About this item


About the Book

Highly recommended by teachers and therapists for kids coping with emotions, The Boy with Big, Big Feelings is relatable for any child -- especially kids experiencing anxiety, extreme emotions, autism or diagnosed as a Highly Sensitive Person. Boldly illustrated, this rhyming book pairs with The Girl With Big, Big Questions.

Book Synopsis

An instant classic in the world of Social-Emotional Learning, this bestselling picture book tells the story of one little boy with some big, big emotions -- and how he learns to see them for the gifts they are.

The Boy with Big, Big Feelings is relatable for any child -- especially for a child experiencing anxiety, extreme emotions, a child identified as a Highly Sensitive Person, or a child on the autism spectrum. Beautifully illustrated and written in rhyming verse, children and adults explore the whole spectrum of feelings and readers navigate the emotional challenges they face throughout the day.

The main character has feelings so big that they glow from his cheeks, spill out of his eyes, and jump up and down on his chest. When he hears a joke, he bursts with joy. When a loud truck drives by, he cries. When his loved ones are having a hard day, he feels their emotions as if they were his own.

The boy tries to cope by stuffing down his feelings, but with a little help and artistic inspiration, the boy realizes his feelings are something to be celebrated.

The Big, Big series inspires kids to embrace whatever it is inside them that makes them unique--whether it's big feelings, big ideas, or big questions. Full of creativity and tenderness, each book in the series offers readers connection and companionship as they navigate the challenges of growing up.

Review Quotes

"With creativity and tenderness, Britney Winn Lee and Jacob Souva invite children and adults alike to understand the value of our emotions and why they aren't a hindrance but instead a part of what allows us to experience life with resilience and connection." --Aundi Kolber, Author, Speaker, and Trauma-Informed Therapist

"The Boy with Big, Big Feelings is a story that's big enough for all of us to feel seen. Winn Lee's rhythmic text saves space for the sensitive kids whose emotions rest just beneath the skin. And in welcoming us into those quiet and confusing emotional places, the story offers connection and companionship, reminding us that 'big emotions affect ALL of us!'" --Matthew C. Winner, School Librarian and host of The Children's Book Podcast

A treasure for anyone—young or old! The pages are filled with beautiful imagery that deals with hard emotions that arise in all of us. Emotional awareness and processing is one of the greatest skills to be learned, and Britney does it beautifully alongside Jacob’s colorful and imaginative illustrations. Can’t recommend this one enough! Perfect for families, schools, counselors, and anyone with a heart that feels. :)

A story about a boy who struggles with lots of feelings. Seems like they’re trying to point out he may be on the spectrum. Very sweet and helps teach empathy for others. Wasn’t so much about how to work through feelings as it is just being ok with them happening and supporting others who have if feelings.
