each spread, a die-cut heart decreases in size, creating a multi-coloured heart the depth of the entire book.

Great book to teach little ones about the range of emotions


We bought this for my three year old and 2 years on he still likes to read it at bed.


Love this book! This is one of my 4yr olds favourite books.


The illustrations, and cut out heart shapes are beautiful. I believe how the author describes the feelings of the character and how it makes their heart feel are very relatable for young children. Would recommend for 3 to 6 year olds.

Great book to get the little one talking about emotions


I bought this book for my grandchildren after a teacher recommended it. I read it to my 4 year old grandson and it prompted a long conversation about feelings and hiw he was feeling at the time.



Perfect preschooler book for explaining emotions


This is a truly beautiful book and deserves multiple readings. Preschoolers will love it but it also works for a simple read for kids in early primary school years.

Amazing Kids' Book


This book is fantastic for helping young kids explore there emotions and discuss them with you. It gives them a language for describing how they feel. I have used this book a few times to help my 3 year old daughter talk to me about things that are upsetting her eg worried about impending arrival of a sibling, separation anxiety at daycare drop off. I have found it helped her to open up and explain to me how she felt and in turn I could help her understand those feelings and deal with them. This book is also beautiful. My daughter loves looking at the illustrations.



A beautiful book


My 5 yr old Grandson loves this book and ask for it regularly
