Top Books About Big Feelings

Big feelings start young. Saying “I HATE *insert your sister’s name here” into your bedroom door... feeling excited about using your brand new 64 COUNT box of Crayons with a built in sharpener… getting nervous about starting a new school year… OR loving the awe of being awoken at 2 AM by your dad to show you your first comet.

These big feelings carry into parenthood. We find ourselves constantly trying to help our children navigate their own paths through these big feelings (which is NOT an easy task!). At GoBe, we are a team of parents and super fun “anything goes” aunts 🥳 and over the years, we’ve collected our fair share of books to help our children identify and navigate their feelings.

Check out our top picks. Don’t see your favorite book? Share it with us (so we can immediately add it to our Amazon cart)! Book descriptions taken from Amazon.

Two more books are behind it, "Ruby's Worry" and "Ruby Finds a Worry"

Big Bright Feelings series

The ‘Big Bright Feelings’ is another one of our favorite series, providing great ways to talk about mental and emotional health, positive self-image, self-confidence, and feelings.

Image shows the cover of "Breathe Like a Bear" which depicts a light brown bear sitting cross legged with its eyes serenely closed. A fox and an owl sit behind it with similar poses and expressions, all sitting on a grass hill.

Breathe Like a Bear

Breathe Like a Bear provides 30 simple, short breathing practices and movements that you and your little ones can perform anytime, anywhere.


Image depicts the cover of "Red, Red, Red" which shows a toddler in a matching blue shirt and pants set and red socks, yelling, with bright red scribbles encircling them.

Red, Red, Red 

Red, Red, Red is a true-to-life, upbeat story about a toddler tantrum that offers a meditative way to calm little ones down.

 Image shows the book cover of "Grumpy Monkey" which shows an illustrated monkey from the shoulders up with a grumpy facial expression
Grumpy Monkey

Grumpy Monkey is about a chimpanzee named Jim who is in a terrible mood for no reason.  His friends have a lot of suggestions but nothing seems to help. Could it be that he just needs a day to feel grumpy?  We can relate!

Image shows the cover of the book "Jonathan James and the Whatif Monster" which shows a blue frame containing the title and author byline, and a green furry monster with a black and yellow striped arm reaching out of the frame with a worried facial expression.

Jonathan James and the Whatif Monster

Whenever Jonathan James finds himself in a new situation, he hears his Whatif Monster asking all kinds of questions to stop him trying something new: What if it's scary? What if they laugh? Finally, Jonathan James has some questions of his own: What if they don't? What then?

Image shows the cover of the book "A Perfectly Messed Up Story" which has a loosely doodled image of a child in yellow footed pajamas holding a book open, surrounded by crayon scribbles, inked finger prints, a scan of a smear of jelly, and a scan of a tea stain in the shape of the bottom of a cup to give the cover a messy look.

A Perfectly Messed-Up Story

Little Louie's story keeps getting messed up, and he's not happy about it! What's the point of telling his tale if he can't tell it perfectly? But when he stops and takes a deep breath, he realizes that everything is actually just fine, and his story is a good one--imperfections and all.

Image depicts the cover of the book "What If I Know My Feelings?" which shows a green furry monster with cat ears from the nose up, peering over the last word "FEELINGS"

What If I Know My Feelings?

Learn all about feelings – and ideas for dealing with them – with Whatif Monsters!

Image depicts the cover of the book "In My Heart" which shows a girl jumping over a colorful heart with a calm content facial expression. The heart is colorful because each layer is a cut out of a page deeper into the book. Below the heart is an abstract forest of trees, plants, and flowers.

Happiness, sadness, bravery, anger, shyness… our hearts can feel so many feelings! Some make us feel as light as a balloon, others as heavy as an elephant. In My Heart explores a full range of emotions, describing how they feel.

Image depicts the book cover of "Maya and the Stage Fright" which shows a young girl with curly brown hair and brown skin peeking from behind a large starry purple curtain at a microphone on a stand with a spotlight on the center of a stage. A smaller boy looks out with her from the shadows, both are dressed casually and have worried facial expressions.

Whether your child loves to sing, dance, or act, sometimes the thought of sharing that talent in front of a crowd can be terrifying. But that fear doesn't have to stop them from doing what they love! Maya and the Stage Fright offers interactive opportunities and strategies for overcoming stage fright.

Image depicts the cover of the book "Wemberly Worried" which shows a portrait of a worried looking mouse with a spot over one eye, holding a plush rabbit. The mouse is surrounded by a frame of colorful concentric circles.

Wemberly worried about everything. Big things. Little things. And things in between. Then it was time for school to start. And Wemberly worried even more. If you ever worry (or know someone who does), this is the book for you.
